Army Career Tracker
Army Career Tracker (ACT) is a leadership development tool that integrates
training and education into one personalized, easy-to-use website. Users can
search multiple education and training resources, monitor their career
development and receive personalized advice from their leadership. First
implemented for enlisted Soldiers, ACT expanded to officers and Army Civilians
in the fall of 2011. All Career Programs - in addition to all enlisted and
officer career management fields (of all active and Reserve components) - are
scheduled to be in ACT by the end of 2012.
ACT allows users to:
- View career related data in one online portal;
- Examine personalized professional development models or career maps;
- Receive recommendations from leaders, mentors and/or supervisors;
- Identify the operational/functional, institutional and leader development
requirements in alignment with organizational mission and for progression in a
professional career field; and
- Plan new activities designed to reach professional and personal goals.
ACT offers a roadmap to help Civilians determine what they have to do to
reach the highest levels in their career programs so they can put a plan in
place to reach their goals.
Employees are encouraged to access ACT at least monthly to communicate with
their leaders, supervisors and mentors about career development goals and obtain
the latest news and information tailored to their career program and individual
needs. Users are also expected to use ACT to create and track their personal and
professional career development goals. Users can search multiple education and
training resources, monitor their career development and receive personalized
advice from their leaders.
The system allows Civilian and military supervisors and mentors to monitor
their employees' goals and provide them developmental recommendations,
notifications and career advice. Supervisors will be able to view records for
both their Civilian and military employees. In addition, those Civilians who are
also part-time in uniform are able to view both their military and Civilian
records through the one system.
Part of the 2011 Army Campaign Plan, Army Learning Concept 2015 (ALC 2015)
and the Civilian Workforce Transformation Initiatives, Army Career Tracker is
managed by the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. The system leverages
seven existing Army systems to capture and present career management data; it
does not replace or eliminate current systems and programs.

effectively take ownership of your own development.
A successful career always requires active career management
and the best person to manager your career is you.
No one else has as much at stake in the outcome of your career decisions,
and no one else will work as hard to ensure success.”
