The U.S. Navy has subordinated the Center for Information Warfare Training’s learning sites under training commands in a move to increase oversight of the facilities.
The service branch said Tuesday that CIWT’s 12 learning sites will be renamed “information warfare training sites” and placed under the control of Information Warfare Training Commands in Virginia Beach, Corry Station, Monterey and San Diego.
CIWT detachments at Fort Gordon, Georgia and Goodfellow, Texas will continue to report directly to CIWT, the Navy added.
“The goal is to bring the sites closer to where the training happens,” said CIWT Commanding Officer Bill Lintz.
Lintz added the reorganization will work to optimize control over the quality of training and give sites “an immediate superior that can provide the greatest level of assistance.”
CIWT aligned each IWTS to an IWTC based on mission and proximity.
The center was established to provide trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services.
