EIB Stations / Points / Tasks

 

Below is a list of the stations, points, and tasks for the EIB test. Unless otherwise noted, each point is a retest element. Failing a performance measure at a point requires the candidate to retest that point only, not the entire station. For example, if a candidate fails any or all performance measures on the night land navigation course, he retests only the night land navigation course. However, if a candidate fails both the day and night land navigation courses, he retests both, and each retest counts as one of the candidate's two allowable retests. That candidate will not be allowed any more retests.

            a.         At Station E, test one of the following: the SINCGARS or the ASIP radio but not both.

            b.         At Station L, test either the M60 machine gun or the M240B machine gun but not both.

            c.         At Station N, test either the caliber .50 machine gun or the MK 19 40-mm grenade machine gun but not both.

            d.         Ensure that scorers complete score sheets based on the examples.

            e.         The commander gives each soldier a completed requirements sheet and a blank score sheet. The completed requirements sheet should specify the numbered location of each testing stake.

            f.          Uniforms for candidates participating in the EIB test include--

            (1)        Army Physical Fitness Test. Candidates wear the standard Army physical fitness uniform, adjusted seasonally by the Commander.

            (2)        All other stations. For all other stations, candidates wear the following uniform items in the manner prescribed by the unit SOP for normal tactical operations. Units equipped with assault vests and other equipment may, if directed by the EIB board, modify this list of equipment: 

  • Pistol belt with suspenders.

  • Ammunition pouches (two) with M16 magazines (six).

  • Canteens with water (two), canteen covers (two), canteen cup (one).

  • First-aid packet and case.

  • Poncho.
