In America’s Navy, training is everything. It’s the basic instruction that turns everyday people into extraordinary Sailors, and the specialized instruction that prepares them for even greater challenges. It comes from expert instructors at Navy “A” Schools and “C” Schools across the country who provide Enlisted Sailors with advanced training in their respective fields. It comes from those who lead the Officer Training Programs that prepare tomorrow’s Navy leaders for their Officer roles. And it comes from others who teach high-level courses at renowned institutions like the Naval Postgraduate School.
Training in the Navy is also conducted in less formalized ways every day. Friends, shipmates and mentors routinely share their knowledge with one another, continually building on the collective wisdom formed through years of service. The constant repetition required to master any skill and the hard-won readiness that comes from putting those skills to the test give many a degree in real-world, hands-on experience – credentials they can in turn pass on.
No question, Navy training can come from a variety of proven sources – each giving fellow Sailors the know-how to work with the world’s most high-tech equipment and technology, the tools to survive in the harshest environments, and the means to succeed in their chosen profession. At some point, every Sailor shares in the training of those around them. It’s simply a culture of teaching and learning.
