Abstract : In light of the Naval Sea Systems Command's (NAVSEA) growing dependence on commercial engineering talent, training programs for new engineers should be geared toward developing a stronger technical expertise. The engineer in training (EIT) at NAVSEA is faced with an overwhelming engineering management workload and the adjustment of the EIT to these conditions during the vital initial training phase may obscure the development of technical proficiency outlined in NAVSEAINST 12410.2.(1) The decision to strengthen NAVSEA's technical expertise has already been made and the discussion herein is proposed to support areas of interest toward NAVSEA's future technical development. Discussion is centered on the training phase of recently hired engineers and is directed toward training plans which would make the most of the new engineers talents and at the same time develop the EIT's education so as to produce technical proficiency on a higher level that presently exists.
