  About the ID&R Curriculum
  The curriculum design provides a framework for recruiter development and progression along a continuum. Modules have been divided into three levels – basic, intermediate, and advanced. Basic modules are designed primarily to introduce the MEP to new recruiters. Intermediate modules are most suited for recruiters with one to five years of experience wishing to learn more advanced concepts and skills. Advanced modules are designed to introduce veteran recruiters with more than five years of recruiting experience to more advanced concepts and help prepare them to take on a larger leadership role in the MEP. However, veteran recruiters will also find basic and intermediate modules useful as refresher training.
  We hope that these materials will serve to support your ID&R Training efforts.
  Please click on the “Curriculum Guide” link to find out more about how to use the curriculum.
  Note: The materials for each Module are contained within compressed files. If your computer is not equipped with the software needed to unzip the files, you will need to install the necessary software before downloading the modules.
