Navy looks to train for information dominance


The Navy says it will define competencies that Information Dominance Corps personnel should meet and will turn to training and education to ensure they do.

That's a central point of a human capital strategy (.pdf) for the next 5 years signed into effect late November by Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Dominance/Director of Naval Intelligence, Vice Adm. Kendall Card, and Commander, U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. Tenth Fleet, Vice Adm. Michael Rogers.

The service will also develop cross-functional information dominance career paths, the strategy says.

The corps is 57 percent staffed by civilians, 31 percent by enlisted personnel and 12 percent by officers, the strategy notes. The Navy has already developed a framework describing core competencies; going forward, it must validate that framework, make a training needs assessment and decide how to prioritize training development, the strategy also says.
