The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) is an enterprise level shore command of the United States Navy with more than 19,000 military and staff personnel at more than 1,640 subordinate activities, sites, districts, stations, and detachments throughout the world. As the owner of the Force Development Pillar within MyNavy HR, NETC has full ownership of the entire “Street to Fleet” process, recruiting civilians, and through world-class training, transforming them into combat-ready warfighters ready to meet the current and future needs of fleet customers.
The commander of Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) is currently a 2-star admiral. NETC itself is located at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida.
The mission of NETC is to recruit and train those who serve our nation, taking them from street-to-fleet by transforming civilians into highly skilled, operational, and combat-ready warfighters, while providing the tools and opportunities for continuous learning and development.
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.

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). 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 "learning centers" that provide those initial and continuing training to the personnel across the service:
