Surface Warfare Officers School Command (SWOS or SWSCOLCOM), located at Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island, is a "Center of Excellence" for surface warfare – where we take pride in being the focal point for training the officers and enlisted Sailors who man and fight our ships.

We work diligently to train warfighters and intelligently apply state-of-the-art technology in classrooms and trainers. Our greatest assets remain the outstanding men and women who instruct and study here. We are warriors who go down to the sea in ships to defend our nation, and we are the keepers of the essence of our great Navy and the maintainers of freedom throughout the world.
