The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) is an enterprise level shore command of the United States Navy that is responsible for training, education and professional development of the Navy's 400,000 active duty and reserve Sailors through accession, continuing education, and advancement training. The Chief of Naval Education and Training (CNET), currently a 2-star Admiral, directs over 22,000 personnel and over 160 various activities tasked with the preponderance of training activities for USN and USMC officer and enlisted personnel. NETC itself is headquartered aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, with NETC N7 located onboard Naval Station Norfolk.
The mission of NETC is "to educate and train those who serve, providing the tools and opportunities which enable life-long learning, professional and personal growth and development, ensuring fleet readiness and mission accomplishment; and to perform such other functions and tasks assigned by higher authority. Additionally, serve as sole claimant for individual training and education, and as the principal advisor to the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) and Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command (COMUSFLTFORCOM) on training and education related matters.
Probably the most high profile of the four subordinate commands is that of Naval Service Training Command, based in Naval Station Great Lakes, in Great Lakes, Illinois is the one-star command that is responsible for the training of all new accessions into the United States Navy. He or she oversees the operation of Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illinois, the Navy's only enlisted recruit training location, and is responsible for the operation of Officer Training Command at Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island, and the operation of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) at several schools across the country. The only accession route not commanded by NSTC is that of the United States Naval Academy, which is overseen by the Superintendent of the United States Naval Academy, who reports directly to the CNO.
After initial training, most personnel must continue on to an apprentice-level training before entering the fleet. For that, Navy NETC has created eleven "learning centers" that provide those initial and continuing training to the personnel across the service:
In addition, NETC operates Training Support Centers, that provide centralized student management and infrastructure support the individual learning centers and their subordinate sites, located in San Diego, Virginia Beach and Great Lakes, Illinois.
Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center, which is located on Saufley Field in Escambia County, Florida is the home of all of the Navy's enlisted professional development programs and products, which include the administering Voluntary Education (VOLED) programs, including the Navy College program, which allows enlisted servicemembers to obtain college credits for Naval Training, as well as administering the Tuition Assistance program that pays for 100% of a servicemembers college courses expense while the member is active duty.
