PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- The chief of naval personnel announced via NAVADMIN 299/17 Dec. 19, the next iteration of Full Speed Ahead (FSA) training for 2018 that expands on existing efforts to prevent destructive behaviors across the fleet.

Full Speed Ahead 2.0 (FSA 2.0) "Got Your 6" training continues the conversation on key themes from the 2017 FSA training and further reinforces expectations for appropriate social media conduct.

FSA 2.0 blends scenario-based videos with small group face-to-face, respectful and collaborative, discussions led by a single certified command facilitator (CF). The training will challenge each Sailor to honestly assess personal, interpersonal and social media character and conduct and to identify specific opportunities for personal individual and organizational growth and betterment.

To maximize the advantage of the small group experience, CFs will conduct the training with no more than 30 personnel, including members of mixed paygrades to encourage open, frank dialogue up and down the chain of command.

Because FSA 2.0 encourages Sailors to take responsibility for their contributions to Navy culture and to re-commit to themselves and each other, the course is designed to be conducted in organic units, such as work centers, divisions, watch teams or departments, as determined by the commanding officer.

FSA 2.0 is required for all active-duty and Reserve Navy personnel and must be completed no later than Sept. 30, 2018. Civilians or other service personnel assigned at Navy commands are encouraged to attend in accordance with their mission requirements and command direction.

Training materials, including videos, the facilitator guide and supporting material, are available for download at Commands may also request mailed copies of the training materials by contacting the FSA Task Force at

Commands may document complete of FSA 2.0 training FLTMPS or other local methods.
