Training can be found at https://millifelearning.militaryonesource.mil/. You may need to register for an account first, then search for eSponsorship Application & Training (eSAT) under the course catalog.

Additionally, all sponsors need to be active in reaching out to their inbound Soldier and doing their best to understand that Soldier’s and their families’ needs.
