Abstract : The educational services office has evolved to an efficient and comprehensive point of contact for Navy personnel because of the Navy's many organizational changes in the past. Not too many years ago, questions about educational information were answered by personnel assigned to the personnel office or ship's office. The Navy realized the need for a specialist in the education field. For this reason the educational services officer billet was established. Although the field of education and training is a function of the Personnelman rating, each command is directed to have an educational services officer (ESO). This requirement is found in the Standard Organization and Regulations of the U.S. Navy (SORN), OPNAVINST 3120.32B. There are only a few full-time educational services officer billets in the Navy. Depending on the command, the job of ESO could be assigned to an officer or enlisted person. Normally sea commands assign junior officers or senior petty officers the job of ESO as a collateral duty. The only training available for ESOs are educational services officer workshops, conducted by Navy Campus, and this training manual (TRAMAN) and its associated nonresident training course (NRTC). This self-study package will acquaint officers and enlisted personnel with the duties and responsibilities of the ESO; the correct procedures for establishing and managing an educational services office; the various educational programs and benefits available to military personnel; the Naval Correspondence Course Program; the preparations necessary for advancement; the Navy Enlisted Advancement System; and examination procedures for Navy advancement examinations.
