FORT GORDON, Ga. (Sept. 18, 2018) Cryptologic Technician (Collection) 1st Class Justin Freeman, an instructor from the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) Detachment Fort Gordon, prepares to facilitate training to Navy Information Operations Command Georgia Sailors. During a six-week period, spanning through July and August, CIWT Det. Fort Gordon instructors created over 200 slides consisting of relevant information from the CTR rating bibliographies and rating training manuals to help Sailors prepare for the September advancement examination cycle.  Over a three-week period for three days each week, the training was delivered to the NIOC Georgia Sailors in one hour blocks of classroom facilitation.  (U.S. Navy photo/Released)

Whether you are inbound or contemplating a transfer here, you will discover that Information Warfare Training Site (IWTS) Fort Eisenhower is a challenging and rewarding duty station.

Fort Eisenhower is located in north central Georgia and is within easy driving distance of Charleston, Myrtle Beach, and other cities along the east coast. Augusta is the second largest city in Georgia with a population of nearly half a million, but still manages to display the feel of a small town. It is also home to the Masters Golf tournament. Friendly people, an overabundance of first-class amenities, fine dining, and a growing arts community are all factors that contribute to a superb quality of life and underscore why so many people choose to serve and retire here. Housing choices range from affordable, quality houses and apartments, to modest homes on acreage, to luxurious residences in gated country clubs. Temporary quarters, family housing, and barracks are also available on base.

Activities and programs abound for youth, teens, and adults. Fort Eisenhower’s Family and Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) website offers a variety of programs and services for single or unaccompanied Sailors and their families, including computers, games, trips, a golf course, bowling, child care, camping, fishing, riding stables, and much more! You can shop at a modern, well-stocked commissary and the Post Exchange.

Finally, remember to regularly inform your sponsor and command about your travel plans, especially if you encounter emergencies along the way or cannot arrive safely or as scheduled.

We look forward to your safe arrival and to welcoming you to IWTS Fort Eisenhower. You will enjoy living here, being part of our family, and working with a winning team of professionals.

Fort Eisenhower is located in Navy Region Southeast.  The winter uniform shift occurs in November and the summer uniform period typically begins in March in accordance with guidance from the regional commander.  The Uniform Shop on base does not adequately stock Navy uniforms, so please ensure you have the proper uniform items. You can order online at the Navy Exchange Uniform Support Center or call 1-800-368-4088.

Reporting Procedures

Temporary Additional Duty (TEMADD), Permanent Change of Station (PCS), Active Duty for Training (ACDUTRA) orders, or Catalog of Navy Training Courses (CANTRAC) reservations are required for all courses. The orders must identify course number and title, student's name, rate/rank and social security number.

Students who arrive on class convening day, report directly to building 25706 for further information, muster and class-up instructions.

Students who arrive for schools must meet course prerequisites or may be returned to their parent command. You must ensure that your prospective student meets all prerequisites or that the training course manager approved your waiver request. Students must also meet obligated service requirements per the MILPERSMAN and/or the Enlisted Transfer Manual.

Command Obligations

In order to improve performance and minimize interference with school-related requirements, it is recommended that students attending formal courses become exempt from regular duty requirements.


Working uniforms are required on the first day of class (E-6 and below: Navy Working Uniform; E-7 and above: Khakis). Students must comply with Navy standards of dress and grooming.

Class Attendance

Students attending courses of instruction without TEMADD orders remain under the administrative control of the parent command. The parent command shall ensure that the student reports to class on time each day as assigned.


A breach of discipline on liberty or duty will result in immediate disciplinary action, which may include disenrollment and return to parent command.


Leave, except for emergency leave, will not be granted to students. Modification to orders authorizing leave will not be honored unless received in writing prior to a student's scheduled departure date.


Fort Eisenhower has three Army dining facilities, as well as other fast-food restaurants and a Post Exchange food court.


Classroom locations are within walking distance of barracks.  Out-of-area students arriving at Augusta Regional Airport should contact the IWTS Fort Eisenhower CDO at (706) 421-4726 to inquire on the availability of military transportation to building 25706. Otherwise, a commercial taxi may be taken.
