CHAPTER  9 OPPORTUNITY  FOR  EDUCATION You  will  continually  receive  training  throughout your  career  as  a  naval  officer.    You  must  make  the choice   to   take   advantage   of   the   Navy’s   many educational  opportunities  that  are  compatible  with your  personal  desires  and  chosen  career  plans.    The subspecialty  coding  system  discussed  in  chapter  1 signifies   the   importance   the   Navy   places   on education. Subspecialty  codes  identify  a  person’s level of education or skill in specific fields. EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE The  Navy  offers  educational  opportunities  to  its members both on a full-time and part-time basis.  The Navy  encourages  you  to  participate  in  off-duty education  while  on  active  duty.   The  Navy  provides several programs and offices designed to assist you in your educational goals. NAVY CAMPUS The  Navy  Campus  Program  can  assist  you  in continuing  your  education.     The  Navy  Campus Program  is  a  voluntary  educational  program  staffed by  a  worldwide  network  of  educational  advisers  at major commands. Navy Campus opens doors to civilian colleges for military  personnel  and  enables  them  to  pursue  all levels of education wherever they are stationed.  Navy personnel  may  obtain  academic  credit  from  civilian schools  for  certain  educational  or  work  experiences completed   while   performing   normal   military assignments.  Refer to your local Navy Campus office for more information about this program. EDUCATIONAL SERVICES OFFICE Your   local   Educational   Services   Office   is   an excellent   source   of   information   concerning educational  programs.    In  fact,  many  junior  officers serve  as  the  educational  services  officer  (ESO)  as  a collateral   duty. The   more   you   know   about educational programs, the more you can help yourself and the people who work for you. DEFENSE ACTIVITY FOR NONTRADITIONAL EDUCATION SUPPORT The   Defense   Activity   for   Nontraditional Education  Support  (DANTES)  is  a  Department  of Defense  (DOD)  agency.     It  supports  the  voluntary educational   programs   of   each   military   service, including  Reserve  personnel.     DOD  authorized  the establishment of DANTES after the disestablishment of  the  old  United  States  Armed  Forces  Institute (USAFI).  DANTES is located at the Naval Education and Training Program Management Support Activity, Pensacola, Florida.  Some of the services provided by DANTES are as follows: Providing  a  wide  range  of  examination  and certification programs Operating   an   independent   study   support system Providing   for   the   evaluation   of   military learning experiences Providing   educational   and   informational materials Providing   support   for   new   educational development activities Refer to your local Navy Campus or Educational Services   Office   for   more   information   about DANTES. TUITION ASSISTANCE The  Tuition  Assistance  (TA)  Program  provides in-service   financial   assistance   to   all   personnel wishing to take part in voluntary off-duty education. It does not affect Veterans’ Affairs (VA) entitlements. A  complete  listing  of  eligible  tuition  assistance institutions  is  in   Accredited   Institutions   of   Post Secondary Education.   See your local Navy Campus or Educational Services Office for more information. 9-1
