WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Command triads must register now for Sexual Assault Prevention and Response-Leadership (SAPR-L) training, Navy officials announced July 19.
As outlined in NAVADMIN 199/12, command leadership triads (commanding officer/officer in charge, executive officer/assistant officer in charge, and command master chief/chief of the boat/senior enlisted advisor) in fleet areas and other locations must complete SAPR-L training.
SAPR Master Mobile Training Teams (MMTTs) began deployments to worldwide regions July 13, and are conducting SAPR-L training for command triads with nearly 650 training sessions at 95 global sites through July and August. Commanders must sign up for training now through Enterprise Safety Applications Management System (ESAMS). The full training schedule can be accessed at https://esams.cnic.navy.mil/ESAMS_GEN_2/External/Ext_CourseSearch.aspx?c=s636044316952466414.
Enrollment instructions are available at http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/support/sapr/Documents/ESAMS%20SAPR%20Instructionsv2print.pdf.
SAPR training is part of the Navy's aggressive efforts to prevent sexual assaults and promote positive relationships to instill a culture of professionalism. The SAPR-L "train the trainer" training will prepare command triads and provide the tools to conduct SAPR-L training within their commands to Chief Petty Officers and officers.
All E-7 and above personnel must receive SAPR-L training by Sept. 30, and SAPR-L training completion will be documented by commands via the Fleet Training Management and Planning System (FLTMPS). More information on FLTMPS reporting will be released in a future NAVADMIN.
To ensure all hands are trained, command leadership will then deliver SAPR-Fleet (SAPR-F) training to all Sailors E-6 and below starting in October. This training will focus on bystander intervention and equip Sailors with the skills necessary to positively influence behavior.
"Both SAPR-L and SAPR-F training will provide our team the critical tools to eliminate sexual assault and promote the Navy's core values of honor, courage and commitment that define our culture of respect and professionalism," said Rear Adm. Martha Herb, director of personal readiness and community support.
SAPR is an important element of the readiness area of the 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative, which builds resiliency to hone the most combat-effective force in the history of the Department of the Navy (DON).
