PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- As part of the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Technology Center's (NETPDTC) annual Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) test, three large Navywide applications will be offline beginning at approximately 8 a.m. Saturday morning May 3 and Sunday morning May 18.

The outages will occur as systems transfer production processing to and from their alternate COOP location onboard the Naval Service Training Command in Great lakes, Illinois.

"Critical systems for the Naval Education and Training Command regularly exercise their ability to function properly at the COOP location," said David Schisler, director of operations and infrastructure for NETPDTC. "The outages will be fairly short as systems transfer and remain active in Great Lakes until they return operations to Saufley Data Center two weeks later."

According to the Naval Education and Training Command's (NETC) Chief Information Officer (CIO) Robyn Baker, the COOP testing is vital for the training enterprise to function as a result of outside interruptions.

"The data center services NETC training around the world and the annual tests verify that the systems will function properly at the COOP location in the event of a hurricane, disaster, or other emergency," said Baker. "We've scheduled the transfers on weekends to minimize the impact to our customers."

Applications which will be unavailable May 3 and 18 include:
- Navy E-Learning (NeL/ETMDS)
- Fund Administration and Standardized Document Automation (FASTDATA)
- Corporate enterprise Training Activity Resource System (CeTARS)
