Executive Summary

The Surface Force Readiness Manual (SFRM) provides the overarching
strategy and policy required to generate and sustain surface ship materiel
and operational readiness to perform operational tasking and reach expected
service life. SFRM policy execution depends on the integration of manning,
maintenance, training and sustainment throughout all Fleet Response Plan
(FRP) phases. It begins with meticulous maintenance planning to generate the
materiel readiness required to support unencumbered, effective training and
operational readiness that ultimately leads to a self-sufficient ship.




The fundamental tenets of the SFRM include the following:

Train the watchstander and maintainer
A standard, predictable path to readiness
Personnel, Equipment, Supply, Training, and Ordnance (PESTO pillars)
exit criteria
Simple shipboard reporting across all PESTO pillars
A sequenced, building-block approach to readiness
Consistent material assessment standards among all assessment
organizations

The SFRM defines a continual process that educates ships on what the
standards are; determines where the ship is relative to standards; helps the
ship achieve standards compliance through training, assessments, and
maintenance actions; and circles back periodically to ensure the lessons and
effects of this process endure. A ship readiness generation model supports
this process by integrating maintenance and training into a coherent plan of
mutually supportive events that provides ships sufficient time to properly
maintain, operate, and employ ship systems safely and confidently. The goal
of the process is that Sailors deploy with their ship at the peak of
readiness, that they are properly prepared to overcome the challenges
presented on deployment, and that they have been given the training to
sustain a high level of readiness throughout deployment.

100. Purpose. The Surface Force Readiness Manual (SFRM) provides a well-
defined, prescriptive Fleet Response Training Plan (FRTP) for surface ships
to achieve Fleet Response Plan (FRP) readiness. Proper maintenance
execution, coupled with foundational training that reinforces standards
compliance, allows ships to enter the Basic Phase unencumbered by material
deficiencies. The building block approach to training methodically builds
proficiency at the Individual, Unit, and Group levels to support assigned
mission objectives.

101. Surface Ship Readiness Strategy

1. Summary. The surface ship readiness strategy defines the education,
training, and assessments required to produce readiness throughout the FRTP.
Traditionally, Basic Phase has been the logical starting point to discuss
ship readiness generation (as defined in reference (a)). However, the SFRM
model shifts the readiness generation starting point to the Sustainment Phase
in support of the deliberate planning required to integrate maintenance and
training for effective readiness. Having completed all requirements for
deployment certification and at the height of deployment readiness, a ship in
the latter stages of the pre-deployment Sustainment Phase will prepare for
the next FRTP by completing material readiness assessments to form the basis
of the Availability Work Package (AWP) for their upcoming CNO Availability
(see Figure 1-1). Additionally, several coordinated assessments, entitled
Readiness Evaluations (READ-Es), will be conducted throughout the FRTP to
assess ship's materiel and training readiness to provide periodic feedback to
Immediate Superior in Command (ISIC)/Type Commander (TYCOM) and ensure the
ship is ready to meet mission requirements.

2. Focus on Deployed Readiness. This strategy features baseline training
across all mission areas with focused attention and additional specific
training for mission areas expected during the scheduled deployment.

3. Sequenced Readiness. Training a ship's crew to execute a maintenance
availability, perform routine operations in and around homeport, and conduct
sustained combat operations requires a sequenced and coordinated maintenance
and training effort. This strategy is ship-focused and synchronizes training
among multiple readiness stakeholders (e.g., TYCOM (including Port
Engineers), SEA 21, Regional Maintenance Centers (RMCs), Naval Education and
Training Command (NETC), Afloat Training Group Pacific/Atlantic (ATGP/L),
Expeditionary Warfare Training Group Pacific/Atlantic (EWTGP/L), Commander,
Strike Force Training Pacific/Atlantic (CSFTP/L), Tactical Training Group
Pacific/Atlantic (TTGP/L), etc.). The transition from Basic to
Integrated/Advanced Phase will reinforce Individual, Unit, and Group level
training to support mission accomplishment.

4. Readiness Progression. Surface ships will progress through eight steps
to achieve peak readiness as illustrated in Figure 1-2.

