All EIB Board Members, NCOICs, and Graders should be familiar with Chapters 1-8.
This book is much shorter than the old manual and does not have to be printed in color. We highly recommend that you print the entire manual rather than cutting and pasting to create a Candidate/Grader book. This will prevent mistakes and discrepancies between the various versions and the original.
Do not alter the wording of this document with the exception of completing the highlighted information specific to your unit.
EIB Test Manager Validation will be conducted a week before training and will be over a 5 day period. Test Manager validation takes a minimum of three days to conduct. This needs to be reflected on your requesting memo. This time line may be adjusted with written approval. The LOA will include travel and validation days.
Once the Testing Memo has been approved by OCOI; units will receive a memo from the EIB Program Manager. The memo will have dates for the approved testing; identify the conditional approval requirements that must be met to receive certificates and orders once testing is completed.
If you are submitting a waiver for ALT C, the following requirements apply:
ALT C is meant to extend an individual's qualification when they legitimately do not have access to an ARF range; it is not meant to replace the standard qualification procedure.
You must have one sworn statement per Battalion represented. They must be filled out completely and correctly.
While the order of events on this schedule is flexible, all tasks must be completed in order to be validated.
These items must be up to date, or verifying paperwork will be stapled to the Record Brief. Record briefs that are not up to date will be the exception rather than the rule and must be briefed to the EIB Program Manager in advance.
The testing Unit may require additional packet items, but OCOI will validate the BN CDR's Sworn Statements (one per BN), the ERB/ORB/SRB (one per Candidate), and the Unit Tracker Spreadsheet (must be complete at the end of Validation).
We will go over this spreadsheet and roster during your validation; ensure the roster is complete prior to our arrival. Its use is mandatory and after you have been validated, no more Candidates can be added to the roster. At the end of each testing day, you must submit this document to the EIB Test Manager and you must include the final version along with the Final Orders Roster spreadsheet and President of the Board Sworn Statement upon completion.
It is highly recommended to use this during your practice week as well.
The Candidates will carry this with them during Lane Testing as a summary of their progress. It will not be used for grading or tracking purposes. It must be collected at the end of each day.
This document replaces the old Individual Scorecards at each station. It can be modified as necessary. This is a controlled item and must only be filled out by the graders at that specific station. They will all be collected at the end of each day and reconciled with the Unit Tracker.
You must fill out all information completely and correctly in order to receive your orders and certificates and submit this file along with your completed Unit Tracker spreadsheet (under STEP 3).
If you are using the Unit Tracker with Auto-Populate, all this information is included.
This is embedded in the third tab of the EIB Tracker, but can also be printed and filled out by hand.
Ensure to address the areas outlined in the template. Provide your unit and contact information.
YOUR unit is responsible for updating the OMPF of ALL candidates who earn the EIB
