To ensure recruiters are accomplishing the accession goals set by Navy Recruiting Command (NRC), Navy career force recruiters with the National Assessment and Assistance Team (NAAT) traveled from Millington, Tenn., to provide training during Navy Recruiting District (NRD) San Antonio's Leading Petty Officers (LPO) Conference held at the Parr Officers Club, March 13 - 14.

The conference, which is held semi-annually, provides refresher training for LPOs of the NRD's 36 recruiting and officer/reserve recruiting stations according to Chief Navy Counselor Torrin Nesbitt, command trainer for NRD San Antonio.

"The training provides a recap, re-polishing and reinforcing tactics, techniques and procedures that they should be executing on a daily basis," said Nesbitt, a native of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. "This year we invited trainers from NRC to lead the training. They have the ability to observe strengths and weaknesses throughout all recruiting districts, and based on their assessments, they are best equipped to teach our recruiters best practices."

According to Senior Chief Navy Counselor Marco Valenciaheredia of the NAAT, the training assists the LPO's of the recruiting stations by identifying their market in a systemic manner through analyzation of the systems which NRC has in place.

"This is important because we want to make sure each recruiter is able to target prospect, target process, and target canvass their area through the analyzation of the target market conducted by the LPO," said Valenciaheredia, a native of Miami. "We need the recruiters to be efficient and effective and not expending time in areas that will not yield results to accomplish the mission of NRC."

NRD San Antonio's mission is to recruit highly qualified men and women for enlisted and officer careers in the regular and reserve components of the U.S. Navy.

The NRD's area of operations spreads throughout 126,000 square miles of Texas, spanning from Waco, west to Midland/Odessa, southwest towards El Paso, southeast along the Rio Grande Valley, and west of College Station.