Figure 1-2. Readiness Progression

Readiness is based upon a foundation of solid materiel condition that
supports effective training; each step builds upon the previous step to
generate readiness for each mission area. The purpose and standard of each
step is as follows:

5. Phased Approach to Education, Training, Assessment, and Certification.
The surface ship readiness strategy follows a process that educates, trains,
assesses, and certifies a ship's crew to conduct either integrated or
independent operations. The phased approach to readiness supports
standardization of training and ensures ships are prepared to accomplish
their assigned mission by building proficiency through repetition of
fundamentals, exercised in a variety of training scenarios that build in
complexity. Once watch teams demonstrate sufficient proficiency, they will
proceed to the phase qualification event. The ship must meet the
requirements of each phase in order to proceed to the next phase.

a. Educate. This strategy relies on educating Sailors on standards
(clearly demonstrating °what right looks like¨ and how to make it right).
Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) will assist ATG in curriculum
development and providing training to ensure theory taught in the classroom
transitions to deckplate proficiency.

COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3

1-4

Ships must meet exit criteria across all PESTO
pillars in order to transition to the next phase.
b. Train. The training process is based upon Navy Mission Essential
Tasks (NMETs) and trains individuals and watch teams to perform Navy Tactical
Tasks (NTAs) in required conditions, to a measurable standard. Training
starts with theory and fundamentals followed by practical, hands-on scenarios
with over-the-shoulder training.

c. Assess. The ship must pass a comprehensive assessment in each
mission area to validate material readiness and watchstander proficiency
standards.

d. Certify. The TYCOM will certify ships in assigned mission areas upon
completion of required pre-deployment training and successful completion of
various end of Tier assessments conducted by TYCOM and/or designated
supporting commands. U.S. Fleet Forces Deputy Commander for Fleet and Joint
Operations (USFF FJO), Commander, U.S. THIRD Fleet (C3F), or Commander, U.S.
SEVENTH Fleet (C7F) will certify ships for deployment in accordance with
reference (b) based in part upon TYCOM assessment of PESTO pillars.

6. Predictable Path. One of the primary goals of the readiness strategy is
for each ship to have a standard, predictable path throughout all FRTP
phases. Necessarily, a predictable path will also mean less scheduling
flexibility for ships and training/certification organizations. TYCOMs and
USFF FJO/C3F/C7F will, to the maximum extent possible, ensure training
entitlements as outlined in reference (b) are available for all units during
the Basic and Integrated/Advanced Phases of the FRTP. The intent of the
Basic Phase entitlement is to provide units with an unencumbered block of
time; however, the Basic Phase may be compressed, extended or interrupted if
conditions warrant, and is further addressed in Chapter 4 of this
instruction.

7. Exit Criteria. Each ship must achieve prescribed standards in material
readiness and demonstrated proficiency prior to advancing through the FRP.
It is critical for each ship and applicable chain of command to recognize
early and report any risk of not completing milestones in time to meet
operational commitments. By frontloading risk assessment, supporting
organizations have a better chance to assist the ship in meeting prescribed
standards. Chapter 4 provides exit criteria for each phase. TYCOM will
determine if the ship has achieved the required exit criteria to advance to
the next phase using all available resources to determine the ship's
readiness.





8. Waivers. In circumstances when exit criteria have not been met, the ship
will initiate a waiver via naval message through the administrative chain of
command and submit to TYCOM for approval. The waiver shall include a
description of the circumstances leading up to the ship's inability to meet
specific exit criterion, current efforts to correct the deficiency, and
anticipated date that the criterion will be satisfied. An example of a
waiver request, waiver request endorsement, and waiver request approval is
provided in enclosures (1), (2), and (3) respectively. TYCOM shall confer
with USFF FJO/C3F/C7F prior to approving any Basic Phase exit criteria
request.

