NAMTS Support

Are you familiar with the NAMTS Program?  Valkyrie was recently awarded a contract to support the effort.

The NAMTS program was established by the Chief of Naval Operations in the late 1990’s to improve shipboard organic maintenance capability and material self‐sufficiency, as Sailor knowledge and proficiency in performing shipboard repairs are essential to mission accomplishment. It provides formal shipboard systems and equipment repair training for over 2,400 Sailors assigned to intermediate level maintenance activities in five geographical regions; Norfolk, VA; Mayport, FL; San Diego, CA; Bremerton, WA and Pearl Harbor, HI. NAMTS is a program under the Commander, Navy Regional Maintenance Center (CNRMC).

Sailors at Southeast Regional Maintenance Center (SERMC) in Mayport, FL, earned new qualifications through NAMTS on January 22, when they were visited by Vice Admiral William Hilarides, who presented each of the twenty-one sailors with a certificate of completion at a special awards ceremony.  Our very own Valkyrian, Mr. Osbert Teeka-Singh, serves as SERMC NAMTS coordinator.  “NAMTS is about professional development,” said Teek.  “It’s about hands-on experience that is more in-depth than what these Sailors would otherwise learn in a classroom.”
