Maritime Logistics Community News : Summer 2011
15 NAVY SUPPLY NEWSLETTER SUMMER 2011 second or more time. This will keep the SAO up to date with policy and procedures to ensure all compliance and assurance requirements are met. With over 50% of all ABSNs having not completed the second task book required to progress to Skill Grade 3, Senior Sailors and Supply Officers are requested to incorporate the completion of the task books in the goal setting for all SNs that have an outstanding training requirement. Many of you have seen in the recent months, various opportunities for SNs to deploy to the MEAO at short notice. NPMCA do not find out about these positions until advised by HQJOC and on many occasions they are at very short notice. If you wish to apply for an operational deployment, ensure you are in date with IR, have a valid passport which will not expire on deployment and have completed other relevant qualifications and courses. Importantly, if you are a volunteer and your unit advises you that you can not be spared, ensure that your unit releases a signal stating that you are a volunteer but that you can not be spared without relief. Writer (WTR) – WOWTR Marc Henderson The WTR Category is very healthy with a trained workforce of 252 personnel to meet a current demand of 219, an overbearing of 33 personnel. Additionally, there are currently 25 personnel in the training pipeline. The recent reduction in demand was due to the disestablishment of 32 approved positions under the SRP shared services review. Although demand has decreased in approved positions, the demand for WTR personnel remains high due to short term temporary positions in Navy projects and ongoing operational deployment obligations. Morale in the WTR category is high which has been evident during visits to ships and establishments and reflected by the current low separation rate of 5.7%. The positive comments received on the intermediate and advanced WTR courses have been great and reinforces the benefits of the revised training curriculum. Both courses will soon be reviewed to ensure they remain current and meet Navy’s professional requirements for WTRs. The DNCM team would like to thank LCDR Wendy Gould for her tireless efforts over the seven months she was acting in the DDNCM(S&H) position. She has since been promoted and is now the CMDR’s poster at NPCMA. The position of ADNCM(S&H) will be filled by LCDR Simon Read from Dec 2011. The DNCM team would also like to thank WOSN Greg Hetzel for his support as SN Category Manager, as he hands over to WOSN Craig Murdoch (on promotion) in Nov 2011.
