SUBJ/CHANGE TO ACCESSION TRAINING FOR RESERVE DIRECT COMMISSION
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the Fiscal Year 2020 cancellation
of the Direct Commission Officer Indoctrination Course (DCOIC) and
the associated transition to Officer Development School (ODS) and
the Limited Duty Officer (LDO)/Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) Academy.
The DCOIC provided by Officer Training Command (OTC), Newport, Rhode
Island, will no longer be offered effective 30 September 2019.
Beginning 1 October 2019, Reserve Direct Commission Officers (DCO)
will attend the same accession training courses as their Active
2. The purpose of this change in policy is to ensure standards for
Navy officer training are applied consistently across all accessions
pipelines, in order to support increased permeability between the
Active and Reserve components.
3. This change to accession training affects all direct accessions
into Navy Reserve Officer DCO, LDO and CWO programs.
a. DCOs. Reserve DCOs shall attend ODS to complete their
accession training requirement within 1 year of commissioning.
b. LDOs/CWOs. Reserve LDOs and CWOs shall attend the LDO/CWO
Academy to complete their commissioning training requirement within
1 year of commissioning.
4. ODS Training Flexibility. 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.
