Submarine Information Technology (IT)
We are in the process of standing up the Information Systems Technician, Submarines (ITS) rate and are on pace for rating establishment in 2011. The biggest concern from the fleet right now is how a Sailor can convert to ITS. Instructions on the process will be sent out in a naval message in the near future, but you can expect that the source ratings to be the forward electronic ratings; ET, STS, and FT. This does not preclude any other rating from applying, but the final decision will be made by your rating detailer and the ECM. To apply for a LAN job, you have to be released by your detailer and then discuss your options with me. I will make every effort to facilitate your request as far as type of platform and home port location. The biggest concern I have for you is getting the right schools for the NEC required. J-NET-Core (2735) is the prerequisite for NSVT (2780) and ANA (2781). In today’s high-tech world, information security is critical to the mission of the Navy and to the health of our country. If you are interested in, or would like more information about the IT/SS rating, please call me and I will answer any questions you have.
