Our training programs are only for Sailors in the U.S. Navy, other service members for joint programs and some international military programs, as well as some civilian government employees. If you are in the United States and interested in the Navy, contact your local military recruiter.

Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) does not confer degrees (if applicable, search online for U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Naval War College, or Naval Postgraduate School, which all do confer degrees but do not fall under NETC). In job applications, sometimes people write they have a degree or equivalent in a subject. If you are trying to verify if the individual completed specific training, the official record of training completed and duty stations assigned is the DD-214 form, which the individual receives upon their discharge. The veteran may also choose to provide you with his or her VMET (Verification of Military Experience and Training), DD Form 2586, which is an overview of a service member's military experience and training, obtained from https://www.dodtap.mil/login.html or from the Veterans Employment Center on the VA's eBenefits website. The military experience and training listed on the VMET is verified as official. Another useful document the veteran may provide you is their Joint Services Transcript from https://jst.doded.mil/smart/signIn.do, which is an academically accepted document approved by the American Council on Education (ACE) to validate a service member's military occupational experience and training along with the corresponding ACE college credit recommendations. The individual can request online delivery to post-secondary institutions or complete an "Official JST Consent and Request Form" at https://jst.doded.mil/JST_SPEC.pdf with the employer information and email to jst@doded.mil. The individual must provide you with these documents to verify training.
