Command Approval Requirements

Command Approval Requirements

Command Approval is a review and approval process prior to your WebTA application going forward for authorization funding by the Navy College Virtual Education Center (NCVEC). Your command approver must be your CO or By Direction Authority. When completing the WebTA application, enter the designated command approver’s email and ensure your WebTA application is command approved electronically before the term start date. Your command approver will verify that you:

  1. have been onboard one year at the first permanent duty station or granted a waiver by the CO or OIC before using TA (NAVADMIN 190/14).
  2. are serving on active duty through the last day of the course term.
  3. have passed the most recent Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) or received a waiver.
  4. have passed the most recent advancement exam, if applicable, and are recommended for advancement or promotion.
  5. have not received a non-judicial punishment (NJP) within six months or are not pending administrative separation.
  6. are not under instruction in initial skills training or in a duty under instruction (DUINS) training status.

Sailors need to be aware that a WebTA application is not funded until the NCVEC authorizes the WebTA application which will generate a funded TA voucher. An email notification is sent after command approval and another is sent after NCVEC authorization.

NOTE: Qualifications and Sailor duties always take priority over voluntary, off-duty education activities.
