HRC Army

The Human Resources Center (HRC) is the central point of contact for all Army recruitment efforts. Whether you are a new recruit or a veteran, HRC helps you prepare your application and make sure you meet the Army’s criteria. Learn more about the HRC process. There are several different components to the application process. These components include the Special Duty Interest Preferences (SDIP), Rank History for grades PV2 through CSM, Medical Retention Board (MMRB) determination, and Assignment preference.

Special Duty Interest Preferences

Currently, Soldiers can use the Special Duty Interest Preferences (SDIP) system to request certain assignments. The Army uses the preferences to determine a Soldier’s next assignment. They can select up to six locations. Three of these locations can be in the CONUS and one can be in the OCONUS. Additionally, Soldiers can indicate their preference for certain special duties or specific locations. While these preferences do not guarantee a Soldier a particular assignment, they do help them to set realistic expectations for themselves.

Currently, soldiers are required to have a GT score of 100 or greater to be considered for HRC, but before 2007, a commander can waive this requirement to ninety-five if the applicant has demonstrated superior leadership skills. This waiver request process will still be open to soldiers who have completed college degrees and have leadership experience. But soldiers who are still in school are more likely to be considered for a waiver request.

Rank history in the grade of PV2 thru CSM

Rank history in the grade of PV2 through CSM can be updated using the PSB (Promotion Subordinate Branch). The date of birth is also updated with the PSB. The format of the date of birth is YYYYMMDD. To update the date of birth, fill in DA Form 4187. The supporting documents include your social security card. AR 40-501 contains more information.

Medical Retention Board (MMRB) determination

When a Soldier is recommended for reclassification, a change in specialty code, or worldwide deployment, the MMRB will make its determination. The board will also evaluate the Soldier’s past and present job performance, military and civilian training, and Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) scores. It will then recommend the appropriate action office. The decision made by the board is binding on all parties.

The MMRB is convened by the convening authority. The MMRB consists of the president, the medical officer, and the board recorder. The board also has a personnel adviser and a retention adviser. The board’s primary task is to evaluate the Soldier’s profile limitations in a worldwide field environment. It also evaluates his performance in a specific MOS, including his physical demands.

The military has a physical performance evaluation system that evaluates the performance of Soldiers in austere environments. This system establishes a medical retention board (MMRB) for Soldiers in these environments. The Board also makes recommendations based on a Soldier’s primary MOS, as well as their ability to perform their primary MOS. The board’s determinations must be documented and must be consistent with the Soldier’s VASRD.

Once the MMRB determines that a Soldier does not meet medical retention standards, the convening authority must make a decision. The board can recommend reclassification or a change in specialty code. It can also recommend a Soldier be released. However, if a Soldier’s medical condition does not prevent him from performing the physical requirements of a worldwide field environment, a reclassification or discharge is not appropriate.

Assignment preferences

If you’ve ever been confused about where to begin with the Army’s new online application for assignments, don’t be. First, you must submit your assignment preferences. These will be used to determine where you should be assigned. You need to submit a maximum of six locations. You should select three CONUS locations, one CONUS location and three OCONUS locations. You can also indicate special duty interests, such as Recruiting, Drill Sergeant, or Airborne. Assignment volunteers will be given priority over non-volunteers. In addition, you can choose your preferred assignments from the Asg Loc List A.

To use this feature, you must have an account on the Army Knowledge Online (AKO) portal. Click on the ASK key below to learn more. Once you’ve set up your account, click on the ASK key to submit your army assignment preferences. If you don’t already have an account, you can establish one by visiting the AKO portal. Alternatively, you can contact your drill sergeant to ask them about the available assignment preferences.

Active component soldiers’ assignment preferences are determined by their ASK system preferences. Career managers work with AGR soldiers to rank them and to prefer their available positions. During this process, HRC contacts their NCOs (E-6 to E-8) to discuss their preferred assignment types. In the future, new systems and tools will enable NCOs to receive information directly from assignment managers, such as information about ideal assignment types. And, the program will be available to AGR soldiers as well.

Language proficiency

If you have a foreign language skill, you can earn the Foreign Language Proficiency Bonus pay, or FLPP, as the federal government calls it. This extra pay is available to both active duty soldiers and National Guard soldiers who are proficient in at least one language on Payment List A. To qualify for FLPP, your MOS, branch, and CMF must be listed on AR 11-6. In addition, linguists should also have a foreign area officer designation (FA 48) as their primary FA designator.

The Foreign Language Proficiency test requires service members to have at least a basic level of proficiency in two languages. In addition to reading and speaking, service members must be proficient in two modalities of communication: listening and speaking. While reading and speaking are the most important skills to have for the Foreign Language Proficiency test, there are additional tests you may have to take to prove your language abilities. To prepare for the Foreign Language Proficiency test, you should take a mock examination or take a class at an English language institute.

The Army also requires candidates with language skills to pass an ETP. In addition, candidates with an ASI may request an ETP regardless of the MOS vacancy they’re applying for. However, applicants should note that not all ETPs will be considered favorably. Therefore, it’s crucial to understand the eligibility requirements for each MOS. In addition to the language tests, you should also learn how to read military documents.

Once you’ve finished the military, you may continue your career as an interpreter in private companies or government agencies. There is high demand for bilingual professionals in the business world, especially in the field of education. Also, bilingual people may be suitable for leadership positions. The Army’s PaYS program is one recruitment option for people with a dual language skill. Partner companies with this program include Lockheed Martin, AAI Corporation, URS, and General Dynamics Land Systems.
