DVIDS – News – Naval College Program Moves to Virtual Services

PENSACOLA, Fla. – The Navy College program announced a full transition to virtual education services for Sailors worldwide beginning Oct. 1, 2021. The transition will transition guidance to Sailors from physical Navy College offices (under -officers) at the Navy College Virtual Education Center (NCVEC) as a one-stop-shop for sailors seeking personal and professional development opportunities.

This virtual model proved its worth in 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic closed the doors of many OCONUS NCOs. Throughout 2020 and 2021, sailors have turned to the NCVEC for virtual education guidance and tuition (TA) support. The NCVEC provides live calls and chats with advisors during scheduled hours, and sailors can use the automated Chatbot feature on the Navy College website or leave a question or ask an advisor to call them back for help. of Issue Tracker in MyNavy Education.

“Sailors interested in pursuing off-duty education opportunities will continue to have a wide range of virtual services available to them,” said Lt. Cmdr, Director of Navy Volunteer Education (VOLED). Adam Walsky. “Most importantly, services will not be interrupted for those who need educational assistance or counseling anywhere in the world.”

NCOs transitioning to virtual services include: Rota, Spain; Sigonelle, Italy; Napoli, Italy; Bahrain; Misawa, Japan; Yokosuka, Japan; Atsugi, Japan; Sasebo, Japan; Okinawa, Japan; Guam; Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The academic institutions currently aboard Navy bases, CONUS and OCONUS, will remain in place and continue their current role of providing Sailors with quality education.

Commanding Officers and Education Services Officers can expect to receive the same level of customer service as any Sailor in the Naval College program world. The TA and Navy College Program for Afloat College Education (NCPACE) programs will not change, and any other assistance will be provided by the NCVEC upon request.

Along with announcing the transition to virtual services, the Naval College program announced an update to the NCVEC phone number. All NCVEC customers will now use the MyNavy Career Center (MNCC) toll-free number, 1-833-330-MNCC. The transition to the MNCC toll-free number supports the Chief of Navy’s transformation efforts to provide a single source for all Navy human resources needs and to provide a worldwide toll-free number for seafarers have 24/7 access to VOLED services.

“We believe the transition to the MNCC number will streamline the process for sailors who are ready to take the next step in their education goals,” Walski said. “Not only will this be part of a one-stop-shop from other services, including Navy COOL and USMAP, but it will be especially beneficial to our sailors stationed outside of the continental United States as they can call anytime, toll-free to them.”

After calling the toll-free number, sailors requiring educational services such as TA and NCPACE should select the “Training and Education” option, then “NCVEC”.
