|Saganami Island Naval Academy
There are four series of rank/promotion courses offered on the Saganami Island Campus: Enlisted, Warrant Officer, Officer, and Flag Officer. The courses are designed to test a candidate’s knowledge on issues pertaining to the TRMN, the Honorverse, and Military History. They are also designed to help develop management and leadership skills that will benefit you as a Petty Officer, in leading a department, commanding a single ship, and/or being the commanding officer of a division, squadron, or fleet of ships.
Naval College rank courses make up a member’s academic record and may be reviewed as part of any promotion board deliberation depending on your advancement path.
Enlisted Training Center
The Enlisted Training Center introduces the Honorverse and TRMN. Enlisted Courses are designed to familiarize students with the basic history of the RMN and warfare in general, along with other information dealing with aspects of military life. In later courses, the basics of leadership and management are covered.
The Enlisted Training Center is responsible for teaching RMN enlisted courses and consists of two schools:
- The Junior Enlisted School (SIA-RMN-0001 through SIA-RMN-0004), and
- The Senior Enlisted School (SIA-RMN-0005 and SIA-RMN-0006).

Officer Training Center
The Officer Training Center continues to build on earlier skills such as historical knowledge along with a familiarity with military hierarchy and introductions to leadership and management to help officers who might find themselves in command of one of Her Majesty’s Ships or those of an Allied Force. These courses become increasingly sophisticated..
The Officer Training Center includes—
- The Warrant Officer School,
- The Junior Officer School,
- The Staff Officer School, and
- The Senior Officer School.
Warrant Officer School
The Warrant Officer School provides training to those who seek the Monarch’s Warrant. Warrant Officers are chosen from the ranks of experienced non-commissioned officers (with at least six months at E-6 or higher) who wish to have more command responsibility.
Warrant officer courses expand on the basics learned in the Enlisted College and continue to cover management and leadership functions required of those who would hold a warrant in the TRMN.
