Inaugural Junior Officer of the Deck Course Lays Foundation for Junior Officers to Drive Ships, Lead Sailors
The Navigation Rule
es and Regulations Handbook and the Surface Warfare Mariner Skills Logbook are foundational for the development of surface warfare officers. Students from the inaugural class of the Junior Officer of the Deck (JOOD) course, a new addition to the revised Surface Warfare Officer (SWO) career path, learned their value as part of a broad range of integrated bridge fundamentals. With this four-week course, newly commissioned ensigns now attend both the Basic Division Officer Course (BDOC) and JOOD to prepare them to drive ships and lead Sailors.
