This requirement applies to Department of Navy (DoN) personnel who have or will require access to DoD or DoN computers. IA training must be taken annually, no later than September 1st each year, as a condition of being granted and retaining access to DoD and DoN computer systems.

For students reporting to MSTCPAC, it is recommended to book lodging early through the Navy Gateway Inns and Suites – Naval Base San Diego. If you are issued a Certificate of Non-Availability to stay in town and your intermediate stop in San Diego is 31 days or more, you are subject to the 75% rule in the JTR Chapter 4 TDY Part B 4250 a and B (1-7).  To clarify, you will only be receiving the 75% flat rate; you will NOT receive the other 25% upon liquidation of your travel claim.
Surrounding San Diego hotels charge various rates for rooms based on the day of the week. If the daily rate is greater than your lodging allowance you will NOT receive any more money for this time; it will be an out-of-pocket expense. Plan accordingly.
