Question: Are Army Correspondence Courses still eligible for promotion points?

Answer: Yes.  In order to earn promotion points, Soldiers must complete the entire correspondence course they are enrolled in and
possess a certificate of completion.  Individual sub-courses on their own will not count for promotion points.

Question: Will Soldiers lose those sub-course points? Or are they "grand-fathered"?

Answer: Sub-courses will not be grand-fathered. Soldiers must have record of a completed full course.  Sub-courses are only part
of a full course.

Question: On the chart for the conversion of Army Correspondence Courses, are the point values attributed to each individual sub-
course and then added together, or are the total hours calculated first, and then converted to promotion points? I am guessing that
the first is true, seeing that the chart only goes to 320 hours, but I would like to clarify it.

Answer: Promotion points will be based on 1 point per 5 hours of completed ACCP training – restricted to courses completed in
their entirety.  The Soldier must have record of a completed full course and the total credit hours for the entire course will be divided
by 5 to determine promotion points.

Question: Is there a max number of points a Soldier can earn for ACCP?

Answer: The maximum number of points is only restricted to the total points that can be potentially earned in the overall category.  
Computation of promotion points is a simple mathematical computation.  For example, a Soldier completes three ACCP course
consisting of 40 hours, 165 hours and 228 hours.  Add the total hours completed (40+165+228=433 hours), then divide by 5
(433/5=86.6), then drop any decimal points.  In this example the Soldier is awarded 86 promotion points.

Question: Is full ACCP course completion required to count as points?  I'm being told that ACCP credit hours will only count towards
promotion if a SM has completed the full course.  Is this true?

Answer: Yes.  Effective with 1 June 2011 promotions, Soldiers receive promotion points for full ACCP course completion only.  
Courses completed after 22 December 2010 will be added to the Soldiers ERB via ATRRS.  Courses completed prior to 22
December 2010 should be added to the Soldiers ERB by the BDE/BN S1 or MPD based on a certificate of completion.
