There are four types of SRPs that are conducted on Fort Knox:

  • In-Processing SRP: conducted simultaneously as the Soldier in-processes through the installation.
  • Annual SRP: unit commanders will schedule with this office 60 days prior to the desired SRP date. When scheduling keep in mind that deployment SRPs will take priority if there is a conflict.
  • Predeployment SRP: commanders, whose unit has been identified for deployment, will schedule with this office no more than 120 days and no less than 90 days prior to actual deployment date.
  • Deployment SRP: unit commanders will schedule with this office no earlier than 60 days from the scheduled unit deployment date. Soldiers on individual taskings will report to Bldg 1378, Room 115 no earlier than 60 days prior to their schedule report date to CONUS Replacement Center (CRC) or gaining unit as identified on their tasking.

All Soldiers being reassigned on a Transition Team tasking must complete SRP between 45-60 days from their report date to Fort Riley. This SRP must be completed prior to clearing the installation.

Soldiers who are scheduled to report to the CRC, Fort Benning are encouraged to visit the CRC Website at in order to find up to date information, such as packing lists, prior to their arrival. Additionally, all Soldiers who process through the CRC are required to obtain a Training Certification Memorandum signed by an O-6 or above.