Transition to the next phase is driven by proficiency
and material readiness, not the calendar.
102. Fleet Response Training Plan (FRTP)

1. The FRTP is aligned with the FRP and consists of five phases:
Sustainment, Maintenance, Shakedown, Basic, and Integrated or Advanced.
While reference (a) identifies the Basic Phase as the start of the FRP cycle,
a more appropriate starting point to better integrate maintenance and
training and for the purposes of this manual, is the beginning of the
Sustainment Phase. During the start of the cycle, a prioritized,
comprehensive AWP is developed to satisfactorily execute the upcoming
Maintenance Phase. The work package must be closely managed and coordinated
throughout the Sustainment and Maintenance Phases to successfully complete
the availability on time. In addition to the maintenance actions, training
is an important part of the Maintenance Phase as ships will be educated on
the standards and how to achieve the required material condition to support
follow-on training. Platform-specific, unit-level training and certification
is performed throughout all phases of the FRP. Integrated Phase training
combines the multitude of naval warfare capabilities of the various units
into a single cohesive Strike Group, Amphibious Ready Group (ARG), or
mission-oriented deployable unit/staff. Advanced Phase training includes
advanced core and mission specific training for non-strike group or ARG
units. The Sustainment Phase, and specifically the ship's deployment, is the
culmination of the FRTP cycle and focuses on maintaining the group or unit's
proficiency to support operational requirements.





2. FRTP Phases. The FRTP Phases described below detail the path to deployed
readiness. To ensure readiness for scheduled deployments, external
assessments and inspections will validate proficiency and satisfactory
material condition as the ship progresses through the FRTP.

a. Sustainment Phase. The Sustainment Phase begins after USFF
FJO/C3F/C7F certifies individual units at the designated deployment
certification level and ends when the ship meets the exit criteria detailed
in Chapter 4. During the Sustainment Phase, a ship will maintain and improve
PESTO pillar readiness. Ship and external organization material assessments
conducted during this phase are the basis for an AWP that supports successful
completion of the Maintenance Phase.

b. Maintenance Phase. The Maintenance Phase begins at the start of a
CNO Availability and ends after the ship successfully meets the exit criteria
detailed in Chapter 4. During the Maintenance Phase, the ship will improve
PESTO pillar readiness to be able to perform in the Basic Phase.
Specifically, the ship will strive to complete all required schoolhouse
training identified in Fleet Training Management and Planning System
(FLTMPS), ensure installed systems are fully operational, and verify training
and qualification programs are fully established.

c. Shakedown Phase. Although not an official FRTP phase in accordance
with reference (a), the Shakedown Phase begins upon successful completion of
Contractor Sea Trials and ends after the ship successfully meets the exit
criteria detailed in Chapter 4. During the Shakedown Phase, the ship will
validate its readiness to begin Basic Phase training.

COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3

1-6

d. Basic Phase. The Basic Phase begins after the ship successfully
exits the Shakedown Phase and ends when the ship meets exit criteria detailed
in Chapter 4. During the Basic Phase, a ship will conduct unit level
training and improve PESTO pillar readiness to be able to perform in the
Integrated/Advanced Phase.

e. Integrated Phase. The Integrated Phase starts at the completion of
Basic Phase and ends when the ship meets exit criteria detailed in Chapter 4,
typically upon completion of the Group Tactical training syllabus and
designation of the strike group as Major Combat Operations - Surge (MCO-
Surge) or Major Combat Operations - Ready (MCO-Ready). During the Integrated
Phase, a ship will conduct multi-unit, multi-platform training and improve
PESTO pillar readiness to be able to perform in a Strike Group or ARG. USFF
FJO/C3F/C7F will certify strike groups, ARGs, or mission-oriented deployable
units/staffs for deployment per reference (b).

f. Advanced Phase. The Advanced Phase starts at the completion of Basic
Phase and ends when the ship meets exit criteria detailed in Chapter 4,
typically upon completion of a certification exercise and designation as MCO-
Ready, or at which level the certification authority designates. During the
advanced phase, a ship may conduct unit required training with an ARG or CSG
during the group's integrated phase as directed by USFF FJO/C3F/C7F. USFF
FJO/C3F/C7F will certify ships for deployment in accordance with reference
(b).

103. Qualifications and Certifications

1. Qualification. A qualification is an event conducted to support a
mission area certification. Qualifications can be awarded by schools or ATG.
For example, Cruise Missile Tactical Qualification (CMTQ) is a specific
qualification event, conducted by ATG, that supports the larger Strike
Mission Area Certification. Passing the qualification event is a
prerequisite for mission area certification.

