A training strategy that integrates resources with the instruction and training of individual and collective skills is necessary to carry out a unit's wartime mission. TRADOC institutions, such as the noncommissioned officers education system (NCOES), and units implement overall training strategies for the MK 19. This multifaceted approach includes specific plans for using resources such as publications, ranges, ammunition, training aids, devices, simulators, and simulations. These specific strategies develop critical soldier skills and training tasks, as well as leader skills needed to support the intended outcome (see Appendix A, Training Strategy, for more details).
