DLS Program Components

+ Digital Training Facilities (DTFs):

  • DTFs provide Soldiers with an on-base location to access web-based, job related and professional courses away from the workplace and distractions of home.  DTFs include networked computers that support CD-ROM based training, Video Tele-training equipment to support room based courseware transmission from remote sites, computer servers to support the network and provide a high-speed gateway from the classroom to Army intranets and the internet.  DLS manages the DTFs worldwide from the Enterprise Management Center (EMC) at Fort Eustis, VA.

+ Mobile Digital Training Facility (MDTF):

  • A Mobile DTFs is a preplanned product improvement (P3I) of the existing DTF design.  The MDTFs provide a transportable capability and feature 10 laptops,  video teletraining/video conferencing, and 2 ruggedized cases for storage/shipment.  The MDTFs are designed to be connected to the unit's local area network for use wherever and whenever access to distributed learning is needed. 

+ Deployed Digital Training Campus (DDTC):

  • DDTC is a portable, Warrior Information Training System, which can be setup at any deployed Soldier location around the world. The training campus is a completely self-contained system with 20 laptops, Internet and satellite accessibility. The system can also provide video tele-training and it is designed for Soldiers to conduct structured self development courses, advanced leader course phase one common core, correspondence courses, and any other program in the Army e-Learning catalog and the Army Learning Management System (ALMS). Each DDTC system is able to help Soldiers train and stay competitive for promotion with their garrison peers while they're at deployed destinations.

+ Enterprise Management Center (EMC):

  • The EMC is the core of the second Increment of the Army's evolutionary acquisition strategy to support Army training.  The EMC is the technology and communications focal point for the program. The EMC is the key enabler in the implementation of the globally distributed but centrally managed enterprise system.

+ The Army Learning Management System (ALMS):

  • The ALMS is the Army-approved, centrally-managed and funded system for training management. The ALMS streamlines, consolidates, and provides overall direction to the Army's training processes. It builds upon DLS's supporting infrastructure and utilizes DoD-managed common user networks to implement a comprehensive, automated system for administering Army training throughout the Force. The ALMS can manage a student's training activities from initial entry and continue throughout his/her service. The ALMS provides course and training resource management, scheduling and registration functions, courseware distribution, delivery, and storage, learning collaboration, and permanent record keeping of training activities and results.

+ Army e-Learning:

  • Provides free training for every Active Army, National Guard, Reservist, ROTC Cadet (MS III/IV) and Department of the Army Civilian.  The 3,500+ commercial web-based information technology, business, leadership, and personal development courses are accessible 24x7 from anywhere using an internet connection.
