RTI Courses

Infantryman Advance Leader Course

As the Army and our nation continue to evolve and change, our Trusted Associate Sponsorship System (TASS) Army National Guard Infantry program must also change to meet the challenges of today’s force structure. The Army National Guard, United States Army Infantry School (USAIS), Army School System (TASS) and the recently added Infantry Subject Matter Expert (SME) strive to provide every Soldier involved in the ARNG Infantry program with clear guidance of the execution of Infantry training. This course management plan (CMP) and the program of instruction (POI) is a continuing effort to provide a clear standard and clear guidance of ARNG Infantry training.

Small Arms Master Gunner Course

The Small Arms Master Gunner Course (SAMGC) provides an intense learning experience in small arms weapons proficiency, range operations skills and instructional expertise. Training is focused on 13 Warrior Training Tasks to include qualification on the M16/M4 rifle, M9 pistol, M203 grenade launcher, M240B light machine gun, M249 SAW, MK19 and M2HB machine gun.

Squad Designated Marksman Course

The primary mission of the Squad Designated Marksman (SDM)  is to deploy as a member of the rifle squad. The SDM is a vital member of his individual squad and not a squad sniper. He fires and maneuvers with this squad and performs all of the duties of the standard rifleman. The SDM has neither the equipment nor training to operate individually or in a small team to engage targets at extended ranges with precision fire.

The secondary mission of the SDM is to engage key targets from 100 to 550 meters with effective, well-aimed fires using the standard weapon system and standard ammunition. He may or may not be equipped with an optic. Therefore the SDM must possess a thorough understanding and master of the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship as well as ballistics, elevation and windage hold-off, sight manipulation, and range estimation.

Combatives (Hand-To-Hand Combat)

Students of the Modern Army Combatives course will be expected to return to their unit with this knowledge to assist his/her commander in developing a sustainable Combatives Training Program. This is a very fast paced and physically demanding course. At the completion of this course you will receive a completion certificate.
