Is there a course for Blocking & Bracing?

Ted: I am trying to find out if their are any courses out there that cover blocking and bracing of ammunition shipments. While I was in the Army the B&B crew was also the R&U, when I worked at SDDC ports it was union carpenter labor, and now I have a different crew, but they have no formal training. The DTR says all personnel involved in the handling, repackagiing, and loading operations have to be properly trained and recommends (https://training.dla.mil/HAZMAT) but I can never get that link to work. I have been to AMMO-62 and have taken AMMO-51, and done the Defense Basic Preservation and Packing (online) from DAC.....none of these cover blocking and bracing. Any suggestions where I can look for this training? Is there really a formal requirement..or just suggestions and recommendations?

QUESTIONS 

James: I am looking for a cross reference of DODICs that require humidity Indicators, and the HI part numbers/NSN's.

Response: Mr. Croley has posted an excel spreadsheet titled NSNs for Humidity Indicator and Desiccant.

 

Michael: Can anyone point me to any type of doctrinal regulation, pamphlet, circular, letter, memorandum, or any type of guidance that indicates that CAD/PAD items do not require such formal accountability once installed?

See Response from Ms. Whitelaw.

QUESTIONS/DISCUSSION

Question about CAD/PAD

Michael: It used to be that CAD/PAD items were only accounted for on Hand Receipt when uninstalled from the aircraft.  Once installed on the aircraft they were accounted for as part of the -17 aircraft inventory and did not require formal Property Book accountability. 

Can anyone point me to any type of doctrinal regulation, pamphlet, circular, letter, memorandum, or any type of guidance that indicates that CAD/PAD items do not require such formal accountability once installed?

Discussion about Pentachlorophenol Preservative Treatment

Brent: The attached documents will clarify some misinformation circulated regarding wood preservative treatments.

Wood treated with pentachlorophenol is indicated by a "P" marking (Ref USAEHA TG 146 attached).  Pentachlorophenol is no longer used as a wood preservative and has been replaced by alternatives such as Copper-8-quinolinolate, zinc naphthenate, and copper naphthenate.
