Who is responsible for certification and qulaification training of Soldiers on non program of records? Is the PM fielding the equipment ultimately responsible? or the gaining commander? who establishes the qualifications?
For Army Programs, AR 700-142, Type Classification, Materiel Release, Fielding, And Transfer, delineates total package fielding responsibilities in paragraphs 5-20 and 5-21. The gaining command and PM should have signed a materiel fielding agreement (MFA) which should have delineated responsibilities by both sides. Also recommend you review AR 350-1, Army Training and Leader Development, especially Chapter 2, Responsibilities, and Paragraphs 6-9 through 6-18 which address New Equipment Training.
