During the last week of September 2017, the RCAS training team supported a classroom event at the D.C. Army National Guard (ARNG) 260th Regional Training Institute on Fort Belvoir, Virginia. RCAS instructor Mr. Steve Longoria joined SFC Marty Phelps, Retirement Points Accounting Management (RPAM) Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO), Maryland ARNG; MSG Jennifer Iudicello, retirement services NCO, National Guard Bureau (NGB); and Ms. Althea Wilson, RCAS personnel applications functional manager, NGB, for the weeklong RPAM training event. There were 24 students in the class from across the country, including Hawaii and Guam.

RPAM is a vital application that calculates all retirement points, such as those earned through individual training drills, active duty training and correspondence courses. In class the students learned to use RPAM to calculate and perform reporting of Soldiers’ retirement points, including how to correct errors in Soldier records. In addition to calculating and reporting on points, the RPAM application generates 15-year (medical) and 20-year (standard) retirement point letters. Students also had the opportunity to learn about the features and capabilities of new RPAMNext application which is being tested at Maryland, New York and Ohio ARNG sites.
