LOCATION OF TRAINING STATIONS AND HABITATION BEST SUITED FOR TRAINING PURPOSES.
SYSTEM AND METHODS OF TRAINING.
ORDINARY SEAMEN FROM TRAINING STATIONS IN FLEET.
(1) It is found that officers of the service and people generally, are not familiar with the scope and methods of our naval training service. Large sums of money have been appropriated for training purposes and a system of training has been developed, the purposes of which, if appreciated, would create a great professional interest in the subject, and would compel officers of the fleet to realize the absolute necessity for their cooperation with the training service in order to better the condition of the enlisted personnel, with reference to the needs of the service.
(2) The purpose of this paper is to lay before the general service the results that are obtained from the present system of training, with a view to having more seriously considered how best to apply, and to follow up these results to increase the efficiency of the fleet.
