JROTC Course Registration Instructions on the ALMS (.ppt)

ALMS Login (Do an advanced search for "jrotc") The ALMS site performs best in Internet Explorer.

The present means of logging in and registering for JROTC Courses in Distance Learning is an interim step to a final solution. None of the completion data from the old system will be lost, but it will probably be until mid-December before the conversion is complete. Members can take whatever training they need now in the ALMS and when the data is converted none of the ALMS completion data will be overwritten with the converted data. Once we have made the complete transition instructors will show as automatically registered in the courses and their completed courses will show up on the transcript page. There will be automatic notifications when it is time for the annual required lessons to be taken as well as when anything new is added that will require attention.
