Preliminary subjects include discussion on the weapons’ capabilities, mechanical training, and the fundamentals and principles of rifle marksmanship. Live-fire applications are scheduled after the soldier has demonstrated preliminary skills. The proponent of this publication is the U.

This chapter provides a proven rifle marksmanship training strategy as guidance in establishing and conducting an effective training program. The strategy consists of the progressive individual training periods taught during initial entry training IET.
It progresses into advanced skills and concludes with advanced reading material. Refresher training need only be conducted on periods that are deemed necessary. The proficiency attained by a soldier depends on proper training and application of the basic marksmanship fundamentals. During initial marksmanship training, emphasis is on learning the firing fundamentals, which are taught in four phases-preliminary rifle instruction, downrange feedback, field firing, and advanced firing exercises.
This prepares soldiers for advanced optic and laser training for combat-type collective exercises and real world deployments. The following marksmanship training guide contains the current tasks that are trained in basic rifle marksmanship programs, during basic combat training at Army training centers ATCsand during infantry one-station unit training OSUT. It provides a basis for structuring unit sustainment programs. The unit normally performs a diagnostic test of the tasks and only conducts training on specific periods for soldiers who must improve their basic firing skills.

Training is usually conducted in a shorter time frame than at IET. FM stresses marksmanship as a paramount soldier skill.
The basic firing skills and exercises outlined in this manual must be part of every unit’s marksmanship training program. Unit commanders must focus their basic and advanced marksmanship training programs to support their respective mission-essential task list METL.
The overall training strategy is multifaceted and includes supporting strategies that use resources such as publications, ranges, ammunition, FM These strategies focus on developing the critical soldier and leader skills required for success in combat. Two primary components form the training strategy: Both may include individual and collective skills. Initial training must be taught correctly the first time. A task taught correctly and learned well is retained longer and skills can be sustained.
However, an individual or unit eventually loses skill proficiency. This learning decay depends on many factors such as the difficulty and complexity of the task. Personnel turnover is a main factor in decay of collective skills, since the loss of critical team members requires retraining to regain proficiency. If a long period elapses between initial and sustainment sessions or training doctrine is altered retraining may be required. The riflle strategy for basic rifle marksmanship begins in IET and continues in the unit.
An example of this overall process is markmanship in Figure and provides a concept of the flow of unit sustainment training.
IET provides field units soldiers who have been trained and who have demonstrated proficiency to standard in basic rifle marksmanship. The soldier graduating from these courses has been trained to maintain the rifle and hit a point target. He has learned to apply the four marksmanship fundamentals, and other skills needed to engage a target.
Target types and scenarios of increasing difficulty must be mastered to develop proficiency. This evaluation also provides an overview of training effectiveness. Training continues in units using the basic skills taught in IET.
