Resilience Training Program

The Indiana National Guard’s Resilience Training Program is dedicated to the physical, emotional and mental health of our service members and their dependents, and our federal civilian employees.

The core program focuses on helping personnel achieve and maintain a state of fitness, rather than addressing issues after they arise. At the heart of the process is Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness (CSF2), a structured, long term assessment and development program to build resilience and enhance performance.

Indiana National Guard Requirements are as follows:

  • One MRT per company and one additional MRT for any detachments to the company
  • Additional RTA per company recommended
  • One MRT at each battalion level and higher highly recommended
  • E6 and above, and E5 with a memo containing an endorsement from the command/authority granting permission to attend the course

About the Resilience Program

What is a Master Resilience Trainer?
A Master Resilience Trainer (MRT) is an individual specially trained to generate and sustain forces to teach resilience classes and to oversee resilience programs within his or her unit. MRTs receive an additional skill identifier (ASI).

Our Mission: Develop and institute a holistic fitness program for soldiers, families and Army civilians in order to enhance performance and build resilience.

Our Vision: An Army of balanced, healthy, self-confident soldiers, families and Army civilians whose resilience and total fitness enables them to thrive in an era of high operational tempo and persistent conflict.

Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness

The U.S. Army established comprehensive soldier fitness in 2008 to address the challenges many were facing due to multiple deployments. The goal was to provide preventative measures that would mitigate issues that would commonly arise during combat, and to give soldiers the life skills they would need to better cope with adversity and bounce back stronger from challenges. In 2012, the program expanded to include families of soldiers and federal civilian employees working for the U.S. Army.
