This research memorandum documents the FY 1985 Master Course Reference File MCRF data file. It describes alternative ways the data can be accessed within CNA and through an analysis of these data documents institutional features of formal training. The Navy provides its personnel a considerable amount of formal schoolhouse training. The Navy Integrated Training Resources and Administration System NITRAS is the major source of data on formal training in the Navy. NITRAS was designed to provide automated capability and information on training to the Chief of Naval Education and Training CNET and other commands concerned with training activities. Because the MCRF provides the common data base for the other NITRAS files, it is an important source for understanding how Navy formal training is organized. Standardized course data elements, class schedules, and class quotas for each formal training course constitute the MCRF data.
