Cliff's Notes on Prototype Training

The final phase of the Nuke Pipeline is Prototype. This is where the rubber meets the road, so to speak. This is where all of the stuff you crammed in your brain at NPS is going to start to make sense because you get to see it in action. Prototype consists of two phases. The first phase is referred to as "Out-Hull." This phase is much like Power School. You will have classroom lectures on the various systems specific to the plant that you are on. These lectures will go into excruciating detail…See More

Scott Henry replied to andy winkler's discussion when will my son need to volenteer for subs. in the group Navy Nukes
"Absolutely. They are required to. the reason Nukes don't go to Sub School is because they get most of the training that they would get in Sub School in Prototype. The Sub school curriculum places a pretty heavy focus on damage control (DC)…"

Thanks for all of your help Scott.  Just a quick update, Graduation was great and he's been in Charleston the last couple of weeks waiting to class up.  He said they should have enough sailors by then to start A school.  He's still in the Nuke program and ended up as an EM so he'll be in Charleston, at least for the next year, for A & C schools; he said Prototype school is in Ballston Spa NY following C school.

Great information Scott. We got our "I'm a Sailor" call yesterday and he told me he's signed up for MM with EM as a fallback. We leave for GL in the morning. Again, thank you for the info!

Thank you! He graduates this Friday and then he's off to A school. I will likely take you up on your offer the farther along he gets. Right now my only questions are how long is A school and when will they find out what rating they'll be; e.g. MM, EM, or ET? And from there where is C school and for how long?

Welcome to Scott ! When my daughter enlisted in 2005 and left for RTC, I had virtually no knowledge of Navy life or how the Navy did things. By the time her PIR rolled around, I was starting to get the hang of things and understand some of the language and abbreviations, but still felt like a fish out of water when dealing with most topics concerning the US Navy. When my son enlisted and left for Great Lakes in 2007, I got serious about trying to learn as much as possible about the Navy. Now, several years into my journey, I’m blessed to say I have two sailors in the family - my son Eric (AM2) was on the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), was attached to Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 37 (HSM-37) in Hawaii, and is now attached to VAW-125 ("The Tigertails") and is stationed at Iwakuni, Japan. My daughter Kat is now a Navy veteran and was stationed on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) as a Mass Communications Specialist(MC3). If were around in those early days, it would have made my first days as a Navy parent much easier!
