State of TRACOM December 2021
Good day marines!! I want to wish you and your families the very best of the holiday season.
SFMC TRACOM/ SFMC Academy has been busy working various tasks, updating database records of course completions, updating materials and courses, Imputing them into Moodle. This is ongoing, but we are working hard to get this project completed.
I want to take a moment to talk about a few topics that have come up recently. Communication. I want to ask if marines are not getting responses from directors or questions. They can reach out to the directors; they can also reach out to myself or DCO TRACOM Training (Chris
Boggs) We are both working hard to continue to get materials updated and resolve issues. Please continue to reach out to us if needed. Best is always to contact the individual directors first, then if an issue contact the director. But if there is no response or resolution we are available.
Directors are working on updating and moving materials to Moodle. I am working with various directors to send out certs and other materials as needed. If you have not gotten a cert or question, I am available as well as the individual directors. I will note that I am helping the medical branch with certificates. Various specialty certs and updating devices and ribbons, I am working on directly. You can reach out to me. We want to get previous and current devices and ribbons updated. I apologize, I am going in and updating them directly. The backlog of courses from when we are not able to input into the database. I have been given approval to enter them. I apologize for the wait.
Courses and branches that are not active this time. Some courses are not active currently. I am referring to some of the branches of study. I am working to bring courses to updated status. Some of the branches that are not active currently are Combat Engineer, Combined arms, Maritime Operations, SFMC Colleges. I am working to get this updated. I am working on bringing cadre on to update and open the schools. SFMC Academy directors are working to get these open.
Welcome Aboard – I would like to welcome Lawrence Mathews to the SFMC TRACOM Staff. I will be working with him over the next month to get him ready to work on getting Combat Arms moving forward.
Best wishes to everyone and see you around campus.
