DOTD Division

The Fires Center's Directorate of Training Development and Doctrine will focus primarily on development of ADA and FA doctrine, joint doctrine, training instruction, training support materials, collective training, new capability training strategies, and lessons learned. The DOTD will plan, coordinate and execute actions for the Fires CoE while the FA and ADA branch schools within the CoE will continue to be the proponents for their respective fires integration.

Some specific functions of the DOTD will include serving as the center's and branch schools' staff proponent for operations, individual and collective training and doctrine development, and new capabilities training strategies development and fielding support.

The combined DOTD also will be responsible for designing the branches' simulations, simulators and training devices from developing the requirements document through fielding these training tools to units or training facilities. Once fielded, those in the schools become the responsibility of the two school brigades to execute training.
