PENSACOLA, Fla. -- The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) Inspector General (IG) conducted its triennial training symposium onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, March 5-7.
The training was geared towards NETC domain echelon three training personnel who manage their command's IG and Command Evaluation (CE) programs.
"These command representatives are essential to the NETC and the Navy's risk assessment and mitigation efforts," said Al Johnson, NETC IG. "This training increases their understanding and improves their management of all IG/CE programs."
During the three-day symposium, attendees were provided training on ethics issues, the NETC complaint and reprisal process, the NETC Manager's Internal Control Program (MICP) and much more. In addition to training, two practical exercises were conducted to hone attendee skills in investigation and CE.
"The Navy has placed increased emphasis on operational and administrative risk assessment," said Johnson. "These IG/CE programs focus on identifying risk and mitigating it through the development and application of effective internal controls."
The NETC IG is responsible for developing policy; coordinating functions, projects and tasks; and conducting oversight of the NETC domain for assigned programs, including NETC area visit inspections, Hotline complaint investigations, Military Whistleblower/Reprisal Complaint Investigations, CE program, audit liaison, audit follow-up, and MICP.