2. Dependency. An event conducted by an external organization whose
periodicity must be current for mission area certification. For example,
Aviation Facilities Certification (AVCERT) is a dependency for Aviation
Mission Area Certification.

3. Mission Area Certification. A mission area certification is awarded by
the TYCOM after a ship has completed the Basic Phase training requirements in
that particular mission area.

4. Basic Phase Completion. The TYCOM will certify a ship has completed the
Basic Phase when all mission area certifications have been achieved.

5. Deployment Certification. Deployment Certification is granted by USFF
FJO/C3F/C7F when a ship successfully completes the Integrated/Advanced Phase
of training.

104. Sustainment of Certifications

1. Ships will be certified across all mission areas as part of the phased
approach and will retain all certifications throughout deployment and the
post-deployment Sustainment Phase.

COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3
9 Mar 12

1-7

2. Upon entering the Maintenance Phase, deployment certification and all
mission area certifications expire with the exception of those that will be
executed during the Maintenance Phase. (Note: TYCOM may direct that some
certifications that would normally expire remain in effect.) Mission area
certification sustainment requirements will be tailored to match the
conditions that the ship will be in during the CNO Availability. The
following is a list of mission areas that must maintain proficiency
throughout the Maintenance and Shakedown Phases:

a. AT (Standard: Comply with Maintenance Phase force protection
requirements)

b. Mobility - Damage Control (MOB-D) (Standard: Conduct damage control
in a shipyard environment)

c. 3M (Standard: Maintain equipment in a shipyard environment)

d. Fleet Support Operations - Medical (FSO-M) (Standard: Maintain
medical readiness in a shipyard environment)

e. Supply (Standard: Provide logistics support for Maintenance Phase
requirements)

f. Explosive Safety (EXPSAF) (Standard: Safely store and properly
account for ammunition needed for the AT mission in a shipyard environment)

105. Variations to the FRTP

1. Circumstances may arise that require a deviation from the notional FRTP
cycle outlined in reference (b). While the ship is responsible for the
overall schedule, FRTP variations provide flexibility to the administrative
and operational chains of command that ensure the ship is fully qualified to
execute assigned missions. Additional details on FRTP variations are
provided in Chapter 4, Section 406.

106. Tracking and Reporting

1. While all certifications remain valid until the ship enters the
Maintenance Phase, circumstances may develop whereby the ability of the ship
to perform a mission has either been severely compromised or eliminated
altogether. These circumstances can arise from the loss of critical
personnel (P), equipment casualties (E), logistics shortfalls (S), loss of
proficiency (T), or lack of required ordnance (O).

2. Ships will report their readiness in DRRS-N for each PESTO pillar
(Personnel, Equipment, Supply, Training, Ordnance) in accordance with
reference (c). Report mission area degradations in accordance with DRRS-N
(reference c) and Redlines (reference d) requirements.

a. Personnel. Personnel shortfalls, including critical NEC and school
deficiencies are reported in FLTMPS. FLTMPS updates DRRS-N bi-weekly.

b. Equipment. Equipment and material discrepancies are documented in
the Current Ship's Maintenance Project (CSMP), tracked in authoritative Fleet
material readiness databases, and reported to DRRS-N.

COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3
9 Mar 12

1-8

c. Supply. Unit supply status, requests, and shortfalls are reported in
the Continuous Monitoring Program (CMP). CMP updates DRRS-N daily underway
and monthly when inport.

d. Training. Training status is reported through the Training and
Operational Readiness Information Services (TORIS). Each training tier will
have standardized events and grading criteria. TORIS is designed to
streamline reporting and minimize the time required to update the ship's
status. However, while tracking and reporting is simplified, training is
evaluated to the same rigorous standards as defined in governing instructions
such as Navy Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (NTTP); Naval Ships'
Technical Manuals (NSTM); Navy Warfare Training Plans (NWTPs); Navy Mission
Essential Task List (NMETL); Maintenance Requirement Cards (MRC); or other
technical standards.

e. Ordnance. Ordnance status is reported through the Ordnance
Information System program. Ordnance criteria, type, and quantity are
established for each tier of training.

3. Accurate tracking and reporting of proficiency and mission readiness is
essential to support decision making by the Commanding Officer and
administrative and operational commanders.

