The General Services Administration provides various JFTR and JTR training courses in addition to GSA FTR (at cost) to members and civilian employees.   PDTATAC staff periodically review GSA JFTR and JTR related training materials for regulations compliance.  The training courses further extend to fiscal and transportation topics.  Please see GSA website for more information.

3. Who within DoD provides training for the JFTR (Volume 1) and JTR (Volume 2) for DoD members and civilian employees?

Defense Travel Management Office (DTMO) provides various JFTR and JTR related training courses to DoD members and civilian employees.  The online courses are at no cost to participants.  Please see DTMO website for more information.  PDTATAC staff reviews JFTR and JTR related training materials for regulations compliance IAW DoD 5154.29 issuance.

PDTATAC staff comments: Training programs intent is to teach or refresh the participating attendees’ knowledge of JFTR and JTR regulations.  The JFTR and JTR prevail if the training materials conflict with the regulations.  Please notify the course instructor/program manager or contact the responsible POC within your organization to validate questionable course materials.  If unknown, contact the responsible Civilian or Military Advisory Panel (CAP/MAP) representative for your Agency/Service for further assistance.  Refer to MAP/CAP Contact List for the information.
