Effective January 2016, all students attending BLC are required to have an Army Reserve Network account. This is a requirement for the use of classroom computers. If the Soldier does not have an active “ARNet” user account, a training account will be created for the duration of the course. In order to do so, the Soldier must comply with the following requirements PRIOR to course attendance:

NOTE: Not complying with these requirements will result in not having access to course material on day 1 of training or will result in disenrollment from the course per Course Management Plan.

 

  1.

Have a valid Common Access Card (CAC) and PIN. The CAC must not expire until 30 days after graduation and must not be locked (entered PIN incorrectly three or more times). If any of these conditions are not met, you will need to visit a Soldier support center to have a new CAC issued or have your CAC PIN reset.

  2.

Provide a memorandum signed by their Unit Security Manager or designated representative validating the Soldier’s favorable background investigation IAW AR 25-2 (Click Here to download the form).
