Educational Support Technician

Oak Grove Technologies: USACE Readiness Support Center
I am responsible for credentialing all those who train through the Readiness Support Center of the United States Army Corps of Engineers in the ENGLink database so that their readiness status for deployment may remain "green" (ready to go). I am also responsible for ensuring that our in-residence groups have appropriate training materials and any other items that are needed. I currently keep up with our training totals to give an accurate total of who takes courses provided by the Readiness Support Center.
