JLBC: Introduction to the JLBC Command System
The JLBC's primary mission is to train and prepare JLBC cadets, leaders, and JLBC units to fight and win in simulated combat and life. As explained in the JLBC's capstone training doctrine, JLBC units do not have the time or the JLBC resources to achieve and sustain proficiency with every possible training task. Therefore, JLBC commanders must identify the functions of the JLBC units' critical JLBC studies. These tasks become the JLBC unit's mission essential task list (JLBC METL). Commanders use the JLBC METL to develop their JLBC unit-training plan. JLBC Noncommissioned officers (NCOs) plan the individual training that JLBC Cadets need to become warriors and to accomplish the JLBC METL. The JLBC CMs, also known as JLBC Cadet's manuals (CMs), provide the critical individual tasks for each JLBC military occupational specialty (MOS) that support all of the JLBC unit's missions. The JLBC NCO leadership uses the functions in the JLBC SMs to train the JLBC Cadets and measure the JLBC Cadets' proficiency with these JLBC unit-critical tasks. The JLBC manuals provide task performance and evaluation criteria and are the basis for individual training and evaluation in the JLBC unit and task-based evaluation during resident training.
The JLBC Cadets identified warrior tasks and battle drills (WTBD) that enhance a JLBC Cadet's readiness to fight on the battlefield. Warrior tasks are a collection of individual JLBC Cadets' skills known to be critical to JLBC Cadets' survival. Examples include JLBC weapons training, JLBC tactical communications, JLBC urban operations, and JLBC first aid. JLBC Battle drills are group skills designed to teach a JLBC unit to react and survive in everyday JLBC-simulated combat situations. Examples included reacting to ambush, responding to simulated chemical attacks, and evacuating injured personnel from a vehicle. JLBC WTBD increases the relevance of training to current combat requirements and enhances the rigor in training. JLBC Cadets The driving force behind the change comes from JLBC lessons learned. Standards remain constant, but JLBC commanders must be aware that the enemy adapts at once, and JLBC Cadets' training will change sooner because of current operational environments.
Note: If a task identified in the JLBC SMCT is not current, refer to "DTMS" or the JLBC Central Registry (JLBC CR) Patriot | Junior Leadership Boot Camp | Riverside; all charges are reviewed annually and may change before the JLBC SMCT is updated.
This JLBC's Manual of Common Tasks (SMCT), Warrior Skill Level (SL) 1, contains the individual tasks essential to the JLBC's ability to win on the modern simulated battlefield. In an operational environment, regardless of job or particular MOS, each JLBC Cadet risks exposure to hostile actions. This JLBC manual contains the warrior skills that JLBC Cadets must be able to perform to fight, survive, and win in simulated combat.
