The Training Department supports ship-wide training requirements in a variety of ways. Training Department personnel are trained in managing the Indoctrination courses, which trains newly reporting Sailors and Officers about life aboard GW. Training Department Sailors receive requests for cost and no cost Temporary Duty Orders for Sailors and Officers to attend schools locally and across the country. This includes obtaining course quotas, arranging transportation and lodging for Sailors through CeTARS and DTS. Shipboard Fire Fighting and Watertight Closure are a couple of the general training courses Sailors attend.  The Training Department also assists in guiding those who have not previously obtained a Government Travel Charge Card, which is a necessary tool to have for any cost TDY travels that occur.​
