Programs & Policies
Instruction presented by EWTGLANT varies in scope from teaching individual students how to perform technical military tasks to training units to function as a team in conducting tactical evolutions. Military atmosphere in the daily routine is a vital part of all training. This promotes good order and discipline and maintains the leadership and professional skills of the students.
- The courses conducted by EWTGLANT are designed to provide individual or collective training.
- Individual training is that type of training which provides each student with the knowledge and skills required to successfully perform specific duties and tasks related to an assigned Military Occupational Specialty (MOS)/Navy Enlisted Code (NEC) or duty position. Emphasis is placed on evaluating the progress of all students, in order to aid them in the mastery of the learning objectives.
- Collective training includes those courses conducted to provide unit/team training, designed to prepare two or more individuals (e.g., crews, squads, platoons, companies) to accomplish missions and tasks required of the group, acting as a unit. Instruction is oriented toward training members of the unit to function as a team, and evaluation is based on the performance of the unit, as a whole, in accomplishing training objectives. Unit integrity is maintained for administrative and control purposes.
- EWTGLANT provides both resident and nonresident instruction, the latter being conducted by Mobile
Training Teams (MTT’s).
- EWTGLANT schedules a variety of individual and unit resident courses, each with a standard program of instruction/course of instruction (POI/COI). Available courses are described in Appendices B through H. In comparison with MTT’s, resident instruction offers many advantages in terms of instructional resources, instructor availability, and training support. Resident instruction also provides students and units with an environment conducive to learning, free from the routine pressures associated with training at their parent command.
- MTT’s are available to commands whose situation does not permit taking advantage of resident instruction. Commands requesting a MTT should be aware that instructor availability and unit support capabilities are key planning factors. MTT’s are normally tailored to fit specific requirements identified by requesting units/ships and are normally one to five training days in duration. TAD, printing, and consumable funding for the MTT must be provided by the requesting command.
Military & Training Regulations for Resident Courses
- Students attending resident courses are attached to EWTGLANT in a Temporary Additional Duty (TAD) status and units are attached for training.
- Students and units undergoing training are governed by the orders and regulations issued by the Commanding Officer, EWTGLANT, and/or the Commanding Officer of Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek - Fort Story.
- Students and members of units undergoing training are expected to maintain the highest standards of professional conduct and to exercise the authority and leadership responsibilities of their grade. Students must adhere to the spirit and letter of grooming and uniform regulations established both by the command and the parent service of the students and units.
- Academic performance is evaluated to the mastery concept. Each student who successfully masters an individual course will receive a Graduation Certificate or Letter of Attendance, as appropriate.
- Students will be disenrolled from a course for academic failure or administrative reasons. Upon disenrollment, we will notify the parent command and return the student as soon as possible.
- Academic failure occurs when a student does not master course requirements as specified in the program of instruction/testing plan.
- Administrative disenrollment occurs when a student demonstrates poor professional performance or attitude, is frequently late or absent from class, fails to meet course prerequisites, lacks the required security clearance, requires emergency leave or hospitalization, which results in prolonged absence, or for any reason that precludes further attendance of a course. Students administratively disenrolled will be returned to their parent command consistent with the following:
- Marine/Navy personnel disenrolled for disciplinary reasons may be subject to disciplinary action and then returned to their parent command or immediately returned to their parent command for disposition.
- Members of other services will normally be returned to their parent command for disposition.
Service School Codes
Service school codes are listed in each course description and in the Joint Uniform Military Pay System/Manpower Management System Codes Manual.Where no service school code has been established “N/A” will appear.
American Council on Education
The American Council on Education is a national regulating body which evaluates service school courses (45 academic hours or longer), Navy general rates and ratings, warrant officer/limited duty officer specialties, and selected NECs. If appropriate, credit is recommended to civilian post-secondary schools, colleges and universities in four areas: vocational-certificate, lower-division baccalaureate/associate degree, upper-division-baccalaureate degree, and graduate degree.
Department of Defence Skill Codes
- Where the completion of a course qualifies a student for a specific MOS/NEC, the Department of Defense (DoD) skill code associated with that MOS/NEC is listed in the course description. Where a course does not qualify a graduate for a particular MOS/NEC, “N/A” will appear.
- Any applicable DoD skill code is listed in the Marine Corps TIMS and Catalog of Navy Training Courses (CANTRAC).The definition of each DoD skill code and explanation of its use is found in DoD Instruction l312.1, Occupational Conversion Manual.
Navy Training Requirements
