Observing and accurately recording performance reveals the status of weapon maintenance, Soldier zero and qualification results, and each Soldier's ability to hit targets
What do Spot Checks provide NCO’s and Commanders?
Spot checks of individual marksmanship performance, such as interviews and evaluations of Soldiers, provide commanders and leaders with valuable information about Soldier proficiency and knowledge of the marksmanship tasks
What should be assessed when Reviewing Past Training?
1. The frequency and results of training.
2. The basic and advanced record fire results.
3. The frequency of unit-conducted collective CBRN or night fire training
What Six attributes must the unit Trainers have to develop a good Unit Marksmanship Program?

2. Question the firer.
3. Analyze the shot group
