SUBJ/FY-18 GENERAL MILITARY TRAINING REQUIREMENTS WITH NAVY CIVILIAN TRAINING
REF/A/MSG/CNO WASHINGTON DC/271514ZMAR17//
NARR/REF A IS NAVADMIN 072/17, GENERAL MILITARY TRAINING OVERHAUL.
REF B IS SECNAVINST 12410.25A, CIVILIAN EMPLOYEE TRAINING AND CAREER
REF C IS MEMORANDUM, MANDATORY TRAINING FOR DEPARTMENT OF NAVY (DON) CIVILIAN
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN supersedes reference (a) and outlines the General
Military Training (GMT) requirements for FY-18 to include guidance for Navy
Civilian Mandatory Training.
2. Vision for GMT and Navy Civilian Mandatory Training. To the greatest
extent possible, commanders should conduct training using discussions led by
command and deckplate leaders. This concept of leader-led training puts
training back in the hands of Sailors, enabling a powerful and personal focus
on integrity, accountability, and character through an interactive learning
dialog. We are seeking to eliminate the passive, impersonal, and ineffective
approaches to training that were often inherent in legacy computer- based
training products. Some mandatory topics have specific requirements for
completion which deviate from this general guidance. In those cases, the
requirements are specifically stated on the GMT webpage or Department of the
Navy (DON) Office of Civilian Human Resources (OCHR) Portal.
3. GMT requirements. (Military Only)
a. The following is a complete list of mandatory GMT. Commanders are
responsible for certification of training completion. There is no requirement
to log accomplishment of GMT training in Fleet Training Management and
Planning System or Total Workforce Management Services. However, commands
are encouraged to keep local records of training completion.
(1) Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Awareness*
(2) Equal Opportunity/Sexual Harassment/Grievance Procedures
(3) Suicide Prevention
(4) Antiterrorism Level 1 Awareness
(5) Counterintelligence Awareness and Reporting
(6) Combating Trafficking in Persons
(7) Cyber Awareness Challenge (computer-based only)
(8) Operations Security
(9) DON Annual Privacy Training
(10) Records Management
*The complete standardized content of the SAPR course should be given
face-to-face in a classroom environment.
b. Based on need, commands may choose to include optional GMT topics. A
list of optional topics and associated training material are available on the
4. Navy Civilian Mandatory Training. The official list of mandatory
training for Navy civilians and supervisors of Navy civilians (both military
and civilian) is maintained by DON OCHR at
ry-Training.aspx. References (b) and (c) germane. Many of the Navy civilian
mandatory training topics can be completed in combined military-civilian
training sessions, if desired. The GMT webpage lists the mandatory training
topics that can be conducted in combined sessions.
5. Additional information
a. GMT webpage. The Navy GMT webpage is a comprehensive source of
training materials and information for GMT. To access the GMTwebpage go to
My Navy Portal (MNP) at https://my.navy.mil. Once logged in to MNP, select
the Professional Resources drop down menu, then select General Skills
Training, and then select GMT from the navigation menu on the left to access
the Navy GMT page.
b. Command and deckplate leader discussions (Military and Navy
Civilians). Command and deckplate leader discussions may be conducted at
quarters, all-hands calls, or divisional training, etc. For these
discussions, printable training materials provide an outline for the conduct
of training and serve as springboards to elicit discussion to the point that
the leader is satisfied that the learning objectives are understood. It is
not the intent for commands to create new training lesson plans to support
the accomplishment of GMT. Printable training materials are available for
military or civilians on the GMT webpage.
c. GMT Calendar. A notional schedule for GMT completion is provided on
the GMT webpage for the convenience of commands. Commands are responsible for
assigning and completing mandatory GMT during the fiscal year, and they
should develop a GMT schedule that makes sense based on their unique command
d. The point of contact for GMT questions or feedback is Mr. Mark
Oberley, NETC N522, who can be reached at (850)452-4884 or via e-mail at
gmt.distribution(at)navy.mil. The point of contact for Navy civilian
training questions is Ms. Nalo Washington, OPNAV N1C, who can be reached at
(703)604-0324 or via e-mail at nalo.washington(at)navy.mil.
6. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or 30 September
2018, whichever occurs first.
