VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) -- As the Sept. 30 deadline approaches for the Navy's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response - Leadership (SAPR-L) training, new completion options are available for command leadership.

SAPR training is a critical element of the Navy's campaign to stop sexual assault and promote a culture of respect and professionalism in our force.

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) that were not able to attend face-to-face training via deployed SAPR-Leadership Master Mobile Training Teams (MMTT) can still complete it by one of the following methods:

a) Registering for and attending one of the MMTT-led Defense Connect Online (DCO) SAPR-L training sessions available Sept. 14 Register online at:

b) Attending a SAPR-L training session conducted by their Immediate Superior in Command (ISIC) who completed the MMTT-led SAPR-L training.

c) Viewing a recorded MMTT-led SAPR-L training session. Copies of this video are available via U.S. Mail from the SAPR Task Force. Requests for the video can be processed through e-mail at:

"We've been able to train most of the command leadership triads by using the master mobile training teams, but realize that some of the deployed units and outliers need alternate delivery options," said Capt. Scott Seeberger, SAPR Task Force chief of staff. "With these alternate delivery options, we should be able to reach all command leadership Navy-wide.

More than 750 SAPR-L training sessions have been conducted in Navy concentration areas around the world. SAPR-L preparation training is mandatory for command leadership triads, who are then responsible for delivering SAPR-L training to their command leadership, E-7 and above by Sept. 30. Documentation of SAPR-L training for command personnel will completed by training officers via 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 (DoN).
