CNATT DET Whiting Field provides formal technical training for the United States Naval personnel as well as Foreign Officers and enlisted personnel in the maintenance of aircraft, aircraft systems and associated equipment. The command is also the primary advisor to Commander, Naval Air Systems Command for the design and acquisition of aviation maintenance training systems. CNATT DET Whiting Field is one of eighteen CNATT Learning Sites located throughout the world and is one of the leading organizations in today’s dynamic Navy. CNATT DET Whiting Field has a staff of thirty personnel, with an annual throughput of approximately 364 students.

CNATT DET Whiting Field Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 6001, 6005 and 6010 are located at Naval Air Station Whiting Field, Milton, Florida. MTU 6001 teaches Aviation Supply Officer Career Progression and a short course refresher for officers and senior enlisted Marines, MTU 6005 teaches the Aviation Ordnance Officer Career Progression Training and MTU 6010 teaches the Aircraft Maintenance Officer long, and short courses respectively. CNATT DET Whiting Field facilities include classrooms, learning resource centers, training devices and laboratories featuring operational computer based applications, equipment, and training equipment.

As a military training facility, CNATT DET Whiting Field does not conduct training specifically designed for certain college "levels." Through review by the American Council on Education (ACE), courses are evaluated for equivalency with civilian training in terms of semester hours and levels. The courses at CNATT DET Whiting Field can be equated to "programs for non-high school students at the post-secondary level.” Some programs are recommended for college equivalency credit at both the Lower Level (LL) and Upper Level (UL).

All students at CNATT DET Whiting Field are full-time, devoting forty contact hours each week to technical training. Except for a two-week period during the Christmas holidays, training is continuous. Courses vary in length from four weeks to fourteen weeks. Except for those courses that are perquisites for others, they convene independently of each other, and at various times of the year. There is no separately organized evening program. Evening classes are conducted as part of the standard "daytime" regime as required. A typical lesson lasts approximately 50 minutes. Normally, a 10-minute break is taken after 50 minutes of instruction. Lesson topics are discussed in class and the students are tested on the enabling objectives at the end of a particular module. During the lessons, emphasis is placed on presenting the material while encouraging the students to share relevant personal experiences. Question and answer periods are an ongoing part of the classroom discussions. Lessons are given primarily to present new or complex information and to provide students with the background knowledge they will need to participate in subsequent aircraft and laboratory exercises. Upon successful completion of programs, students are awarded certificates of completion.

COE ACCREDITATION

COE Logo

The Council on Occupational Education (COE) Self-Study evaluation team has proposed to COE that the accreditation status for the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT) be reaffirmed for six years. CNATT will receive official notification from COE on reaffirmation of its accreditation following COE's September, or possibly February, board meeting.

CNATT and its predecessor agency, NAMTRAGRU, have maintained accredited status with COE for 33 years. CNATT Detachment Whiting Field, as a Learning Site in the CNATT Domain, gained accreditation status at its establishment in 2001.

Accreditation is a status granted to an educational institution found to meet the criteria of educational quality. Accreditation has two fundamental purposes: (1) to assure the quality of the institution, and (2) to assist in the improvement of the institution. It is, therefore, important that CNATT maintain its accreditation as a status of its continual improvement process to provide the best training and education to its students.

The website for the Council on Occupational Education, an independent postsecondary accreditation body, is http://www.council.org.

ACE COLLEGE CREDIT RECOMMENDATIONS

"Since 1945, the American Council on Education (ACE) has provided a collaborative link between the U. S. Department of Defense and higher education through the review of military training and experiences for the award of equivalent college credits for members of the Armed Forces. Registrars, admissions officers, academic advisors, career counselors, and DoD Voluntary Education professionals have a basis for recognizing military educational experiences in terms of civilian academic credit through the Military Guide Online." – www.acenet.edu

ACE’s credit recommendations help college and university officials evaluate the education service members received while in the military. Please remember that these recommendations serve as guidelines only. Acceptance of ACE recommended credits is dependant on the institution’s policies and practices. They may accept all, part, or none of these credits for transfer in support of the particular program or degree being pursued. For Navy and Marine students, the Sailor/Marine/ACE/Registry/Transcript System (SMART) will reflect credits earned in the CNATT Det Whiting Field courses listed below (Online Guide at http://www.militaryguides.acenet.edu/).
