Downloading Training

  • You will be assigned one of the five Training instances (Training 1, Training 2, 3, 4, or Training 5). 

  • Download Training from the Download Apps page.

  • Training instances are reset at 2000 MT each Friday. The reset removes the data from the week and sets it back to the base data.

  • Notify the ROSS Training SME egreycloud@fs.fed.us (link sends e-mail) to postpone the reset if your session spans a Friday night.

    The Data

  • Each Training instance contains data to support the scenarios in the ROSS, D310 and California training scenarios.

  • Data may also be used for other training.

  • Please forward any data issues to Beth Grey Cloud at egreycloud@fs.fed.us (link sends e-mail).

    Usernames
    Training usernames are generic and identified in each training's courseware.

    Passwords

  • You will not have access to the training server until you are assigned a password.

  • Each Training instance has a new password generated every Friday.

  • The password works for every user account in that Training instance.

  • Training passwords cannot be changed or locked up. 

  • Course Coordinators will receive the password the Monday of their session.

    THE PRACTICE SERVER

    Scheduled use of the Practice server (drills, practice etc.) should be scheduled with the ROSS training SME to ensure Practice is available during your session.

    User Names and Passwords

  • Access to the Practice server requires a NAP account. Students must go through the normal process of requesting a NAP account.

  • It is the responsibility of the cadre to give students access to the ROSS Practice server as needed.
