Data were collected from all available sources to determine what the training requirements would be for an individual enlisted sailor at Fleet Readiness Center FRC Mid-Atlantic. This called for collecting data from FRC Mid-Atlantic and from sources available at the Naval Postgraduate School. FRC Mid-Atlantic provided data on qualifications, licenses, and medical training required by all rates within the command. This research was conducted on training requirements data for nine individual ratings Aviation Boatswains Mate-Aircraft handling ABH, Aviation Machinist Mate AD, Aviation Electricians Mate AE, Aviation Structural Mechanic AM, Aviation Ordnanceman AO, Aviation Support Equipment Technician AS, Aviation Electronics Technician AT, Aviation Maintenance Administrationman AZ, and Logistics Specialist LS. The data were received in their raw form. The time to complete each requirement was converted from months or weeks into hours per year. The author assumed that each individual had an average of 19 days per month to be trained, and that the training would last 8 hours per day. The training was divided into four categories Navy-wide, Qualifications, Licenses, and Medical. Results showed that Navy-wide training and medical training consume the least amount of time, and that three specific rates are required to do more training than the other rates at the command. In particular, the Aviation Support Equipment Technician AS is required to complete over 36,000 hours of combined training. This amount of training is of great concern to the commands leadership, since an individual only has a little over 1,800 hours in a given year to complete hisher assigned training.
