The Maritime Training Division (MTD) consists of three branches, the Maritime Operations Branch, Maritime Engineering Branch, and Maritime Simulations Branch which, also manages the MITD credentialing program. Combined, the three branches provide maritime operations, engineering, and simulations training for Initial Entry Training students (IET), Non-Commissioned Officers, Warrant Officers, and personnel from other services and USG organizations. MTD also partners with Military Sealift Command (MSC) sharing and providing training facilities and resources. Multiple MTD lessons comply with US Coast Guard (USCG) Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) requirements, which facilitates USCG credentialing for students.
