The ACTEDS Training Catalog

Transportation and Distribution Management (CP-24)


Training opportunities are designed to provide a progressive competency growth in developing our Army Civilian logisticians. Programs identified in the ACTEDS Plan include formal classroom and on-the-job developmental assignments that align with the Department of Defense (DoD) and Army Human Capital Strategic Plans. The intent of the training opportunities is to focus on growing technically proficient and capable leaders. Many of the programs described in the ACTEDS Plan are designed to develop our logisticians and build their competencies that prepare them for roles and responsibilities in multifunctional, interagency, and joint environments.

CP-24 ACTEDS funded programs are open to all Army CP-17 civilian GS-11s and above and exceptional GS-9s (non-interns) assigned to a CP-13 permanent position unless otherwise stated. All opportunities are competitive; exceptional GS-9s (non-interns), and equivalent Wage grades assigned to a CP-17 permanent position unless otherwise determined. All opportunities are competitive; all applicants must have three (3) years of permanent, full time employment as a Department of the Army (DA) civilian at the time of application. Selections will be determined by the FCR for CP-17.

Commands will not be reimbursed for salaries and personal benefits for training participants or costs incurred through temporary backfill of the vacated position.

ACTEDS Funding is IAW with ACTEDS Funding Strategy and funds are always subject to availability, set forth by HQDA, G-3/5/7.

Civilian Education System (CES)

The Civilian Education System (CES) is the foundation of the Army's leader development program for all Army Civilians, providing progressive and sequential education courses throughout their careers. CES is centrally funded by HQDA G-37/Training Directorate for most permanent Army Civilians, including but not limited to general schedule (GS), non-appropriated fund (NAF), local national (LN) and wage grade (WG) employees. CES leadership courses, or designated equivalent courses, are required for all Army Civilians. Employees should include attendance at the CES course for which they are eligible in their Individual Development Plans (IDP).

Employees are eligible to attend the CES course that is targeted at their grade level. GS-01 through GS-09 employees are eligible to attend the CES Basic Course; GS-10 through GS-12 employees are eligible to attend the CES Intermediate Course; and GS-13 through GS-15 employees are eligible to attend the CES Advanced Course. NOTE: All Army Civilians who were hired after 30 September 2006 are required to take the Foundation Course prior to enrolling in either of the CES courses.

More information on CES courses, as well as instructions on how to enroll can be found on the Civilian Training and Leader Development website at
