Background: Career Program 36 (CP36) is the Department of Army's civilian Analysis, Modeling and Simulation career program, for training, educating and developing civilian human capital in a systematic fashion. The Program was approved by the Assistant Secretary of the Army {Manpower and Reserve Affairs, (ASAM&RA)} on 15 February 2005. The CP36 Army Civilian Training, Education, and Development Systems (ACTEDS), soon to be updated, was approved 15 April 2006. Analysis, modeling and simulation is pervasive throughout the Army, and is found in the Acquisition, Analysis, Operations, Testing, Training, Experimentation and Intelligence communities.

How to Become a CP36 Participant: Personnel who participate in the CP36 program are assigned to positions that are coded CP36. The duties in these positions are predominantly analysis, modeling and simulation, which qualifies the position for coding as CP36. These positions comprise many job series and make up the CP36 population. A position can be coded CP36 through Civilian Personnel Operation Centers (CPOCs) or via the Simulation Proponent , if requested by the organization. Personnel must be assigned to a CP36 position in order to benefit from career program funded training opportunities. All opportunities are competitive following guidance outlined in the CP36 ACTEDS (soon to be updated).

Education and Training Opportunities:

- Army Modeling and Simulation School
- FY20 Analysis, Modeling and Simulation Course Spreadsheet
- Modeling and Simulation Competency Development Web site (UNDER CONSTRUCTION): The Modeling and Simulation Competency Development Web site matches courses to M&S and Operations Research Competencies, M&S Communities, job series, key word and job roles.
- Academic Degree Training Program: A careerist may be approved to pursue a bachelor's or master's degree program funded by the career program, however, this must be approved by the ASA (M&RA) and must be related to current jobs. A careerist must be assigned to a permanent civilian position for three years before requesting this opportunity.
- Developmental Assignments: These assignments can vary in length from two weeks to 90 days, for the purpose of learning about a new organization, broadening understanding of Army analysis, modeling and simulation, or developing a specific skill or ability in a different analysis, modeling and simulation community. Organizations desiring to host developmental assignments should contact the CP36 staff for additional information.
- Army Greening Assignments: These assignments are intended to provide civilians opportunities to learn more about the operational Army. The National Training Center Right-Seat-Ride Program is a Greening Assignment.

How to Request Training: Training is requested through each organization's supervisory chain and forwarded to the CP36 staff for approval. After approval, the Resource Allocation Selection System (RASS) is used to prepare the request for training (SF182) and the Defense Travel System (DTS) is used to prepare the DD1610 for travel, if travel is required for training. The CP36 staff will establish a profile in RASS for each person approved for training. This is required for RASS access. DTS access is granted by designated personnel within organizations.
