DA Form 348-1 – Army Pubs DA 348-1 Fillable – An Equipment Operator’s Qualification Record (Except Aircraft), also known as DA Form 348-1, is a document used by the United States Army to establish and record an individual’s qualifications, including any driving or equipment-operating experience.
The most recent version of the form was made available on August 1, 2011. The United States Department of the Army (DA) has produced a fillable DA Form 348-1, which is commonly referred to mistakenly as DD Form 348-1, which may be downloaded from the link provided below.
Every individual who operates equipment owned or leased by the United States Army is required to have a completed copy of the form on hand at all times. The form will be removed from official personnel files held on civilian workers of the United States government, as well as from Military Personnel Records Jackets maintained on military equipment operators and vehicle drivers of the United States military.
If a person is moved or discharged from their regular driving or equipment-operating responsibilities, the designated records reviewer will confirm that all relevant information has been appropriately entered into the Equipment Operator’s Qualification Record. When the space available on the DA Form 348, Equipment Operator’s Qualification Record (Except Aircraft), is insufficient to include all of the information requested, this form is utilized instead. All information included in this form is permanent and cannot be altered or deleted.
Instructions for DA Form 348
- All personally identifiable information must be typed into the top area of the application form to be considered. This section needs the following information: name, gender, birth date, eye and hair color, height, and weight. Input the permission number, which is the first letter of the last name followed by the last four digits of the Social Security number.
- If the permit number has changed as a result of a name change, cross out the old one and enter the new one on the application. Finish the section by specifying the type of permit and the date on which the license becomes effective.
- Section I is allocated for candidates who have received formal qualifications. It specifies the sort of equipment that the person is certified to operate, as well as any other qualifications that the individual may have, as well as the identity of the examiner who is giving the permit.
- Section II (“Background and Experience”) contains a list of the types of equipment that the individual has driving or operating experience with, as well as the size of the equipment, the type of driving or operation, and – once again – the identifying information of the examiner who verified the licensee’s driving or operating experience.
- Section III is devoted to the individual’s track record of accomplishments. This component of the DA 348 gives information regarding any formal training, debits, and credits, and any steps were taken by the commander to make sure that the soldier maintains a high level as a vehicle or equipment operator.
- Section IV’s first few lines, just before the phrase “Physical Evaluation Measures,” are left blank. The remainder needs a physical examination, a report of road test performance findings, and any other prerequisites for licensure that may be necessary.
- After the DA 348 is dated in Block 54 and signed by the person who gave the road test in Block 53, the applicant signs their form in Block 55, which is the last block of the process.
