In the U.S. Navy, training and education for future and current officers take place across a spectrum of topics to ensure that commissioned officers are prepared for their duties in a number of different environments. Officer training is conducted primarily at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, in the Naval Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (NROTC) at higher education institutions around the country, and at Officer Training Command in Newport, Rhode Island.
