Officer Candidate School
To take men and women from civilian and prior enlisted life and train them to be competent, confident and disciplined Naval Officers.
Academics: 8 weeks of instruction in Navy Programs and Policies, Sea Power, Engineering & Weapons, Damage Control, Naval Orientation and Warfare, Leadership, Naval Orientation and Seamanship (NOS), Navigations, and Military Law.
During your first week of training you will commence a regimen of daily physical training. You must be able to perform aerobic activity, muscular strength exercises and endurance exercises. Aerobic activity will include running approximately 3 miles three or four times per week, primarily on track or road surfaces. The level of strength and stamina necessary to successfully complete Officer Candidate School (OCS) is similar to the level required in cross-training fitness programs as seen on infomercials. You will benefit greatly if you report to OCS in good physical condition.
