The U.S. Navy has released two new mobile applications that work to deliver “anytime, anywhere” access to resources for mandatory sailor training on records management and privacy and personally identifiable information awareness.
Tracen Technologies helped build the apps with the Navy under the branch’s Sea Warrior program in an effort to aid users in completing required Navy general military training, the service branch said April 19.
“The mobile apps are an extension of our training to offer alternate methods to our workforce,” said Rear Adm. Mike White, commander of Naval Education and Training Command.
“We want the resources readily available and at your fingertips,” he added.
The Navy said the apps are available for free on Google Play and the App Store for active duty, reserve service members and civil service employees who require training.
They are required to complete PII training by Aug. 31 and RM training by Dec. 31.
A certificate of completion will also be sent to the user’s Electronic Training Jacket or to the Navy Training Management Systems, which the user can send to a supervisor, the service branch added.
