  1. 1. NCO LEMOORE NCPACE ESO TRAINING POC: CYNTHIA MOON PHONE: 559-998-3857 EMAIL: I. OVERVIEW OF NCPACE 1. The Navy College Program for Afloat College Education (NCPACE) is an integral part of the Navy College Program. The Navy’s NCPACE program offers participating Sailors (officers and enlisted) high quality learning opportunities and experiences from post secondary institutions accredited by an accrediting body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. The Naval Education and Training Professional Development Technology Center (NETPDTC), located in Pensacola, Florida, is responsible for developing, executing and administering NCPACE. Sailors can continue and or complete course work associated with certificate or degree requirements under NCPACE. 2. NCPACE offers academic skills, undergraduate and graduate level courses to Sailors assigned full-time to ships, and to Sailors who travel between ship and shore (those in deployable, sea-going UIC’s. Selected remote sites as listed under Definitions are authorized to participate in NCPACE Distance Learning DL courses only. There are two separate contracts under NCPACE: Instructor-Led and Distance Learning. The Instructor-Led IL courses are taught by resident instructors for ships able to berth civilian instructors. Distance Learning DL courses are provided for all ships and remote sites. Distance Learning courses are offered via CD-Rom, paper based and VTC. II. PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY 1. Eligibility includes personnel assigned to U.S. Naval vessels and deployable squadrons assigned a Unit Identification Code (UIC) with a sea duty type code of 2 or 4. U.S. Navy personnel permanently assigned to those commands including U.S. Marine Corps personnel assigned as ship’s company are eligible to participate in NCPACE. Navy personnel on temporary assignment to the command participating in NCPACE are eligible to participate as long as they have sufficient time to complete course work while assigned to the command. Embarked Marines on a naval vessel may participate in Instructor Led courses on a space available basis after the 10 Navy minimum enrollments has been met. 2. All active duty personnel assigned to U.S. Naval Ships (USNS) under the cognizance of the Military Sealift Command (MSC) are eligible to participate as long as minimum enrollments are met for DL and/or IL courses. 3. NCPACE is designed for deployed units. Commissioned squadrons and ships in a non- deployable status (aircraft transition, major ships overhaul, etc., for 9 months or more) are not eligible to participate in NCPACE while in that status. 4. Ships moored within a shipyard must be able to provide instructor berthing and messing facilities throughout the duration of the term dates to be eligible to participate in IL NCPACE. If berthing/messing is not available on board or becomes unavailable after courses begin, the

To be eligible to participate in DL NCPACE, first time enrollees must be counseled by NCO staff and are limited to only one course during the first term. After successful completion of the first DL course, Sailors are authorized to enroll in a maximum of two courses per term. Only the selected remote sites as listed under Definitions (page 15) are authorized to participate in NCPACE. 6. Eligibility to participate in NCPACE is solely at the discretion of the Navy and may be changed at any time. III. NCPACE CONTRACTORS/SUBCONTRACTORS 1.
