Navigation/Communications Electronics Technicians (ET)
Training continues to be the highest priority as the modernization of communication and navigation suites become more prevalent. The Common Submarine Radio Room, AN/BLQ-10, and Photonics mast maintainers need to get to the appropriate platforms. To compensate for the lack of fleet maintainers, top performing “A” School graduates may enquire about possible follow on “C” School.
As always, forward-deployed vessels and commands are a priority. Assignment to an SSN in Guam or a watch floor overseas is an opportunity to gain valuable experience and has significant value at selection boards. Highly motivated Sailors are needed at Submarine School staff in Groton, CT; a great opportunity to lead and train. Also, GSA/IAMM assignments are available for ET’s transferring from sea. GSA assignments are normally in rate and 8-12 months long.
Learn, lead, and train at sea and you will succeed. Many opportunities exist for ET’s, please feel free to contact us with any questions.
