Are There Any Rules for Administering Corrective Training?

  • The corrective training must be directly related to the deficiency.
  • The corrective training must be oriented to improve the Soldier’s substandard performance.
  • The corrective training may take place during normal duty hours or after normal duty hours.
  • The corrective training cannot be used as punishment.
  • The corrective training must not be used as a punishment to avoid the procedural safeguards of Article 15, UCMJ.
  • The corrective training should continue only until the substandard performance or training deficiency is corrected or overcome.
  • The corrective training must not be designed to demean or embarrass the Soldier.
  • The corrective training must be performed with the proper tools and resources.
  • The method in which the corrective training is executed must not be ridiculous.


A Soldier failed to properly clean the latrine one morning and you decided the corrective training would be to clean the latrine floor with a toothbrush. This could be considered ridiculous. The Soldier should be afforded the opportunity to perform the task with the normal tools they would normally have on hand.
