DETERMINATION OF GRADE

a. The GS-0303 series contains no applicable grade criteria. A cross series comparison is made with the Grade Level Guide for Clerical and Assistance Work. The coordination, advice, and reporting duties are a substantial match to the GS-07 level description of technical assistance work.

b. Incumbent requires a working knowledge of Army and inspection of range and training areas and Fort Drum, NY range safety regulations, risk assessment process and range SOP's to assist in coordinating and scheduling activities with training exercises; and judgment to integrate authorized live fire activities into an air-traffic control environment.

c. Incumbent must possess considerable knowledge of weapons systems, range safety and related range safety regulations, range complex capabilities, and training requirements to ensure a safe training environment always exists.

NATURE OF ASSIGNMENT

The issuance of detailed instructions, issuance of on the spot safety corrections, inspection of units with feedback to unit and advice to units conducting training on the range and training requires a combination of skills and knowledge analogous to those described at the GS-07 level. Assistance provided is direct and immediate. The ability to obtain the required information and conduct inspections is attainable only through applicable training and experience in the nature and function of weapons, artillery, mortars, MLRS missiles, ammunition procedures, and methods, and a broad practical knowledge of range-control operations.

NATURE OF CONTACTS

Subject position meets the GS-07 level in that incumbent completes contact with all levels of staff and organization relating to actual range operations, regulations, safety, ordnance weapons handling and use, inspections and vehicle traffic on and air traffic over the ranges and training areas, environmental requirements, etc.

LEVEL OF RESPONSIBILITY

The incumbent works under the direction of the Range Operations Supervisor and is expected to accomplish duties independently. Work is reviewed for soundness of judgment, compliance with policies and procedures, and results of overall range control operations. The supervisor is available to assist with deviations, which will have significant impact, to review actions taken to resolve difficulties, and to assist in controversial problems or conflicts in allocation of resources, scheduling, and conduct of range/training area inspections. This factor fully meets the GS-7 level standards.
