Opening Plenary

Tuesday, February 5

Time: 8:30-9:30 am

The U.S. Navy highly values training to mitigate risk and prevent problems at sea and in the air. Training Officers and Sailors on submarines is a 24/7 job that includes everyone. The submarines and equipment inside are only as good as the crew that operates them in the defense of our country.

Despite even the best training, human errors occur that can lead to problems such as damaged equipment or worse–injured Sailors. This presentation will describe some recent Submarine Force successes and failures and how crew training effected the result.
