  • Officer Development School students conduct the coverall-inflation portion of the third-class swim test at Officer Training Command Newport (OTCN), Rhode Island, July 8. The test consists of jumping from a 10-foot tower into the pool to simulate abandoning ship, five minutes of floating in the prone position, coverall inflation, and a 50-yard swim. ODS provides staff corps officers and several restricted line designators with training necessary to prepare them to function in their role as newly commissioned Naval officers.

  • An Officer Candidate School (OCS) student performs push-ups while sounding off during “Fast Cruise” at Officer Training Command Newport (OTCN), Rhode Island, June 26. “Fast Cruise” is conducted to test an indoctrination candidate’s ability to perform in a physically demanding environment while receiving and executing a myriad of orders. The command ensures all students are thoroughly tested for COVID-19 after their initial 14-day restriction of movement (ROM) period before training begins. OCS develops civilians and fleet Sailors into newly commissioned officers morally, mentally, and physically and imbues them with the highest ideals of honor, courage and commitment for service in the fleet as Naval officers.
