Recommended Posts


PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- The pilot course for the new Cryptologic Technician (maintenance) (CTM) "A" School convened Jan. 6 at Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station.

The curriculum, developed by the training directorate at Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT), is designed to provide entry-level CTM personnel with fundamental knowledge and skills in the field of electronics equipment repair. Students receive classroom and hands-on laboratory training on computer, networking, communication, and collection systems, as well as test equipment such as hardware, software, operating systems, and peripheral devices.

The course integrates relevant training topics from the Apprentice Technical Training (ATT) course, a prerequisite school for the CTM rating, to eliminate redundancy. The course also incorporates elements of the information systems technician training curriculum.

The update is expected to result in a 30 percent decrease in production training time and more closely aligns with the Ready Relevant Learning initiative. The streamlining of the course is expected to save nearly $850,000 annually. 

"As with any newly-developed course, being able to 'test drive' the learning materials with students while validating the course's length is critical to a successful Navy pilot," said Danny Campbell, CIWT's cryptologic functional program lead. "We owe it to the Navy to be not only effective in executing our training, but being efficient in utilizing our resources."

Students in this pilot course are scheduled to graduate April 11.

Information Warfare Training Command Corry Station, as part of the Center for Information Warfare Training, provides a continuum of training to Navy and joint service personnel which prepares them to conduct information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

Center for Information Warfare Training delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services, enabling optimal performance of information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.
