Command Overview

The Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Pensacola, commissioned originally as the Naval Training Station (Aviation Maintenance) on Sept. 23, 1942, has grown from three schools to the present 110 courses. The training center received its present name on Feb. 6, 1943 as it continued to grow in size and importance. The training center today stands some 5,300 strong including students, instructors, and support personnel under the command of a Navy captain.

The center graduates approximately 15,000 Navy and Marine students yearly. The largest part of this student body is comprised of enlisted personnel attending "A" schools designed to provide them with the knowledge and skill levels required to perform as technicians at the third class petty officer level. Advanced schools provide higher level technical knowledge for senior petty officers, and specialty schools offer specific skills not peculiar to any one rating. NATTC also conducts technical training for officers.

  1. People. People are the key to any successful organization. NATTC cannot complete its mission without well-trained, well-led, motivated and competent personnel. Take time to mentor someone both personally and professionally.
    • Personal examples:
      • Ensure newly reporting personnel have active sponsors.
      • Departing personnel are recognized properly for their contributions.
      • There is equal opportunity in the workplace.
      • Families are well taken care of.
      • Special request chits are processed in a timely manner.
      • There is zero tolerance for poor performance, drug/alcohol abuse, sexual harassment, fraternization, racism, harassment/hazing, dishonesty and disrespect.
      • Personal problems are dealt with in a considerate manner.
      • Generally looking out for the welfare of our personnel.
    • Professional examples:
      • Ensure all eligible personnel are advancement ready.
      • Maintain an effective training program.
      • Encourage pursuit of educational opportunities.
      • Demonstrate an ethical, moral and honest demeanor at all times and expect no less from your subordinates and your peers.
  1. The items listed above are by no means all inclusive, on the contrary, they are but a few examples provided to illustrate how existing programs fit into my command philosophy with respect to how we operate and take care of our people. Fundamental to success in any organization is an effective chain of command that works both ways and provides a conduit for the constructive flow of information between all levels of command.
  2. Conduct. Conduct on and off duty, in uniform or civilian clothes, on station or off station, is a reflection of the individual and his/her unit. I expect all hands to exhibit a strong moral and ethical code of conduct at all times. If you choose to violate the laws of our country, state or the UCMJ, you will be held accountable for your actions.
  3. Leave. I encourage all hands to take their annual leave. It should be everyone’s (civilian and military) goal to manage your leave throughout the year to avoid last minute use or lose situations. No one should lose leave.
  4. Appearance. Appearance is an indicator of our pride and professionalism. Compliance with uniform and grooming standards is expected for military personnel. Civilians are expected to wear appropriate attire.
  5. Grounds and Spaces. First impressions are lasting ones. Although we do not have total responsibility for the maintenance of the grounds around our buildings, we are responsible for the general upkeep of our areas of responsibility. The appearance of work spaces are a direct reflection on those who occupy them and are a visual indication of the quality of work provided or produced. It is your responsibility to keep these areas clean. Again, first impressions are lasting ones.
  6. Physical Readiness. I fully support the Navy Physical Readiness initiatives. I expect all military members, and encourage all civilian employees to participate in the command physical fitness program. Further, I encourage all hands to establish a personal physical training regimen to compliment the command physical training program.
  7. Volunteer Initiatives. I strongly support volunteer initiatives. I can think of no more visible way to demonstrate to the public that we are not only professional military members but also caring and active contributors to the communities in which we live.
