SAN DIEGO – Thirteen fleet Sailors graduated from the Journeyman Communications Course (JCC) offered by Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) San Diego, April. 22.

Through the 14-week course, the Sailors learned the principles of radio frequency (RF) communications, communications systems and components, communications security, and Navy communications procedures, practices, and management; and knowledge and skills required to operate external communications suites. The course prepares students to operate the Automated Digital Network System for controlling RF assets, in accordance with standard operating procedures and appropriate technical documentation, during all conditions of readiness, with limited supervision.

“The course will help the students in regards to a more in-depth understanding of equipment and circuits,” added Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Austin Osborne, a JCC instructor. “In addition to this, it will be highly dependent on the platform or command the students go to and what equipment that command provides. That being said, the students should be able to take away the principles and troubleshooting taught in this course and apply it in the fleet regardless of their command.”

“After graduating they will have a thorough understanding of the concepts required for use with all our equipment, regardless of whether they go to a carrier or a destroyer they will understand what needs to be done and how to do it,” added Information Systems Technician 1st Class Miranda Cappetto, a JCC instructor. “

In addition, the students had positive reviews for the instructors and thanked the staff for their help throughout the course.

“The class was great when it came to VMWare,” shared Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Lawrence Zamudio, “Overall, stories about the fleet that have to do with the subject we are learning really helps ground the information.”

“Instructors were good, [they] helped us out when we couldn’t fully understand something,” commented Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Anthony Segal, a student in the course.
