Enlisted Learning Continuum
The learning continuum provides opportunities for Sailors to develop professionally by focusing on the practice and business of Navy Medicine in both the operational and MTF settings. Basic entry level Sailorization (i.e. HM "A" School, Advancement Examination preparation, Center for Naval Leadership courses, FMSS and other Basic "C" Schools, 1st permanent duty station training) are the primary focus for E1-E4 Sailors. For those in the E5-E6 paygrades, there are a number of advanced courses, and executive courses are available for E7-E9. These are delivered through resident (in-house), the web via Navy e-Learning (accessible through Navy Knowledge Online), or through correspondence/CD ROM. Personnel are encouraged to explore and complete courses who wish to take them earlier in their career, or complete courses that are targeted to a billet or job rather than paygrade (i.e. courses in NKO).
Watch for further development of the Five Vector Model--many of these courses may soon reside or be accessible through the Professional Development Vector of the 5VM.
Have a fine "professionally developed" Navy Day!
