RRL Block Learning To Be Delivered Fleet-Wide

Recommended Posts

NORFOLK (NNS) -- U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFF) announced the Navy-wide commencement of the block learning stage of Ready Relevant Learning (RRL) via NAVADMIN 089/18, April 5.

Block Learning, or BL, is designed to be the first stage in training delivery under a transformed training construct of the RRL pillar of Sailor 2025. BL training is critical to individual and unit readiness, and the individual career progression of a Sailor. 

BL training represents the first steps toward providing Sailors with the right training, at the right time and in the right way.

The intended pathway for training under the RRL block learning structure involves Sailors completing initial training at Recruit Training Command along with their initial technical training, called Block 0 (BL0). Sailors then report to their first operational unit with the mission-essential skills needed to support their first two years aboard - ideally, arriving sooner than under previous training constructs.

Type Commanders' training requirements may then necessitate Sailors to receive an additional two to five weeks of training, termed Block 1 (BL1), anywhere from 12 to 24 months from their initial report date, at the unit's discretion. Sailors will then return to their command with expanded knowledge and skills they'll use to perform tasks required for the remainder of their first operational tour.

Units will be required to designate unit training officers to act as the primary point of contact with Training Support Centers and they must establish an email address for use by their training officer by May 1, 2018. 

TSC Hampton Roads will provide support for commands east of the Mississippi River; Training Support Center San Diego will provide support for commands west of the Mississippi River. Instructions on how to format email addresses and establish a training officer account can be found in NAVADMIN 089/18.

Navy-wide delivery of block learning serves as an important milestone for the RRL program. The first batch of block learning was delivered by Naval Technical Training Center in Meridian, Mississippi, to new accession logistics specialists in April 2017.
