    Surface Combat Systems Training Command (SCSTC)

    DAHLGREN, Va. - Surface Combat Systems Training Command (SCSTC) officially released its new training video 11 Jan. The video announces the organization’s realignment efforts, including its name change, and how SCSTC trains surface warfighters to fight and win!

    The Center for Surface Combat Systems (CSCS) changed its name to Surface Combat Systems Training Command (SCSTC), pronounced “Sea-Stick", Nov. 1, 2021.

    Officially approved by the Navy, the name change defines the command’s critical mission of training surface warfighters. SCSTC, with their surface community partners and force development counterparts, provides system and platform specific combat systems training to a growing surface Navy.

    The changing of its name was part of large internal realignment effort. Since the establishment of the organization under the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) in 2004, there have been an increasing number of changing factors within our naval force and throughout the globe. These changing factors include an increase in fleet size and composition (platforms and capabilities), the return of Strategic Competition, rapid pace of upgrades to combat systems, and the implementation of virtual training technology.

    The video introduces SCSTC’s Warfighting Culture of Excellence (COE) program, which instills a warfighting mindset in both students and staff. SCSTC’s COE program focuses on accession level Sailors as they now have the opportunity and responsibility to imbue this mindset from the time students arrive from Recruit Training Command until SCSTC delivers a combat systems warfighter to the brow of their first ship or operational command.

    The SCSTC video also highlights the domain’s Surface Training Advanced Virtual Environment-Combat Systems (STAVE-CS) / Ready, Relevant Learning (RRL) training solutions and pivot to virtual learning in fleet concentration areas. These STAVE-CS / RRL training solutions include the Virtual Maintenance Trainer (VMT), Combined Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) and Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Trainer, Reconfigurable Combat Information Center Trainer (RCT), ASW Tactical Employment Trainer (ATET), and Operations Specialist (OS) “A” School Virtual Operator Trainer (VOT). These trainers were funded by Director, Surface Warfare’s (OPNAV N96) program of record, STAVE-CS, which was introduced in 2015 as a means to provide better quality training resulting in more rapid qualifications of our Sailors.

    SCSTC’s new training video is also located on its Facebook and YouTube pages.