200. Underway Steaming Requirements

1. In order to effectively train and maintain proficiency, surface ships
must be allocated underway steaming days during all phases when not deployed.
These underway steaming days are required in order to perform a variety of
functions and missions (e.g., achieve qualification, demonstrate proficiency,
etc.). The minimum amount of underway training steaming days for each phase
is provided in reference (a).

201. Shipboard Training and PQS Program Policy

1. General. Effective command training and Personnel Qualification Standard
(PQS) programs are critical to the ship's ability to perform its assigned
missions. Commanding Officers will develop and implement command-wide
training and PQS programs that meet the requirements set forth in references
(b), (c), and Chapter 8 of reference (d). Afloat Self-Assessment (ASA)
checksheets are available to assess training and PQS compliance for both of
these programs (https://atg.surfor.navy.mil/toolbox/private/). Additional
details on the ASA checksheets are provided in reference (e).

2. Relationship between Training and PQS Programs. Training and PQS, while
two distinct programs, are fundamentally linked since PQS is the basis of a
command training program in accordance with reference (d) and both programs
enable effective Watch Team Replacement Plan (WTRP) management.

a. The entry point of the shipboard training and qualification process
is the WTRP. It should identify watchstations that will need to be filled
due to either rotation or upward progression, and identify the Sailor
intended to fill that watchstation in accordance with reference (d). These
fills can come either from Prospective Gains (PG) or from existing
crewmembers. In the case of a PG slated to fill a WTRP gap, an analysis of
required schools and/or NECs for the watchstation should take place and the
ship, working early in the process with Navy Personnel Command (NPC) should
initiate those required adjustments to the training track of the PG. Navy
Personnel Command (NPC), for their part, must provide the receiving unit with
viable alternatives to ensure units are gaining members with required
training and/or NECs. Once the PG reports, or in the case of an existing
crewmember, the WTRP coordinator should create a PQS assignment for that
Sailor, with a qualification goal date early enough to meet the need
identified in the WTRP. That PQS assignment should then trigger the
scheduling of the supporting training lectures (reference (b) requires that
COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3
9 Mar 12
2-2

divisions develop a lecture for every 100 and 200 series PQS line item for
their in-rate PQS). Training Teams must also ensure those individuals
working on a PQS assignment are offered opportunities to perform the 300
series tasks during Training Team evolutions. These steps will ensure that
all Sailors receive the necessary training in support of their qualification
goals. See Figure 2-1.



Figure 2-1. Integration of PQS and Training

3. PQS Requirements. All watchstations that are listed on the Watch,
Quarter and Station Bill or any other watch bill require the use of PQS for
qualification. If there is no PQS for the watchstation, the ship will
develop a Job Qualification Requirement (JQR).

a. Tailoring. Ships shall tailor PQS books to meet their unique
requirements. Tailoring includes deletion, addition, or modification of PQS
line items to accurately reflect each ship's equipment, systems, and system
configurations. Prerequisites may also be tailored to match local
conditions. Tailoring includes determining the proper Final Qualification
Authority and whether a performance test, written exam, and/or oral exam is
required for qualification. Commanding Officers will sign a letter for each
PQS standard that reflects the tailoring of that standard. These tailoring
letters must be issued to crew members with the PQS to ensure consistency in
the qualifications.

b. PQS Qualifiers. PQS Qualifiers are acknowledged experts in a
specified area of qualification. Qualifiers are entrusted with protecting
the integrity of the PQS system by guiding trainees to references, and not
giving away answers or signatures. Qualifiers will normally be E-5 or above
and fully qualified on the watchstation they are authorized to sign.
However, Commanding Officers should use a conservative approach in
designating qualifiers. Interim qualified personnel shall not be designated
as PQS Qualifiers. Additional guidance regarding PQS qualifiers is provided
in reference (c).

c. Requalification. Each individual shall go through a requalification
process when they transfer to a new command; when revised PQS is received and
changes to the standard, in the Commanding Officer's judgment, warrant

requalification; or upon Commanding Officer's discretion. In each of these
cases, a decision is required to determine if the individual should complete
the entire PQS, complete a tailored qualification program, or accept the
previous qualification.

