We annually transform 39,000 civilians into basically trained, physically fit, well disciplined Sailors at Recruit Training Command (RTC). They are trained by a cadre of fleet experienced enlisted Sailors who must meet stringent screening standards and embody our Navy core values of honor, courage and commitment. We are continually looking for talented 2nd and 1st class petty officers, chiefs and senior chiefs to become recruit division commanders and basic naval orientation instructors, tasked with forging the next generation of Sailors.

Just as our recruits will go into every field in the Navy, our recruit division commanders and instructors come from every enlisted community throughout the fleet. While we prepare our recruit division commanders to train recruits during a rigorous 12 week course of instruction, recruit division commander candidates are expected to be physically fit, highly motivated and demonstrate outstanding leadership skills upon arrival. Every eight weeks, the recruit division commanders and basic naval orientation instructors mold multiple divisions of 88 individuals into professional, cohesive teams, ready for service in the U.S. Navy.
