  10. GREAT LAKES (NNS) -- The Navy has announced the 2017 Chief Petty Officer (CPO) Selectee Back to Boot Camp Heritage Legacy Training at the Navy's only boot camp, Recruit Training Command (RTC), from August 28 to September 1, 2017. The purpose of the training is to bring CPO Selectees back to boot camp to observe and participate in current training evolutions at RTC. Training will focus on developing leadership skills and helping selectees gain a better understanding of the 21st century Sailor entering the fleet. The training will allow the selectees, many who graduated from boot camp 10 or more years ago, to once again see the "Sailorization" process, and share their knowledge when they return to the Fleet as Chief Petty Officers. In a Navy message, leadership is requested to nominate CPO selectees for the opportunity to participate in this unique training and be a voice in the training of future Sailors. RTC will host up to 75 male and 75 female selectees, along with 15 Chief mentors to return to boot camp and "experience leadership and heritage training that is central to RTC and the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy's mission, vision and guiding principles." Nominees will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis by Recruit Training Command. Reserve and Active Duty selectee nominations are due one-week following the release of the respective selection board results to the NAVADMIN point of contact, YNCS James Jordon at (847) 688-2872 ext. 705/DSN 792 or e-mail at All personnel selected for participation will be notified on August 14, 2017. CPO Selectees and their sponsors will enjoy the same type of accommodations as recruits and conduct many of the same training evolutions they experienced the first time they went through boot camp such as folding and stowing, physical fitness assessments (PFA), swim qualifications, seamanship, firearms familiarization, damage control and marching. The events will culminate with CPO Selectees participating in the recruit training capstone event, Battle Stations 21, a 12-hour, all-inclusive training scenario on board the USS Trayer (BST 21), a 210-foot-long Arleigh Burke-class destroyer replica, the Navy's largest simulator. Upon completion of Battle Stations 21, CPO Selectees will attend a recruit graduation ceremony. For more information, please view the NAVADMIN 152/17 here: ( RTC is primarily responsible for conducting the initial Navy orientation and training of new recruits. The command is commonly referred to as "boot camp" or "recruit training" and has been in operation at Great Lakes since 1911. Boot camp is approximately eight weeks, and all enlistees into the United States Navy begin their careers at the command. Training includes physical fitness, seamanship, firearms familiarization, firefighting and shipboard damage control, lessons in Navy heritage and core values, teamwork and discipline. Since the closure of RTCs in Orlando and San Diego in 1994, RTC Great Lakes is, today, the Navy's only basic training location, and is known as "The Quarterdeck of the Navy." Today, about 30,000 to 40,000 recruits graduate annually from RTC and begin their Navy careers. RTC is overseen by Rear Adm. Stephen C. Evans, commander, Naval Service Training Command (NSTC), at Naval Station Great Lakes, Illinois. NSTC (NSTC) oversees 98 percent of initial officer and enlisted accessions training for the Navy. NSTC also includes the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) at more than 160 colleges and universities, Officer Training Command at Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island, and Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) and Navy National Defense Cadet Corps (NNDCC) citizenship development programs at more than 600 high schools worldwide.

