GROTON, Conn. (NNS) -- The soon to be new Submarine Learning Center (SLC) moved from the drawing board to becoming reality during a groundbreaking ceremony Oct. 21, aboard Submarine Base New London.

When completed, the new facility will be a modern two-story brick and glass building that consolidates all of SLC's functions under one roof.

Sustainable strategies and features have been integrated into the facility's design to minimize energy consumption, conserve resources, minimize adverse effects to the environment and reduce the total cost of ownership by using a whole building, lifecycle approach.

The energy efficient building is certified by the U.S. Green Building Rating system and is forecast for completion in November, 2010.

The SLC is one of Naval Education and Training Command's fifteen specialized learning centers. It plans, programs, budgets, and executes individual and team training for undersea warfare enterprise mission readiness. SLC develops, assigns, and coordinates future undersea warfare training and education solutions. It allocates resources to execute undersea warfare training for the Commander of Submarine Forces.
