During the 3rd week of December 2010 ATL provided four days of soil, concrete, and asphalt training for an Engineering Brigade of the US Army Reserve at our Albany facility.
The soldiers will be charged with QA/QC for construction projects in Afghanistan and are scheduled to be deployed in early 2011. For some of them it will be their second tour of duty.
The instructors and trainers, including Judy Ames, Brian Barnes, Bob Field, Scott McCasland, Steve Moore, Jim Scancarello, Adam Schneider, and Chris Ward, noted that it was an enjoyable and rewarding experience and that the presented materials can be used for a variety of other internal training programs in the future.
The soldiers were very enthusiastic students and indicated the knowledge they gained and skills they developed will be very useful in maintaining quality construction.
