Officer Development School

Welcome aboard,

Welcome to Officer Development School! ODS is one of five officer accession programs operated at Officer Training Command Newport (OTC), and is the foundation for your success as a member of the Naval Officer Corps. The course is both comprehensive and intense, and is designed to facilitate the introduction to your responsibilities as a naval officer. ODS is physically demanding, but will also mentally challenge you as you learn about different aspects of the United States Navy including military structure, traditions and customs, the legal system, and finally, military etiquette. The website addresses check-in procedures, lodging, messing, transportation, uniforms and various other topics.

We look forward to your arrival. Report to the quarterdeck of King Hall (Bldg 291) in appropriate civilian attire no later than the date and time as stated in your orders. If you have any questions, please consult the information included on the ODS website or contact the ODS Lead Instructor at commercial 401-841-1849.
