The AMEDD Enlisted Corps is comprised of twenty-four military occupational skills and twelve additional skill identifiers, making it one of the most diverse and complex Corps in the Army. Charged not only with defending our Country, but also providing top quality health care for all men and women in uniform from all Services. The job of the AMEDD Soldier is constant.
Training With Industry (TWI)
- The Training with Industry (TWI) Program was established for military personnel to provide training and/or development of skills in U.S. private sector procedures and practices not available through existing military or advanced civilian schooling programs or other established training and education programs. Boards are held through HRC at the Proponent level. EN members selected to participate in the TWI program receive training, for a duration between 6 months and 1 year, in the civilian sector and serve in positions that require interaction with the private sector on a routine basis. The skills obtained must be applicable to the EN member`s immediate follow-on assignment.
- Contacts with commercial and industrial institutions to secure training under the TWI Program will be made by the HQDA proponent or HRC (AHRC-OPL-L) as required. TWI can be referenced in AR 621-1 Chapter 6 and on the HRC website at https://www.hrc.army.mil/EPMD/NCOs%20Broadening%20Program. This program is offered on a limited basis.
