dc.description.abstractThis thesis investigates the possibility of a training gap between course content at the Navy Recruit Training Command (RTC) and the needs of the fleet. The focus is on the internal and external environments that may drive training decisions and curriculum changes at RTC. General Detail (GENDET) seamen with less than two years of service were studied to reflect the direct effects of RTC's mission and to determine RTC effectiveness in transforming civilians to sailors and meeting fleet needs. This study found that RTC appears to function in a political/reactive configuration, which may drive many of the curriculum changes. RTC's curriculum is designed as a military socialization process as part of the transformation process into the Navy. RTC does not, however, appear to instill work ethic, pride in self and the Navy institution, or respect for authority. The fleet desires sailors with the afpremertioned attributes. Additionally, a comparative analysis was conducted between the current RTC curriculum and the Navy Enlisted Occupational Classification System (NEOCS). NEOCS determines Naval Standards for knowledge, skills, and abilities based on each pay grade and rating. It was found that RTC should review NEOCS to incorporate more hands-on training, all recruits should be put in leadership roles while at RTC, Recruit Division Commander (RDC) training time is not standardized, and RTC should review the RDC Excellence Award program.en_US
