Not just for kids, says NAVSAFENVTRACEN > United States Navy > News-Stories
The training center located on Naval Station Norfolk, provides education and training to military and civilian personnel of the Navy and Marine Corps in occupational safety, industrial hygiene, environmental protection and management emergencies. Their program leads to better operational readiness, safer and healthier workplaces, stewardship through compliance with applicable regulations, reduced workers’ compensation costs, and more effective mission.
“Every individual in the Navy beyond our training center lifeline is a potential student in our eyes. Over the past six months we have begun the process of validating the foundation of our program, the training center offers nearly 40 courses available online and in person,” said Amanda Carter, Learning Standards Manager, NAVSAFENVTRACEN. “Some courses you may already be familiar with, such as Afloat Safety Programs,” Carter said. “Other courses include Fire Protection and Life Safety, Accident Investigation, Navy Ergonomics Curriculum, Machinery and Machinery Guarding Standards, and Respiratory Protection Program Management. “The course catalog and course descriptions are available on our website,” she said. “However, we continue to evaluate our classes with an emphasis on the three ‘Cs’ – Correct Training, Correct Time and Correct Location,” Carter said.
Chief Logistics Specialist (LSC) Scott Jarvis is a 12-year Navy veteran and instructor for the Hazardous Materials Control and Management (HMC&M) course.
“There’s always a lot of turnover in the Navy, this course will give your SUPPO, HAZO and HAZMAT supervisor the tools they need to understand the inner workings of the S-9 division,” says Jarvis. “In addition to being a requirement for the Hazmat Supervisor, I believe all S-9 Division personnel should sign up to have a better understanding of the organization’s processes.”
Jarvis wants the naval company to know that staff are working tirelessly to ensure courses remain current and information is accessible with the delivery of instructions.
“We are currently in the process of implementing new ideas to bring this material to the fleet,” says Jarvis. “Our courses are not reserved for those who hold positions such as hazardous materials supervisors, where necessary. Taking one of our courses will help your command become safer and more efficient. »

Training center management and instructors emphasize the importance of registrant participation in online and in-person training. Those who register but do not participate take a potential quota from someone else in the naval enterprise. Naval Security Command will continue to highlight the courses available at the training center over the coming months, to help the fleet become familiar with the courses and their applicability in the naval enterprise.
“I can’t stress enough the importance of the courses we teach, but we often wonder what else we should be teaching as our operating environments evolve and new equipment comes online, presenting new hazards. for our sailors and marines,” said Cmdr. Charles Wilhite, Commander, NAVSAFENVTRACEN. “With the Naval Safety Command mandate to conduct risk/adherence assessments, it really gives us at the training center another metric to assess regarding the Navy and Marine Corps organizations as a whole. This information will allow us to consider additional topics to add to the training curriculum ensuring that we are holistically protecting the fighter,” Wilhite said.
