Maritime Logistics Community News : December 2008
NAVY SUPPLY NEWSLETTER SPRING 2008 19 Naval Stores Since the last edition of the Supply Newsletter the Stores Naval section at Supply School has been target driven towards changes in both the Officer and Sailor training continuums. With no staff change outs during this period the progress in curriculum development has been significant. The net training liability (ISN, LSSN, SAO and Officer training) did not change and coupled with transition training to SLIMS 2007 and other ancillary training (Medic, Cooks, Dentist, Stewards, DC Yeoman etc) the staff have strived to “hit the target” with the instruction schedule that has been put together by our much adored “Planning Tyrant” WOSN Karen Sellars. The significant tasking with regards re-development of Officer and Sailors training has been undertaken by the Stores Naval section with WOSN Sellars providing lead on the deliverables as planned in conjunction with various organisation such as ADNPR(SU) and DSCM. All staff have played a key part in putting together the content for the range of courses including; Intermediate, Advanced, SOAC and DSO based upon their relative experience and qualifications. SAO 1/08 LEFT TO RIGHT POSN WYATT CPOSN WINKLER (INST) CPOSN STEvENS, CPOSN WHEELER Since the last Navy Supply Newsletter we have trained 24 SMNSNs, 9 SAOs, 8 LSSN for their Phase Iv as well as, SOAC trainees and DSOs. Other non-core training for various departments was conducted as required. Not a bad effort! We all look forward to a good break over the RAP now, which will give us time to enjoy the glorious victorian summer with our families and refresh for yet another productive year. ISN 256 WITH SN INSTRUCTORS AND STAFF Taking training ‘to the people’ has continued with CPOSN Colin Benbow and POSN Matthew Thompson chalking up frequent flyer points to the East and West respectively. POSN Trent Richards has continued in the “sausage factory” churning out the initial trainees with great results. He also has applied significant effort in re-developing modules, which has resulted in the trainees learning current practices utilised at bases and ships around Australia. CPOSN Winkler has been delivering training to the SAOs and re- writing their competency task journals. All staff are busy either instructing or implementing changes/improvements to current curriculum however have still found the time to play golf, attend training activities at Laser Zone and enjoy the atmosphere (albeit chilly at times) and lifestyle of the Sunny Mornington Peninsula. So don’t forget to adjust your FYCP (Five Year Career Plan) and include the Supply School as a posting preference.
