NRTC Content. Some NRTCs are occupational;
that is, they are developed for specific ratings (i.e.,
MN, BM, QM, etc.) or communities of ratings with
electricity/electronics: ET, EM, AT, STG, etc.). Other
courses cover military knowledge information and are
applicable to all ratings. Both occupational and
military knowledge NRTCs often refer the learner to
other publications for additional or detailed
NRTC Formats. Texts and course assignments
may be issued as merged documents or as two or more
separate publications. Some NRTCs are issued as two
or more volumes if necessary to adhere to binding
restrictions; others are issued as a series of modules
if the subject matter is related. NRTCs are designed
and delivered in formats that best suit the learning
environment and needs of the target audience and
efficient management of Navy resources.
