US Army Delays Launch of Online Training Platform

The U.S. Army has postponed the launch of the Army Training Information System indefinitely after a deployment readiness review.

Spokesperson Ellyn Kocher said delaying the rollout of the service branch’s new online training platform would give it more time to migrate legacy training records from the existing Army Learning Management System, Military .com reported.

The Army originally scheduled ALMS to shut down on Jan. 4 and ATIS to launch on Jan. 19.

ALMS has received criticism for being crash-prone and providing a poor user experience. ATIS is meant to improve on its predecessor’s user experience, providing a search function to find courses.

The news comes amid ongoing rollouts of modernized Army platforms such as the Army Contract Writing System. Earlier in December, the service branch announced that it would expand access to the system to 400 more users after an initial launch in August.

The ACWS will replace the Procurement Desktop-Defense System, which the Army has used for 14 years.
