Military Training

The goal of military training is to instill and reinforce the Navy's Core Values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment with the basic skills of training in a team environment. You will be academically, physically and emotionally challenged. RTC will prepare you for life in the Navy.

Your first week will be taken up by medical, dental and administration screenings. This processing week - or P-Days - will fly by as you are ready for your training to start. The first two weeks of training are very difficult: your body and mind will have to adjust quickly to new rigors. You must memorize your chain of command, the general orders and rank recognition. You will stand security watches in which you will challenge all persons on or near your post.

During the next four weeks of training, you will be working-out regularly and will quickly notice your strength and stamina improving. Much of your day will be spent in class or in a hands-on technical training environment. Teamwork, self-discipline and attention to detail are the keys to successfully completing this stage of your training, preparing you for challenges that lie ahead.