(1) PQS generally presumes a person beginning qualification has very
little understanding of the applicable watchstation requirements. The
standard, therefore, includes signature requirements for basic principles
that a more experienced service member may have already learned. A tailored
accelerated qualification program may be appropriate for these more
experienced individuals.

(2) It is the responsibility of the Final Qualification Authority
(FQA) in conjunction with the Department Head, Division Officer, Leading
Chief Petty Officer, and Leading Petty Officer to determine the entry level
of each person. This determination is used to decide what line items are
required for requalification.

(3) Using this procedure will reduce the requalification process to
the minimum required for each individual. For example, an experienced Sailor
may be able to complete in one week the requalification requirements that a
less experienced person may take several months to finish.

4. PQS Management
a. Relational Administrative Data Management (R-ADM). R-ADM, if
installed, shall be used to manage PQS and Training Programs. R-ADM is
designated as the authoritative database for afloat activities with the Naval
Tactical Command Support System (NTCSS) suite to capture individual level
unit training, including PQS, qualifications, and certifications. As such,
PQS program elements such as PQS POAM development, tracking of progress,
interim qualifications, and the recording of final qualification will all use
R-ADM. In addition, all watchbills will be created, managed, and maintained
in R-ADM or another program that pulls data directly from the R-ADM database.
For the shipboard training program, R-ADM will be used to track the
appropriate training exercises required by reference (d).

b. Ships that do not have R-ADM may choose their method of tracking PQS.

202. Training Teams

1. Training Team Policy

a. An effective training program is based on a logical continuum of
training that provides watch teams the opportunity to mature as a cohesive
entity. The goal is for the ship's training teams to attain self-sufficiency
and maintain watch team proficiency by conducting challenging training using
realistic and progressive scenarios designed to meet specific training
objectives. To be effective, training must be scheduled and conducted
throughout the entire operating cycle.

b. Training teams should include a core group of the most knowledgeable
and experienced personnel who bring enthusiasm to the training process. No
particular team size is directed. The size of the crew, number of qualified
personnel, complexity of the exercise, and safety requirements will influence
the size of the team. In addition, some training objectives for a particular
event may not require the stationing of a full training team.

COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3
9 Mar 12
2-4

c. When feasible, ships may use a 2-section training team program in
which a training team will be formed from one watch section to train the
other and vice versa. In the case of the Damage Control Training Team
(DCTT), the ship may use selected members of one repair locker to train and
assess other repair lockers. Assigning training teams in this manner
eliminates the requirement to have dedicated training team members,
eliminates confusion on assignments during actual battle or damage control
events, and enhances watchstander skills by increasing training
opportunities. However, this model may not work for all cases. For example,
there will be certain drills that require a dedicated training team other
than the watch teams (i.e., Condition I drills, such as MSFD, MOB-D Major
Conflag, etc.).

2. Required Training Teams. The following training teams will be
established:

a. Anti-Terrorism Training Team (ATTT)

b. Combat Systems Training Team (CSTT)

c. Engineering Training Team (ETT)

d. Damage Control Training Team (DCTT)

e. Seamanship Training Team (STT)

f. Aviation Training Team (ATT) (LHA/LHD/LPD only)

g. Medical Training Team (MTT)

h. Visit, Board, Search, and Seizure Training Team (VBSSTT) (if
applicable)

i. Integrated Training Team (ITT)

3. Training Team Designation. Training team members must be designated in
writing by the Commanding Officer. Designation may be accomplished by
separate instruction, letter, or watchbill signed by the Commanding Officer
(CO). The minimum qualification requirement is that the training team member
must be qualified on the watchstation being observed.

4. Transition from ATG to Training Teams. The focus of the training
strategy is to have external trainers (ATG, School House, etc.) train the
watchstanders and then hand over the responsibility of maintaining
proficiency to the ship's training teams. For the majority of the mission
areas, ATG will develop the training scenarios, execute the scenario for the
watchstanders, and assess the event. However, drill hot check verification
and any required equipment operation will be conducted by qualified ship's
force personnel.

a. Prior to entering the Basic Phase, the ship shall be able to man all
required training teams.

b. All training team members will receive the same Theory and
Fundamental, Individual, and Watch Team training that all watchstanders
receive. Training Team proficiency is expected to improve during this
progressive training and training teams will be certified prior to exiting
COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3
9 Mar 12
2-5

the Basic Phase. Training Team certification will be recommended by ATG and
granted by TYCOM.

