You should refer to your commands Enlisted
Distribution and Verification Report (EDVR) to
identify the different rates/ratings, and the number of
personnel in each rate/rating, that your office must
support. Using EDVR data, you should be able to
accurately project the types and numbers of courses
youll need for a given year. Keep in mind that certain
courses such as the military requirements courses
(such as the Basic Military Requirements for PO3,
PO2) and apprenticeship courses (AN, FN, SN) are
used by most ratings.
How to Order
Most courses (all courses in Part 1 of the Catalog
of Nonresident Training Courses [NAVEDTRA
12061]) must be requisitioned from the Naval
Inventory Control Point (NAVICP-PHILA) in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Requisitions must be
forwarded in the electronic MILSTRIP (Military
Standard Requisitioning and Issue Procedures) format
(fig. 4-1). NAVSUP Publication 409 (MILSTRIP/
MILSTRAP Desk Guide ) provides guidance in
preparing electronic MILSTRIP requisitions. Your
supply department should be able to provide you with
assistance when completing the MILSTRIP. Part 1 of
NAVEDTRA 12061 also contains good information
about a MILSTRIP requisition. Ordering instructions
for other courses are listed separately in Parts 2
through 9 of the catalog.
The following tips will help you maintain an
adequate supply of courses for your command:
Anticipate your commands needs. Place
orders as far in advance as possible.
Make sure your MILSTRIP requisition is
accurate. Double-check all fields. Remember:
GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT! Use the
MILSTRIP Handbook, and refer to the sample
MILSTRIP in NAVEDTRA 12061.
Use the fastest and most direct means

M I L S T R I P
Have a feel for about how long it should take
for an order to arrive.
Track all MILSTRIP requisitions to make
sure each order is filled. Commands with good
track records on receiving their orders on time
have an aggressive tracking system in place.
Who publishes the Catalog of Nonresident
Courses received by the command should be given
to the students in a timely manner. The ESO should
advise the students to follow the procedures outlined in
the front matter of each course assignment booklet.
The students may refer freely to texts and reference
materials in completing their courses. They may seek
advice and instructions from others, or give completed
solutions to anyone else taking the same course.
All classified courses are released only to the
custody of the students commanding officer. Reserve
units commanded by inactive reserve officers DO
NOT qualify for custody. Before ordering a classified
course, ESOs should ensure:
The student has a legitimate need for the course
and the appropriate security clearance.
Safeguards are available to provide required
protection for the course.
Classified courses are stowed, controlled, and
destroyed in the same manner as other classified
