The following are some tipsto set your new Sailors up for success:• Sailors should be given a career development board as soon as possible when checking in; whetherthey are fresh from A-School or on the fourth sea tour. That very first career development board givesa snapshot of where a Sailor is and what they need to do to perform-to-serve.• Newly assigned Sailors do not always have access to a computer; share yours during check-in. Reviewtheir OMPF as well as review the www.npc.navy.mil, NPC Detailers Facebook and Twitter site. We areall busy; these tools make it a lot easier to be kept up to date.• Ensure Sailors know their critical dates; evaluations, mid-term reviews, as well as exam dates and testordering. An informed Sailor, is more effective. No one gets left behind, because we just forgot.Bottom line, we are all living in a resource constrained environment, and I am asking you directly toprovide both knowledge and access to resources. Our Sailors need your support and assistance.CHECK IN PROCESS FOR SUCCESSNAVY E-LEARNING UNDERGOING AN UPGRADE:COMPLETE OUTSTANDING COURSES SOONNavy E-Learning a part of NKO is undergoing an upgrade which has been in progress since February.
