PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- Capt. Lee Newton, commanding officer of the Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC), announced April 28 the command will drop the 'technology' term from its name and become the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC).
The name change follows a reorganization of the command last year by its headquarters, Naval Education and Training Command (NETC).
The re-organization realigned the NETPDC technology component under the NETC N6 Information Technology department and the visual information component under the NETC N7 Fleet Integration, Learning and Development department. Also under the realignment, Navy Voluntary Education was transferred under the management of NETPDC.
"We've changed our name to better reflect our new composition and mission," said Newton. "Our name may have changed, but our customers can expect the same exceptional service from our team of dedicated professionals here at NETPDC."
NETPDC, located at Saufley Field in Pensacola, provides products and services that enable and enhance education, training, career development, and personnel advancement throughout the Navy. Primary elements of the command include the Voluntary Education Department, the Navy Advancement Center and the Resources Management Department.
