Information Warfare Training Command Virginia Beach

Report to Building 420, Layton Hall, NLT 7:00a.m. on the first day of training for course indoctrination. If residing off Dam Neck Annex, plan accordingly for traffic delays entering the base during peak hours (6:30 am - 8:00 am). The first two rows of parking at Building 420 are reserved for staff members; students should park beyond this area.

  • If you are authorized for individual billeting, make reservations at the Navy Gateway Inns and Suites Dam Neck Annex (1-877-NAVY-BED).
  • In cases of non-availability, several hotels are within 10 miles of Dam Neck Annex.
  • Students should verify the lodging type authorized via orders before committing funds and seeking reimbursement from the government

Personal electronic devices (PEDs) (e.g., phones, laptops, digital media players) are not permitted in Building 420; limited storage exists for PEDs. Students must conduct a self-check prior to entering Building 420 to avoid a command security violation. All seized PEDs will be forensically searched by the security manager to ensure the absence of classified material prior to being returned to the service member. To further protect classified material and reduce the risk of unauthorized disclosure, students are not permitted to bring large bags (e.g., book bags, gym bags, oversized purses) into Building 420.

All students will report with a copy of their orders and, if possible, medical and dental records. Any administrative need (such as travel claims or annual leave) may require additional documentation; students should bring all supporting documents.

Students are administratively assigned to either Training Support Center (TSC) Hampton Roads (this includes, but is not limited to, Sailors attending ‘A’ school or the Naval Intelligence Officer Basic Course) or their parent command (this includes personnel attending a course in a Temporary Additional Duty status and orders to return to their command upon course completion).

  • Sailors will report in the Navy Service / Khaki uniform on the first day of class, unless instructed otherwise by staff.
  • Sailors wear Navy Working Uniform Type I (digital blue pattern) Monday through Thursday and Navy Service / Khaki uniform on Friday.
  • Graduations during the summer are held in Summer Whites; graduations not held during the summer occur in Service Dress Blues.
