BILOXI, Mississippi (NNS) -- Capt. Nate Schneider, commanding officer of the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training, continued his tour of visiting the 27 CNATT locations, this time with the staff and students at the CNATT Unit at Keesler Air Force Base Dec. 9.
Schneider said he had a “great visit” with the staff and students there. Schneider met with CNATTU Keesler leadership, local Air Force leadership, toured facilities, and spoke with staff and students regarding the newest changes to training. The people he met during the visit left an indelible impression on him.
“(That’s) an obvious group of proud professionals,” Schneider said. “They have a great relationship with the Air Force.”
As part of the visit, Schneider visited multiple classrooms to better assess CNATTU Keesler’s capabilities as it correlates with the Navy’s transition to ready relevant learning, which modernizes training to maximize impact and relevance.
With emphasis in curriculum management and execution, team development, and process improvement, CNATTU Keesler’s Commanding Officer Matthew Pawlenko’s enduring priorities are well aligned with CNATT’s strategic principles.
At an all-hands meeting, Schneider further highlighted these principles, answered questions from staff and students, and stressed the importance of CNATT’s mission and future goals.
CNATT’s mission is to develop, deliver, and support aviation training necessary to meet validated Fleet requirements. Its mission aligns perfectly with MyNavy HR Pillar 1, Force Development, ensuring Sailors and Marines are equipped with the specific skills they need to do their jobs and having access to career enhancement opportunities.
CNATT also is a technical training agent for the Naval Aviation Enterprise, an organization designed to sustain required current readiness and advance future warfighting capabilities at best possible cost.
