The Board Master - Army Promotion Board Study Guide

What schools can be entered onto my ERB and which ones count towards promotion points?

I recently finished the Military Transition Team course. Can it be entered onto my ERB and does it count towards promotion points?

The Board Master - Army Promotion Board Study Guide

Not all resident courses can be entered onto the ERB and not all courses that can be entered onto the ERB count towards promotion points. The Military Transition Tream training for example can be entered onto the ERB, but does not count towards points. Only courses with course codes can be entered onto the ERB. Attached is a list of resident courses, the far right column of the eligibility list will tell you if they are valid for points or not.

To ensure you are looking at the correct course, please find your course on the Course Code List first, then check for promotion point eligibility on the Course Promotion Point Eligibility roster.

    Can a DA Form 87 be signed by the Battalion Master Driver (not a O5 or civilian equivalent) and be used as promotion points if the S1 accepts it i.g. Forklift Operator Course, Generator Operator Course? If not, can you please educate me on the regulatory guidance?
