Each course exhibit has these components: identification number; military course number with course version numbers and titles; location; length; exhibit dates; learning outcomes; instruction; credit recommendation; and related occupational codes. Volume 2 contains recommendations for Army enlisted and warrant officer military occupational specialties (MOS). Each MOS exhibit has these components: identification number; title and MOS designation; career management field; description; and recommendation.
