JULY 27, 2016, PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) – The Navy announced via Naval Administrative Message (NAVADMIN) 166/16, additional flexibility for the fiscal year 2017 General Military Training (GMT) requirements released July 26.
The two categories of GMT, Standardized Core Training (SCT) and Command-Assigned Readiness Enhancement (CARE) training will continue to place additional control at the discretion of commands in determining the frequency at which some of the training is delivered.
The following SCT topics are required by all uniformed personnel during the upcoming fiscal year either through instructor led, face-to-face delivery at the command level or, in some cases, completed individually via Navy eLearning:
1. Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Awareness
2. Equal Opportunity/Sexual Harassment/Grievance Procedures (EO/SH)
3. Suicide Prevention
4. Combating Trafficking in Persons General Awareness
5. Antiterrorism Level I Awareness
6. Cyber Security Awareness
7. Counterintellligence Awareness and Reporting
8. Operations Security (OPSEC)
9. Privacy and Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
10. Records Management
All of the following CARE topics for the upcoming fiscal year are to be delivered to the appropriate audience at an appropriate periodicity as determined by local command leadership, allowing individual commands the flexibility to determine what training is required and how often it is accomplished. There is NO minimum periodicity associated with these topics:
1. Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco Awareness
2. Stress Management
3. Domestic Violence Prevention and Reporting
4. Sexual Health and Responsibility
5. Physical Readiness
6. Hazing Policy and Prevention
7. Personal Financial Management
8. Operational Risk Management
9. Energy Policy
Additionally, there are currently four GMT courses available via mobile applications — OPSEC, Records Management, PII and Domestic Violence Prevention. The apps are “bring-your-own-device” tools designed to work on personal devices outside of the Navy and Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) domain. Users can download the apps from both Google Play and iTunes app stores at no cost.
All individually-completed web-based and mobile app delivered training is recorded and tracked in the individual’s electronic training jacket. Command-delivered training completion is documented in FLTMPS (Fleet Training Management Planning System).
