Featuring the latest information and updates regarding your Navy Career Tools.
Navy Knowledge Online Technology Refresh (NKO-TR) - The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) is modernizing the underlying technology infrastructure of Navy Knowledge Online (NKO) during the 4th Quarter of FY13. NKO-TR provides a more stable and flexible platform that will enable future growth and enhancements. Once complete, the new NKO will be more secure, easier to navigate, and offer users a cleaner looking and more intuitive interface to the same applications and content provided today.
IMPORTANT: This change does not affect Afloat systems.
Navy eLearning Modernization - The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) is modernizing Navy e-Learning (NeL) online training delivery by implementing a new learning management system. The current Navy e-Learning was launched in 2001, and today over one million users have access to 8000 online courses. The new Navy e-Learning significantly improves NETC’s ability to deliver up-to-date and relevant training to Sailors in a dynamic and rapidly changing Fleet environment.
The new Navy e-Learning—which is shore-based only and does not change NeL Afloat—has a different look and feel from the system you currently use. View the following user aids for more information:
IMPORTANT: There will be NO CHANGE to Navy e-Learning Afloat and shipboard users will continue to complete NeL Afloat courses in the disconnected environment provided by the ship’s Navy Information Application Product Suite (NIAPS). All NeL Afloat course completions will be sent to shore-based systems as an official record in the new NeL, Fleet Training Management Planning System (FLTMPS), Electronic Training Jacket (ETJ) and Electronic Service Record (ESR).
Career Tools for Afloat Sailors - Throughout 2013, Navy surface ships are receiving two new upgrades to NIAPS. These are:
1. The Career Tools Afloat page, or "CTA," which replaces "NKO at Sea." You'll see it's a lot better than NKO at Sea was, and greatly simplifies Sailor access to personnel and training applications that reside on NIAPS, NSIPS or the Internet. So now, afloat Sailors should look for the "CTA" page, in order to find their Navy eLearning courses, Electronic Service Record, Electronic Training Jacket, etc.
2. Maintenance Upgrade 1B-5, or MU1B-5, incorporates new functionality that gives afloat Sailors and Training Officers a way to know for sure if Navy eLearning Afloat on NIAPS is working reliably or not. It also provides new functionality to the Electronic Training Jacket and FLTMPS Afloat.
