As of this writing, the JPO has achieved its goal of 90% operational readiness (OR) rate (MRAP JPO, 2008, October 21). This success is directly attributable to the decision to use CLS early in the program. This enabled the JPO to rapidly field the

MRAP University

MRAP University offers cross-platform training geared towards familiarizing all attendees with the five most common MRAP vehicles, as shown in Figure 26. MRAP University was created to provide a common place to familiarize personnel on operations and maintenance of the multiple variants of MRAP vehicles. It is run by TACOM and has been active since November 2007. Until September 19, 2008, MRAP University offered two courses, the Field Level Maintenance Training Course and the Operator Training Course, both 40 hours in length. These courses provided basic familiarization and operator training, as well as an overview of maintenance, diagnostics and troubleshooting, and recovery procedures.
