New Navy Instructor Course

The U.S. Navy recently launched its Waterborne Instructor Course - Coastal (WIC-C) offered by the Naval Small Craft Instruction and Technical Training School (NAVSCIATTS). This advanced course is specifically designed for select junior officers and senior enlisted personnel who are graduates of NAVSCIATTS's Patrol Craft Officer - Coastal (PCO-C) course, or personnel with an equivalent level of training but, as NAVSCIATTS leadership stresses, not every PCO-C graduate is an ideal candidate for the WIC-C course. Students in this course are required to perform a timed physical fitness test during the first week. Students have to complete a minimum of 42 push-ups, 50 sit-ups, six pull-ups and run 1.5 miles in less than 15 minutes. Students must also perform a 500-yard swim and a float test in combat gear.
