Our History

Fleet Intelligence Training Center (FITC) originates as the Fleet Air Intelligence Training Center, Pacific in San Diego.

Naval Communications Technician School transfers from Imperial Beach, California; first class of communications technicians, later called cryptologic technicians, begins training in at Naval Communications Training Center at Corry Field in Pensacola, Florida.

Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) changes the name to Naval Technical Training Center, Corry Station.

Consolidated Navy Electronic Warfare (EW) School opens at Corry.

Navy and Marine Corps Intelligence Training Center (NMITC) in Virginia Beach begins training the intelligence community.

"Chief of Naval Education and Training presents the Training Excellence Award to NTTC Corry Station" -

Corry Station base functions are re-aligned under Naval Air Station Pensacola as part of regionalization.

Center for Naval Cryptology, also known as Center for Cryptology (CC) Corry Station, stands up as part of the Navy's Revolution in Training. With a focus on cryptology and electronic warfare technician ratings and related officer communities, the center was one of the Navy's 15 learning centers.
"Center for Naval Cryptology No Secret" -

Center for Information Dominance (CID) Corry Station is created by the merger of the Center for Information Technology (CIT) and CC Corry Station. One of the latest initiatives in the Revolution in Training, the move integrated the training responsibilities for the four key disciplines of information dominance at the time - exploit, attack, defend and operate - under one learning center. Prior to the merger, CIT was responsible for the training of personnel specializing in network operations, while CC Corry Station had oversight responsibilities for training of signals intelligence.
"Center for Information Dominance Established" -

CID is recognized with the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) Training Excellence Award.
"NETC Announces Education, Training Excellence Award Winners" -

Information Dominance Corps is created.

The Navy combines multiple organizations together. The Center for Naval Intelligence is disestablished, which realigns NMITC and FITC under CID. With the exception of oceanography and meteorology, training for all disciplines that made up the Information Dominance Corps is now under one command.
Two new schoolhouses at Corry Station and Monterey officially stand up. "Center for Information Dominance Establishes Two New Commands" -

The Council on Occupational Education acknowledges CID for completing 40 years of accredited institution status.
"Center for Information Dominance Recognized for 40 Years of Accreditation" -

With the CNO's emphasis on information IN warfare and information AS warfare, CID transitions to the new name of Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT). Information dominance evolves to information warfare. Now we represent the culmination of complimentary forces coming together to train information warfare professionals. Our four units are renamed Information Warfare Training Command.
"Center for Information Dominance Changes Name" -

CIWT realigns its learning sites under the center's four large school houses, effective Jan. 1.
"CIWT Announces Command Reorganization" -

CIWT is awarded the overall White "T" Training Excellence Award as the best learning center in the NETC domain.
"CIWT Earns Highest Training Excellence Award" -
