AMPN/REF A IS NAVADMIN 213/15, FY-16 GENERAL MILITARY TRAINING SCHEDULE//
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN provides guidance for Chart the Course (CTC) training
and outlines the requirements for completion and documentation. CTC
highlights many issues faced by Sailors where both simple and complex
decisions may need to be made and the subsequent impact and potential
consequences of those decisions. The CTC task force will facilitate delivery
of this training to all active and reserve Navy personnel.
2. Background. CTC continues our efforts to combat destructive behaviors
across the fleet while reinforcing and building upon our Navy Core Values and
Navy Ethos. CTC blends scenario-based videos with facilitator-led
discussions addressing the idea that all hands must take ownership of
enhancing a positive and professional climate within their commands and work
environments (e.g., work centers, divisions, departments, watch teams,
detachments, etc.). CTC will thus serve as a navigation plan to help all
Sailors recognize admirable decision-making and professional behavior when
faced with challenging circumstances and/or situations. Since this training
bridges several topic areas, commands may also use completion of CTC to
satisfy hazing policy and prevention; operational risk management; and
alcohol, drug, and tobacco awareness command-assigned readiness-enhancement
general military training as directed in reference (a).
3. Command Facilitator Training. Training will be delivered to all active
and reserve personnel by certified command facilitators (CFs) selected by
their individual commands. Designated CFs personnel will be trained on CTC
facilitation techniques by Master Mobile Training Teams (MMTT) from the CTC
Task Force and will then deliver the interactive video and facilitated face-
to-face sessions in small groups to their peers within the command.
a. Due to similarities in the training methods, CFs certified to
instruct Bystander Intervention to the Fleet in FY-15 remain certified to
instruct CTC (even if they have subsequently transferred commands). The CTC
Task Force will provide an online facilitator refresher/CTC orientation for
former Bystander Intervention to the Fleet facilitators prior to initial
roll-out of CTC training materials in January 2016.
b. Completion of CFs certification training will be documented by the
CTC Task Force in the Fleet Training Management Planning System (FLTMPS).
Qualified CFs will receive credit for the course NETC-CTC-CF-CERT in their
individual training records in FLTMPS within 1-2 weeks of training
completion. Grandfathered Bystander Intervention to the Fleet CFs will
receive this credit automatically.
4. CTC Command-Level Delivery. CTC will be delivered as a face-to-face
discussion by MMTT-certified CFs.
a. Peer-to-peer training is a critical element of CTC designed to
encourage open, frank dialogue among those of similar age and experience
level. Commanding officers should define the peer groups within their
command in such a way to maximize the consistency of age, experience, and
background among group members and select facilitators from each group to
deliver this peer-level training. As a guideline, the recommended peer
groupings are junior-level (E5 and below); mid-level (E6-E8/W2-W4/O1-O4); and
senior-Level (E9/W5/O5 and above). Commanding officers (COs) may adjust or
combine peer groups based on individual command demographics.
b. Every command CTC session will be facilitated by two CFs personnel
who fall within the same peer group as the training audience. Commands may
designate multiple CFs per peer group as command size warrants. The success
of CTC training depends on the selection of exemplary and dynamic CFs who
have the ability to actively engage Sailors while delivering the CTC content.
Co-facilitation of CTC sessions is not waiverable.
c. Commands with small numbers of Navy personnel, or those with
deployed/remote personnel, may combine CTC training with other commands so
long as the peer-to-peer and co-facilitation requirements are met.
d. CTC training materials (videos, facilitator guide and supporting
material) will be mailed on DVD to all Navy commands prior to January 2016.
CFs may also access training materials online following conclusion of their
certification at a dedicated CTC site on www.milsuite.mil. Download
procedures will be provided via separate correspondence to all CFs.
5. Documentation. Completion of CTC training will be documented using
FLTMPS. Use the report group Chart the Course with course identification
number NETC-CTC and course title Chart the Course Peer Level Training to
record training via the FLTMPS learning event completion form.
6. Training Completion. CTC training will be completed no later than 30
7. Resources. Commands may access Navy CTC training information via the NPC
21st Century Sailor webpage http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-
npc/support/21st_century_sailor/pages/default.aspx. The CTC webpage will
contain up to date policy information, CFs training registration
instructions, and frequently asked questions.
8. Action Required:
a. All commands shall:
(1) Ensure at least two CFs are identified for each command peer
group and complete CFs certification training as detailed in paragraph 3 of
this NAVADMIN. Registration for CFs certification training can be completed
online at https://esams.cnic.navy.mil/esams_gen_2/loginesams.aspx.
(2) Deliver CTC training in CFs-led peer training via small group
sessions using training products provided by the CTC Task Force no later than
30 September 2016.
(3) Document CTC completion per paragraph 5 of this NAVADMIN for all
b. Joint commands shall ensure the Navy Element Commander executes CTC
training for all assigned Navy personnel in accordance with this NAVADMIN.
9. General business rules that shall be adhered to in executing the required
a. Only MMTT personnel assigned to the CTC Task Force will conduct CFs
certification training. Individual commands are not authorized to certify
their own CFs.
b. CTC training is required only for uniformed Navy personnel. Civilians
or other service personnel assigned at Navy commands are not required to
participate in CTC training but may attend at the COs discretion.
c. CTC training material will not be modified and may only be delivered
by a certified CFs.
10. Command Relationships. The CTC Task Force is the supported commander
for this Chief of Naval Operations-directed requirement. All other Navy
commands are designated as supporting commands.