  12. PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- As part of the Navy's transformation to a virtual service delivery model, the Navy College Program launched an update to the My Education portal June 27, significantly improving the Web Tuition Assistance approval process for Sailors taking off-duty education courses. "We've automated a major portion of the WebTA authorization process to improve accuracy, reduce the time it takes to complete the application, and get vouchers authorized," said Cathe Waters, Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center Voluntary Education (VOLED) lead program analyst. "Not only does the new process give commanding officers greater authority in the TA authorization process, the improvements will enable faster enrollments, grade posting, invoice payments, and make voluntary education less stressful for our Sailors." Previously, Sailors had to wait for the Navy College staff to manually verify and authorize their WebTA applications after command approval. The new process automatically checks/validates the Academic Institution's (AI) course/tuition information, validates a Sailor's status, including degree plan, counseling, no missing grades, EAOS status, TA annual usage, etc. As part of the update, the My Education portal also adds an AI module where Sailors can select their courses/tuition rates and have those automatically uploaded to the WebTA voucher. "If all Navy requirements are met, if the Sailor has used course and tuition information from AI module to populate the WebTA request, and if the request is command approved, then My Education automatically sends the service member a link to the school payment voucher for signing and delivery to the Academic Institution" Waters added. "Our approval backlog for TA requests has averaged nearly five-hundred on any given day, each requiring manual review," said Lt. Cmdr. Nick Turner, NETPDC VOLED deputy director. "The new automated WebTA process will significantly reduce the backlog, allowing exceptionally quick turnaround." In order for a Sailor to have their WebTA request accepted and command approved, they need to meet specific training and policy requirements, (training completed, academic counseling by a Navy College Counselor, degree plan uploaded, passing the PRT, recommended for advancement, etc.) to qualify. Mandatory training includes TA Policy and Procedures Training and the Joint Knowledge Online Higher Education Prep Course. Training can be found at the Navy College website under 'Resources' and 'Training.' Navy College Education Counselors also provide the required academic counseling to help Sailors define their goals and select an education program. Once a college/university and a program have been selected, Sailors work with their AI to produce an education plan which they upload to their 'My Education,' 'education tab,' and 'upload files' tab. When all the above requirements have been met, Sailors are able to create, save, and submit their WebTA application, entering the Command Approver's e-mail address. WebTA applications that do not pass the automatic checks will be reviewed and manually processed by a Navy College Program staff member, requiring extra time to fix problems. WebTA requests received prior to 27 June will continue to be manually processed until all are funded. "As a final push to help eliminate the current WebTA queue, we will be concentrating efforts of the Navy College Virtual Education Center (NCVEC) staff on Friday June 30 and Monday July 3 for TA processing," said Turner. "On those days, live chat and help requests will still be available for Sailors needing assistance. Normal VEC hours will resume July 5." It is highly recommended that WebTA applications be submitted no later than 30 days in advance, but all WebTA applications MUST be command approved no later than 14 calendar days prior to an AI's published term start date. Applications may be submitted for approval up to 120 days prior to term start dates. Visit the NCP website: to start the education process, submit a Help Request at the Assistance Center, initiate a Live Chat session, or review knowledge management articles. The NCVEC can be reached toll free 1-877-838-1659 Monday-Friday 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST.

  16. It's that time of year again. We're 16 pages deep! Glad to see I'm not the only one anxious. I can't wait for these AC quotas to come out. CMCS numbers(5) weren't too high this year but I'm still optimistic for the CMC numbers. Good luck to all waiting impatiently. AC/FTS and SELRES.
  17. That's a very good question especially when it comes to an achievement like that. I had 8, count it 8 duplicates of history of assignments, agree ext enl, immed reenl control, and admin remarks. Yeah I shot myself in the foot last cycle for not scrubbing my ompf until after the results came out which was the big fat "N". I got that squared away fast! Soooo uh, quotas? Where you at?
  18. FTS results PLEASE hahahah.... I think being stuck on duty is making the wait drag even longer this year.... Good Luck to all the AD guys.... hopefully you guys see quotas this week!
  19. come one lets see those AD Quatoas
  20. The Navy is planning to decrease 14 selective reenlistment bonus levels and eliminate six skills from the list of bonus-eligible careers, the office of the Chief of Naval Personnel announced on June 17, a move that seems counterintuitive to a branch that claims to have a renewed focus on reenlistment.
  21. Board convened yesterday for us, AD folks hoping we see quotas today or sometime this week. I was reading a few post back about duplicates in the OMPF. I had a duplicate in my record for Bachelors Degree Transcript and didn't think to get it removed. That is the only duplicate I have in my record that the board may see. Is this a distractor? Will it be looked at negatively?
  22. Yesterday
  23. That's exactly what I was thinking. I went on NPC and checked out the quotas for ITCS. Good sign...I hope.
