Navy Afloat Maintenance
Training Strategy (NAMTS) Support
Navy Afloat Maintenance Training Strategy (NAMTS) was established in 1998, by the Chief of Naval Operations to improve battlegroup organic maintenance capability and material self-sufficiency. Commander, Navy Regional Maintenance Center (CNRMC) trains Sailors through the NAMTS Program by utilizing I-Level hands-on maintenance production to “forge maintenance warriors,” who are competent and confident in their ability to own, maintain and operate their shipboard equipment. CNRMC, the Regional Maintenance Centers (RMC) and Naval Shipyard Intermediate Maintenance Facilities (IMF) are collaborating on three I-Level “value streams” to form the Navy’s largest “SEA” school:
· Maintenance Competency Dev.
· Material Readiness Support
· Shop Production
While assigned to a RMC or IMF, NAMTS trains Sailors in one of 21 mostly Hull, Mechanical and Electrical (HM&E) Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) Codes through hands-on shop production maintenance. Upon completion of their shore assignments, the Sailors are assigned to fill specific NAMTS NEC coded billets.
