VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) -- A Master Mobile Training Team (MMTT) from the Navy's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Task Force is continuing to offer SAPR-Leadership (SAPR-L) training via Defense Connect Online (DCO) through the end of August.

The DCO training is an option for commands that were unable to attend face-to-face SAPR-L MMTT training sessions.

Part of the Navy's aggressive efforts to prevent sexual assaults and promote essential culture changes within the force, SAPR-L preparation training is mandatory for 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). The command leadership triads are then responsible for delivering SAPR-L training to their command leadership, E-7 and above.

"We've made significant progress training command leadership triads and encourage commands unable to attend the training to sign up via the SAPR website," said Capt. Scott Seeberger, SAPR Task Force chief of staff. "DCO training sessions are being conducted Monday through Friday at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. EDT through Aug. 31."

Over 730 SAPR-L training sessions have been conducted in Navy concentration areas all over the world. All E-7 and above must complete SAPR-L training by Sept. 30 and document completion in the Fleet Training Management Planning System (FLTMPS).

Sexual assault prevention is an important element of the readiness area of the 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative, which consolidates a set of objectives and policies, new and existing, to maximize Sailor and Marine personal readiness, build resiliency and hone the most combat-effective force in the history of the Department of the Navy.
