Established in early February of 2003, The Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT) has been working to
bring the Navy's Revolution in Training to the aviation community. CNATT is one of 14 "Learning Centers" under the
Naval Education and Training Command tasked with developing and maintaining the Sailor/Marine Training
The Chief of Naval Operations, ADM Vern Clark, who initiated the "Revolution in Training" which entailed realignment
of the Navy's Training organization, stood up CNATT. CNATT now provides single site management for Navy and Marine Corp
Aviation Technical Training.
The Pensacola based headquarters is responsible for 24 sites located throughout the Continental United States and Japan.
CNATT with a staff of over 3,000, trains more than 130,000 students annually in the US and abroad. The center is
responsible for curriculum and educational tools, as well as developing training solutions and professional development
for aviation ratings (ABE, ABF, ABH, AC, AD, AE, AG, AM, AME, AO, AS, AT, AW, AZ, PR), Airman, related Aviation
Maintenance Officer training and training for Marine Corps Aviation Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) requirements.
Seven directorates make up the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training; Functional Integration, Total Force, Career
Management, Knowledge Management, Training, Technical Support, and Resource Management.
CNATT's mission is to develop, deliver, and support aviation technical training necessary to meet validated fleet
requirements through a continuum of professional and personal growth for Sailors and Marines.

The Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT) logo is in the shape of a triangle to represent the Communities of
Practice, Learning and Interest under the Navy's Knowledge Management construct. It will be through this triad of knowledge
partnerships and various other partnerships, that Naval Aviation technical learning will achieve success in the 21st Century.
The sayings inscribed on both legs of the triangle embody Naval Aviation; Non Sibi Sed Patriae (Not for Self but for Country)
and Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful) remind Sailors and Marines that they both serve and fight not for self but for country
and are always faithful to the end. The Latin phrases also add to the artistic symbolism embodied by the lion's wings. The
wings form the arithmetic symbol of infinity, which joins with the lion's book to show a continuum of lifelong learning and
quest for knowledge.
In European and Middle-Eastern folklore, the winged lion symbolized strength, courage, and honor. The lion with an open
book is a symbol of peace; when the book is closed it symbolizes times of war. Its wings represent all facets and communities
throughout Naval Aviation.
The silhouette of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise represents the forward presence of the Navy-Marine Corps team. The
word "enterprise" means "readiness to engage in daring"action which is exactly what the CNATT mission will deliver.
Completely integrated from the beginning of aviation technical learning, this team is responsible for "launching learning
excellence"; the motto of CNATT. Countless careers will be launched by Sailors, Marines, and Civil Service employees. These
Naval Aviation professionals will have unprecedented control over the "course" they wish to navigate during their career.
Highlighted against the background of the Navy's blue and gold and the gold and scarlet of the Marine Corps, the colors of
the logo complete the vision of "one team - one fight".
