EWTGLANT provides a variety of MTT’s, as specified in the course descriptions. These MTT’s may be tailored to support both enlisted and officer target populations and can meet specific requirements (as in the case of deploying units) or provide basic instruction in areas which are considered deficient. When requesting a tailored MTT, commands should be specific as to what areas of instruction are required.

Commands requesting MTT’s should ensure that a suitable classroom is available. The classroom should have adequate space, lighting and desks (tables are preferred) to accommodate the desired number of students. Some lessons have electrical requirements to support computers/electronic equipment. Supported units are also required to provide projectors and viewing screens. Once a MTT is approved, direct liaison with the specific instructional section is required to determine requirements.

Course length will vary based on instruction requirements and are normally one to five days. Two-day MTT’s can be structured to support Reserve weekend training. All MTTs should consider one-day set-up prior to course administration.

MTT’s are scheduled based on instructor availability. Requests to support unforeseen requirements should be submitted as soon as practical, preferably 60 days in advance. Commands desiring to request a MTT should do so via message addressed to EWTGLANT NORFOLK VA//. The message should include the following information:

  • Who is to be trained (skill, experience, rank/grade)

  • What course of instruction is required

  • The primary and alternate dates the MTT is requested

  • Where the MTT will be conducted

  • Point of contact with telephone numbers

Reserve units submit annual requirements to the appropriate headquarters for consolidation and submission to EWTGLANT. The DSN number for the EWTGLANT Reserve Support Office is 253-3480/7345. For further information concerning MTT’S, contact the EWTGLANT Director of Operations and Training, Department Student Management Branch at DSN 253-4504/4505 or commercial 757-462-4504/4505.
