ETQC Training Advisory 002-23, Processing FY23 A/C School and Accession Course TDY Orders
As a reminder, FORCECOM continues to permit local units to manage the administration of FY23 "C" school, “A” school and Accession (e.g. DCO, OCS, DEPOT) course TDY orders to include initiation of the travel authorization, funds certification, and AO approval. These instructions do not apply to PCS orders to the subject schools or orders issued at no cost, including no cost orders to Reservists. Reservists in receipt of no cost school orders must contact their benefiting unit and/or District (dxr) to obtain funding and applicable orders (including POET information), to attend formal “A”, “C” and Accession school training.

ETQC Training Advisory 009-22, FY23 "C" School Schedule, ETR Submission Process, and Unit Responsibilities
Effective 15 Sep 2022, the complete FY23 “C” school schedule has been entered in Direct Access (DA). Available FY23 sessions are listed on the “Training” page of the Education and Training Quota Management Command (ETQC) Portal site by clicking on “C" School Course Schedule or Course Description Catalog. Unit Training Officers (UTOs) can submit electronic training requests (ETRs) for all FY23 course sessions listed in DA and should submit requests as soon as a training requirement is identified and the unit can accommodate the member attending.

ETQC Training Advisory 008-22, Processing FY23 C School, A School and Accession Course TDY Orders
The successful implementation of practices discussed in reference (a), eliminated the challenges members were experiencing with Direct Access (DA) generated training administration system (TAS) orders. Due to this success, FORCECOM will continue the practice of permitting local units to manage the administration of FY23 "C" school TDY orders to include initiation of the authorization, funds certification, and AO approval. Maintaining uniformity in FORCECOM business processes, at the start of FY23, these instructions will also apply to both Accession (e.g. DCO, OCS, DEPOT) and “A” school TDY orders. These instructions do not apply to PCS orders to the subject schools.

ETQC Training Advisory 007-22 Processing "C" School Travel Orders and Vouchers for the Remainder of FY-2022
FORCECOM is continuing to experience multiple issues with Direct Access (DA) generated training administration system (TAS) orders. These issues have forced a change to the “C” school business processes for the remainder of FY22 to ensure students are able to travel without or with minimal manual intervention from SATO and the FC travel adjustment team. Current “C” school processes are unsustainable while ensuring timely obligation and vouchering. FORCECOM is sending the administration of orders to the local unit for initiation of the authorization, funds certification, and AO approval.

ETQC Training Advisory 005-22, Guidance for A and C School Travelers and Command Representatives
Direct Access (DA) Training Administration System (TAS) has been reactivated following the successful conversion of Financial Systems Modernization Solution (FSMS) accounting data for FY22 "A" & "C" School orders. Although the system is online, the interface between DA, FSMS, and ETS is experiencing unforeseen complications in the processing of "A" & "C" School orders.
