THE ARMY CIVILIAN TRAINING, EDUCATION, AND DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM

Frank Oliva

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

The Army Civilian Training, Education, and Development System (ACTEDS) is a system that ensures planned development of civilian members through a blending of progressive and sequential work assignments, formal training, and self-development for individuals as they progress from entry level to key positions. Approved as a concept in 1983 by the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel, the goals of ACTEDS are to assure proper training of civilians, develop leaders, and sustain a quality force.

ACTEDS plans are developed for specific occupations. The ACTEDS Plan for the Army Civilian Career Program for Engineers and Scientists provides a sequential, progressive and systematic approach to technical, professional, and leadership training similar to the system used by the military. At each stage of the employee’s career, the plan provides career guidance on training and developmental assignments which are designed to improve job performance and build qualifications for advancement to key positions.

ACTEDS focuses heavily on professional and leadership development and contains all of the core leadership curriculum developed by Headquarters, Department of the Army (HQDA) as well as specific training and developmental assignments. The Department of the Army places a high priority on requirements identified in ACTEDS Plans and centrally resources the core leadership curriculum. This includes training such as Intern Leadership Development, Organizational Leadership for Executives, Personnel Management for Executives, Army Management Staff College, Senior Service Colleges and University Programs.

Attached is the master training plans for the Chief and Assistant Chief of Construction under ACTEDS.
