TSC CHECK-IN PROCESS
Sailors should arrange their own transportation from the airport to TSC Great Lakes. Upon arrival, service members need to have their orders stamped at TSC Great Lakes in building 3 and obtain a check-in sheet before going to the Bachelor Enlisted Quarters in building 380 for room assignment. Depending on when they arrive, Sailors will continue with the check-in process and report to school as directed by their orders.

For afterhours questions or emergencies, contact the SWOSU Command Duty Officer - 847-257-3363 or TSC Command Duty Officer - 847-561-6492. Below is a list of “C” schools provided by SWOSU. Click HERE for the desired school for CANTRAC and pre-check in requirements.

Looking to make a difference? We need fleet feedback to improve the quality and content of instruction we provide to new and fleet returnee Sailors. This process starts with a Human Performance Requirement Review (HPRR) conducted with subject matter experts (SMEs) from across the waterfront.

A HPPR is a process to revalidate individual training requirements or identify new training requirements as they apply to a rating, grade, community, course, systems configuration, or fleet operating procedures. Ultimately, the HPPR's review training so it meets current and future fleet requirements, and gives Sailors the opportunity to positively impact fleet readiness.

For more information on this schedule contact the SWOS HPRR Coordinator at (401) 841-4968.

The ombudsman is a volunteer, appointed by the commanding officer, to serve as an information link between command leadership and Navy families. Ombudsmen are trained to disseminate information both up and down the chain of command, including official Department of the Navy and command information, command climate issues, local quality of life improvement opportunities.

They also provide resource referrals when needed and are instrumental in assisting in resolving family issues. The command ombudsman is appointed by and works under the guidance of the commanding officer who determines the priorities of the program.

Upcoming events are publicized in the Ombudsman Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/swosu.ombudsman/.
