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?
Is the Explosives Safety Mishap Analysis Module still working? I previously had access. However, the link to the ESMAM does not populate for me.
I am looking for a cross reference of DODICs that require humidity Indicators, and the HI part numbers/NSN's.
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 Propery Book accountability.
Can anyone point me to any type of doctrinal regulation, pamphlet, circular, letter, memorandum, or any typ of guidance that indicates that CAD/PAD items do not require such formal accountability once installed?

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 Pentachlorophenol is no longer used as a wood preservative and has been replaced by alternatives such as Copper-8-quinolinolate, zinc naphthenate, and copper naphthenate.
IAW Dwg 13064136 these alternative treatments that are currently authorized can be recognized by the following markings -
A PS Magazine Article (PS 677) as well as the DA Pam 742-1 22Nov2016 erroneously indicate that PA, PB & PC are pentachlorophenol treated.
