Personnel & Organizational
The overarching goal of the Personnel & Organizational Readiness Battalion (PORB) is to improve unit readiness by providing full-time National Guard personnel in the fields of human resources and readiness with the essential knowledge and tools needed to do their jobs in the most effective manner possible. The course offerings are a result of feedback from the 54 States and Territories and the NGB Office of Primary Responsibility (G1/G3). PORB gives Soldiers current and relevant information that prepares them for duty at home and abroad.
Sustainment, Installations &
While their focus is three-fold, the Installations, Sustainment, Installations & Environmental Battalion (SIEB) has only one mission, which centers on enhancing unit readiness and maximizing resources for the Army National Guard. SIEB continues to serve as the leader of strategic change for the ILE community by training approximately 12,000 students a year. SIEB helps ensure the movement of the materials and resources necessary to get any mission done, regardless of size. In this day and age, the standard is to accomplish this task in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way.
Cyber & Information
Advantage Battalion (CIAB)
CIAB’s mission is to provide relevant training and educational assistance to all National Guard IT Professionals while fostering professional relationships. The CIAB provides functional training in critical automation domains such as network engineering, server administration, network security and database administration.
Strategy & Leader
Development Institute (SLDI)
SLDI’s mission is to assist the leaders of all organizations in improving the effectiveness, productivity and readiness of the National Guard. Their vision is to be the National Guard provider of choice for Process, Behavior and Organization (PB&O) improvement. Their purpose is to integrate and support the execution of National Guard quality policies, programs and doctrine into PB&O.
As the ARNG transforms from a requirements oriented culture to a cost oriented culture, an enterprise mindset must be adopted so the ARNG acts as a single entity. This will focus our energy on what are the best business processes ensuring the ARNG provides mission-ready units in support of the National Military Strategy. Education and training delivered by the Resource Management Training Battalion will empower the ARNG to adopt a cost management culture supporting a fully mission capable readiness posture throughout the ARNG.
Training the ARNG Recruiting and Retention Command is the primary responsibility of SMTB. All training is compliant with current TRADOC guidance and utilizes the Training Development Capability (TDC) for course development. SMTB is fully accredited by Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC). The SMTB trains the Army National Guard Recruiting and Retention Force encompassing recruiting, retention and attrition management. In addition to qualification training, the Strength Maintenance Training Battalion is the only active duty NCO Academy in the Army National Guard.
