The Operational Stress Control (OSC) Mobile Training Teams (MTT) are currently conducting in-person training both ashore and at sea. The two teams, one based on the east coast and the other on the west coast, are positioned to respond quickly to training requests from commands on how Sailors can best navigate the stresses of Navy life. NAVADMIN 150-12 outlines the details for requesting this training.
The Mobile Training Teams offer two courses: The Navy OSC Leader Course and Front Line Supervisor Training (FLST). “We wanted to expand the availability of our OSC skills training and the MTTs are the most cost-effective method. This brings the training to the command,” said Capt. Kurt Scott, Behavioral Health Programs Director, Bureau of Naval Personnel. “The most important part of these courses is the frank discussion among attendees. When members of a command talk about what they see as stress-related issues and how course tools could be applied in their commands, OSC becomes more than a concept – it becomes a way of doing day-to-day business.”
The OSC Leader course is an interactive, professionally-facilitated, skills-based course. Leaders learn how to identify stress, build resilience and mitigate stress before it becomes a stress injury or illness. During the course, the command leadership will share their real-world experiences and how they handled stress.
The Front Line Supervisor Training course provides in-depth training for deckplate supervisors to enhance their ability to recognize and effectively intervene with Sailors suffering from emotional distress caused by life’s challenges. The course emphasizes supervisory and helping skills.
