3 PREFACE Leadership, Command and Staff, and other professional training have historically been conducted in schools run by higher commands. Our units rarely have sufficient time to cover METL driven training at our short drills. Training in Common Tasks for personnel with limited or no military experience is an additional load. The TNSG Academy was instituted in an effort to provide resources for Professional Development Training to the Tennessee State Guard. Most courses are primarily in two : (a) Training Support Packages to be used in classroom settings with instructors along with guided readings to be completed at home. (b) A practical Application Phase with students preparing, presenting, and evaluating lesson presentations under the guidance of instructors It is not the expressed purpose of this program to direct Battalion Commanders or to order mandatory participation by any personnel. The program was started to provide training resources for these same commanders that would allow professional development training outside of an already busy training schedule. The model of utilization will be small group specialized instruction in a formal school setting at Division level. All of the materials used in this course are identical with U.S. Army training materials. However, TNSG personnel are not authorized to take the U.S. Army final exams and therefore cannot receive credit from the originating Army Training Commands. A system should be set up to allow accreditation at our own level. i
