Please join us in congratulating Ms. Veronica (Ronnie) Gour on her graduation from the #CP26 Apprentice Program! Please see below for Ronnie's reflection on her time as an Apprentice.
"I completed my Apprenticeship at HQ U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), G-8, in the Manpower and Force Analysis Directorate (MFAD). Over the past two years I have had several opportunities at HQ TRADOC, including attending the American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC) Professional Development Institute (PDI) 2019 in San Antonio, contributing to a published article about COVID-19 in the ASMC journal, developing relationships with several amazing mentors, and being the first TRADOC Apprentice to work on a rotation with the HQ TRADOC Command Group. Through Career Program 26, I was able to complete several trainings with the Army Force Management School, Army Financial Management School, and Syracuse University. I went on rotations with HQ TRADOC’s G-8’s Manpower and Force Analysis Directorate (MFAD), Strategic Initiatives Group (SIG), Budget (BUD), and the HQ TRADOC Office of the Deputy Commanding General (ODCG).
Several important lessons I learned as an Apprentice were to ask questions, to find and foster a relationship with a mentor, network as much as possible, try different types of work, and rely on my support network. I also learned to share my skill strengths early on with my leadership and to not be afraid to take on tasks that would aid in improving my skill weaknesses. I enjoyed many moments of my Apprenticeship, but the experience I found to be the most valuable and memorable was my rotation with the ODCG. Before starting the rotation, I was feeling very apprehensive about working in such a high visibility environment, however, I quickly saw that TRADOC Senior leadership truly believes in the value of Apprentices and Interns, as they made me feel comfortable and welcomed. Working for the DCG gave me the opportunity to learn how command operations work, broadened my experience of working with military personnel, and taught me that I can take on more than I think.
After graduating from the program, I will be working in HQ TRADOC’s G-8’s MFAD. I am grateful for all the program has taught me, for all the mentors and co-workers who took me under their wing, and for my leadership who gave me opportunities to learn and grow. I am very happy to begin this new chapter in my career and look forward to what’s to come!"
Congratulations again, Ronnie!

U.S. Army Civilian Career Management Activity - ACCMA

Earlier this month, the Army established the U.S. Army Civilian Career Management Activity - ACCMA under the Civilian Human Resources Agency, and realigned career management teams, including #CP26, to ACCMA. ACCMA will be responsible for enterprise-wide talent management processes to acquire, develop, employ and retain Army Civilian talent.

We will continue to provide you quality career management support as a part of ACCMA. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

The CP26 team is still at your disposal and now, as part of ACCMA, we have access to additional technical expertise and other resources to support you and your commands and organizations.

The ACCMA ribbon cutting ceremony took place on 1 October 2020 at Fort Belvoir, and was hosted by LTG Gary Brito, DCS, G-1. We are sharing it because we believe you will find the remarks from senior executive leaders on transforming Civilian career management and why ACCMA was established helpful.

Please join us in congratulating Ms. Katie Egbert for graduating the #CP26 Apprentice Program! See below for Katie's reflection on her time as an Apprentice.
"I completed my Apprenticeship at the Pentagon with the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-1, in the Career Program 26 Proponency Office. I was afforded the opportunity to train at Army Logistics University, the Army Force Management School, the Army Financial Management School, and the Defense Resource Management Institute. The subject-matter experts at these first-class institutions provided me with invaluable experiences and lessons that I will take with me for the rest of my career. I am also thankful to have had the opportunity to partake in developmental assignments with USAMAA, HQDA DCS G-9, and TRADOC G-8. Each of which presented me with different perspectives on the important work our Army does every day.
During my time as an Apprentice I wore many hats, each of which helped prepare me for my current of managing Career Program 26's Apprentice Program. My favorite experience in the last two years came at AUSA 2019, where I moderated a panel with Mr. Roy Wallace, Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff, G-1, and Mr. Wesley C. Miller, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Financial Operations), Functional Chief Representatives for Career Programs 26 and 11, respectively.
I am so thankful to have been selected for this opportunity, and I am excited to continue to work in Career Program Management to support Civilians across the Army footprint."
Congratulations again, Katie! #CP26ApprenticeGraduation

Please join us in congratulating Mr. Joseph Tremont for graduating the #CP26 Apprentice Program!
Joseph Tremont joined the CP26 Operations Research Systems Analyst (1515) apprenticeship in September 2018 and graduates today. He joined Army Contracting Command – Rock Island (ACC-RI) in Rock Island, IL as part of the data analytics team which studies current manpower effectiveness, predicts future manpower requirements, and creates tools/reports to assist the contracting teams located there. ACC-RI is responsible for supplying the Army with ammo, base services, etc. via contracts with private companies and the efficient execution of those contracts is vital to keeping the soldiers fed, supplied, and ready to serve.
Mr. Tremont’s apprenticeship was highlighted by his 14 week training course, Operations Research Systems Analyst – Military Applications Course (ORSA MAC), in Ft. Lee, VA. He is pictured with his fellow graduates, second from the right. There he learned all the tools available to provide meaningful analysis and optimization in the industry. The ORSA MAC experience culminates in a 3-4 week capstone project where senior leaders from the Pentagon visit and the team presents their analysis and recommendation of some hypothetical problem the Army has. Mr. Tremont used the skills acquired in the course to create tools that simplify and streamline the tasks of workers at ACC-RI, sometimes reducing the time to execute by up to 15,000%.
Congratulations again Joseph! #CP26ApprenticeGraduation

Our Story

Career Program 26, one of the Army’s centrally managed civilian career programs, is composed primarily of Management Analysts (occupational series 0343) who work in one or more of the nine manpower and force management functional areas. Because of this functional diversity, CP26 analysts work in a variety of organizations such as resource management, plans and training, documentation, and management engineering at installations and major commands across the Army.
