Unit Training

Annual FAP Command Briefing
FAP facilitates the annual deskside briefing IAW AR 608-18 to all levels of command and senior NCO advisers.  Personnel are required to complete the briefing within 90 days of assuming command or responsibility and annually thereafter.  The briefing covers the installation policy which addresses family violence, command responsibility, local trends, and available resources.  To schedule a briefing, command teams should contact FAP at (270) 412-5500.

Annual FAP Troop Training
The annual training is required for all Soldiers IAW AR 608-18.  This one hour training is scheduled with command and facilitated at Brigade, Battalion, or Company level.  Through this training Soldiers are informed of services available through FAP, the dynamics of family violence, reporting procedures for abuse, and the installation’s policy regarding domestic violence and child abuse.

The intent is to assist Soldiers and Families in resolving problems before they become a crisis and interfere in the mission. A few of the topics include effective communication, services available and shared experiences. Scheduled through interested companies. Classes are kept to 25 NCOs or less.
