Organization and Mandate

IMNA was formed as a part of BuTrain in 2008 per Protector's Order 0901-14. This established the creation of the first liaison from the GSN to the Bureau of Training. Similar to the Saganami Island Naval Academy, it's mandate is to first provide organizational and leadership training that is required for promotion in ranks within the GSN. It's secondary mandate is to promote study and learning in science, engineering, math, history, military history and space exploration.

The following is the established organizational structure of IMNA:

Enlisted Training Center

At the IMNA Enlisted Training Center newly enlisted Spacers learn the ins and outs of military life and the basics needed to progress, to survive, and to rise to their Test. As the Spacer progresses in rank, they learn additional skills such as leadership and management. Students learn about military history, Grayson standard knowledge, and practical information needed to perform their jobs. The IMNA Enlisted Training Center is further divided into:

  • Junior Enlisted Training School
  • Senior Enlisted Training School

Officer Training Center

At the IMNA Officer Training Center, lessons learned earlier in the Spacer’s career are used as the basis of the change and additional information, knowledge, and leadership skills are included in the curriculum. The IMNA Officer Training Center is further divided into:

IMNA War College

The IMNA War College teaches the arts of tactics, leadership and strategy.

The Grayson Technical Specialties Center

The Isaiah MacKenzie Naval Academy’s Grayson Technical Specialties Center trains enlisted personnel in their ratings, and officers to lead the departments and divisions in which these ratings work.

Alvarez Field LAC Training Center

All courses here are focused on LACs, their tactics, and in further developing doctrine and training for the same.
