CNATT Command Picture - 2004

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 13 "Learning Centers" under the Naval Education and Training Command tasked with developing and maintaining the Sailor/Marine Training Continuum.

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 27 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.
