CHIPS Articles: Two New GMT Mobile Apps Released

Two New GMT Mobile Apps Released
By Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs - April 20, 2016
PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- Two new mobile apps designed for Sailors to complete required Navy General Military Training (GMT) on Records Management (RM) and Privacy and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) Awareness became available April 19.

PII and RM are annual GMT Standardized Core Training (SCT) requirements.

PII must be completed by August 31 every year. The records management training app has been updated to include current topics and new focus areas. RM must be completed by December 31 every year.

The apps are designed to provide Sailors with anytime, anywhere access to the mandatory training as well as links to key resources.

"The mobile apps are an extension of our training to offer alternate methods to our workforce," said Rear Adm. Mike White, commander, Naval Education and Training Command. "We want the resources readily available and at your fingertips."

Targeted primarily for active duty, reserve service members and civil service employees requiring training, the apps can also be used as an information tool for Navy family members.

The apps are bring-your-own-device tools designed to work on personal devices outside of the Navy and Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) domain. Users can download the RM and PII apps from both Google Play and iTunes app stores at no cost.

Upon completion of the training personnel can provide the app their Department of Defense identification number from their CAC card and the app will then send a completion certificate to the Sailor's Electronic Training Jacket and/or to Navy Training Management Systems. The user will then be able to e-mail the certificate to their supervisor as verification of completion. Completions should be visible in the ETJ after two working days.

The U.S. Navy Sea Warrior Program produced the app and Tracen Technologies Inc., a company that specializes in integrated mobile and web solutions, was the software developer.

To find the free Navy apps, search "Privacy and Personally Identifiable Information" "PII" and "Records Management" in app stores or in your web browser.
