Abstract : This thesis proposes an alternative to the Navy's current procedures for granting quotas for advanced formal training for C school. The amount of specialized skill training taught in C schools and the costs associated with it have greatly increased over the past years. This thesis proposes an effective method for ensuring that a cost efficient number of personnel are trained in C schools. A Markov Chain model is developed utilizing data from the Enlisted Master Record to predict a force inventory of C school graduates. The inventory projection shows how C school graduates will be distributed among paygrade and use of subspecialty. C school planners can use the model to predict changes in the inventory due to changes in the inventory due to changes in C school assignments.
