Reserve Funded TADs
Inactive Duty Training (IDT): Four-hour drill period typically done on weekends with two four-hour drill periods per day, performed at an individualís normal drill site. No orders are needed for IDT because their not on active duty, ADT, or AT orders.
Types of Drill
* Regular Scheduled Drill: IDTs performed per published schedule and established in advance.
* Flex Drill (Flex): Regular IDTs authorized by the Unit CO that are performed outside the normally scheduled drill times to allow Reservists to complete formal schooling or provide peacetime support. Unit COs may authorize a maximum of 40 flex IDTs per fiscal year. Unit members must sign Page 13 entries acknowledging the Flex Drill policy.
Incremental Drill: Provides the opportunity for unit personnel to receive drill credit and pay for performing contributory support for their gaining commands in incremental periods until four hours are accrued. Gaining Commands may request up to 40 incremental drill periods per fiscal year. Unit COs will approve and provide written authorization for Incremental Drill and a NAVRES 1570/16 form will be used to document incremental IDT periods. Unit COs must endorse the form and forward it to the NRA for processing.
* Rescheduled Drill (RS): Regular IDTs performed on a different date or at a different location from the published unit IDT schedule. This could be due to an AT/ADT conflict or to accomplish specific training for the ďneeds of the Navy.Ē May not be scheduled after the regularly scheduled drill.
Additional Training Periods (ATP): Additional paid drill periods authorized by Commander, Naval Reserve Forces (CNRF), for specific units/billets to support a unitís specific mobilization mission. A maximum of 12 ATPs may be authorized each fiscal year.

Readiness Management Periods (RMP): Additional paid drills used to support day-to-day unit operation and accomplish unit administration, training preparation, support activities, and maintenance functions. RMP cannot be performed on the same day as any other IDT and only one RMP may be credited per day. A maximum of 24 RMPs may be authorized each fiscal year.
Inactive Duty Training with Travel (IDTT): Same as IDT except that travel beyond 100 miles from your drill site or home is authorized to perform training away from an individualís normal drill site. Orders are required to perform IDTT through NROWS.
Annual Training (AT): A period of active duty, typically 12 to 17 days in length (& up to maximum of sometimes 29 days (check in July & August with your Training Officer)) which individual Selected Reservists are authorized and required to perform each year in order to achieve a qualifying year for retirement. Orders are always required when performing AT through NROWS.
