We designed LaDRs to be living documents from the very beginning," said Tom Smith, Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) enlisted education coordinator.
LaDRs are fleet-focused products that provide guidance to Sailors along a learning and development continuum specific to each rating.
All rating-specific LaDRs were developed by subject matter experts at the NETC learning centers and include input from the enlisted community managers at the Bureau of Naval Personnel and have been validated by the fleet.
Sailors new to the Navy and early in their careers will find that LaDRs provide a solid technical and analytical foundation that will support tactical and operational competencies.
Additional information about LaDRs is detailed in NAVADMIN 258/10, available through the Naval Personnel Command Web site at www.
The review requirement for the LaDRs is annually, but if necessary, the training managers can update as required if something changes within the year.
LaDRs also highlight a wide variety of education opportunities, including tuition assistance, Navy College Program for Afloat College Education (NCPACE), rating-relevant degrees, and scholarship programs, as well as certification and licenses supported through the Navy Credentialing Opportunities Online (COOL) and United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP).
Rating representatives assigned to the different Navy centers, such as the CSS, are required to review the LaDRs annually, but can update as required if something changes within the year.
