Army G-1 / M&RA LSS Training

The Army G-1 / M&RA offers a wide variety of LSS training opportunities. Classes range from four hour familiarization training sessions to four week long Black Belt classes held over the course of four months. Although their levels of commitment vary, each type of training is essential to the success of the G-1 / M&RA LSS deployment.

Who Is Eligible

Both military and civilians within the G-1 / M&RA are encouraged to utilize the G-1 / M&RA LSS training resources. Personnel outside of these two agencies should contact their agency's LSS Deployment Director (or DUSA-BT) to inquire about LSS training opportunities within their organization and around the Army. Contractors are not permitted to attend the G-1 / M&RA LSS Green Belt, Black Belt, or Master Black Belt training.

What Is The Cost

Training is offered at no cost to the individual or their directorate. It is strongly encouraged that individuals take advantage of this opportunity to improve their daily work environment and further their careers.
