Submarine Warfare

Submarine on surfake of ocean

The fundamental goal of the nuclear trained submarine officer is to develop the professional skills and operational background to command a nuclear powered submarine.

The achievement of this goal is accomplished through a well-defined series of professional qualifications, advanced training, and operational sea experience.

Completion of Nuclear Power School and Nuclear Prototype Training will be the first challenge facing a Nuclear Submarine Officer after commissioning.

LT Matthew Eckes is the Submarine Officer and Nuclear Power Officer at Iowa State Univeristy NROTC.
