ODS Requirement for New Accessions

The new ODS requirement for new accessions will start 1 OCTOBER 2019. This will be a 5-week course.

Per NAVADMIN 101/19:

“The accession training requirement for reserve DCOs will be attendance of ODS in one continuous 5-week training period. However, ODS split option courses have been developed to more adequately support civilian professional schedules. A limited number of split option quotas will be available over two separate training periods throughout the year.