203. Management and Safety Afloat Programs

1. Ships must maintain a variety of management programs to ensure the ship
is able to meet mission requirements. Management and Safety Afloat Programs
include, but are not limited to, Tag Out, Electrical Safety, 3M, and Hearing
Conservation. The standard for these programs is outlined in each mission
area's ASA checksheets and must be routinely assessed by ship's force
throughout the FRP.

2. Management and Safety Afloat Programs will be assessed by external
organizations throughout the FRTP. Specific grading criteria for management
programs are provided in reference (f).

204. Ship Instructions, Notices, and Bills

1. There are numerous instructions, notices, and bills required to establish
proper procedures. Many of these documents can be incorporated into the
ship's SORM and signed under a single cover letter by the Commanding Officer
or his designated representative with °By Direction¨ authority. The
following documents must be signed by the current Commanding Officer within
90 days of assuming command:

a. Battle Orders

b. Standing Orders

c. Navigation Bill

d. Cruise Missile Doctrine (if applicable)

e. Force Protection In-Port Security Plan (ISP)

f. Temporary Standing Orders

g. Deranged Equipment Bill

205. Synthetic Training. Synthetic training systems and devices, both
platform-based and shore-based, are critical to the readiness strategy.
Simulation-based training provides individual watch standers and watch teams
the opportunity to conduct training in a synthetic environment when safety,
range access, realistic opposition forces (OPFOR), environmental
considerations, and resource constraints make live exercises impractical.
Furthermore, reference (g) states that "training simulators should be used to
replace live training to the maximum extent possible where training
effectiveness and operational readiness are not compromised." By optimizing
the use of synthetic trainers, crews are better prepared, achieve exercise
objectives faster, and perform at higher levels. Therefore, the ability to
maintain, configure, and employ a ship's synthetic training capability is
integral to ship readiness and will be assessed throughout the FRTP.

206. Maintenance and Material Management (3M) Program. The 3M Program is
designed to identify and correct material deficiencies by ship's force
through periodic and situational equipment assessments. While not all
equipment can be fully assessed through the ship's 3M Program, a well-
executed program will reduce the amount of growth and new work and maintain a
higher level of readiness throughout the entire cycle.

300. Purpose. Periodic assessments validate ship readiness to execute
mission requirements. Due to the unique capabilities of each ship class,
numerous organizations provide assessments, evaluations, certifications, and
inspections. These organizations will use established, common standards for
material readiness and training in order to eliminate duplicity of checks and
assessments. Additionally, these organizations will schedule and conduct
periodic assessments where they fit best to improve ship readiness throughout
the FRP and deliver ships to USFF FJO/C3F/C7F at their peak level of
readiness. The notional schedule for the 27 month FRP is provided in Figure
3-1.

Note: The order of events is more important than the month in which the
events are conducted.

schedule an event that is not identified in Appendix A. External activities
that desire to add, alter, or delete events contained in Appendix A must
coordinate with respective authority (COMNAVSURFPAC and COMNAVSURFLANT for
Sustainment, Maintenance, Shakedown, and Basic Phases; CSFTP and CSFTL for
Integrated/Advanced Phase). The Chiefs of Staff are the approval authority
for any changes to Appendix A.

3. Changes to Qualification, Certification, or Exercise Standards. Changes
to Basic Phase qualification, certification, and exercise standards are
subject to TYCOM N7 Configuration Control Board approval before
implementation.

302. Readiness Evaluations. Throughout the FRP, multiple, complementary
assessments will be consolidated into distinct evaluation periods entitled
Readiness Evaluations (READ-Es) as outlined in reference (a). READ-Es will
assess, validate, or certify ship readiness. Because each evaluation may
have several components, one organization shall be designated as the lead
organization for each READ-E and is responsible for coordination with the
ship and other assessment teams. The duration of the READ-E varies based
upon scope, ship class, and other scheduling considerations.

303. Assessments

1. Assessments that are not part of the Readiness Evaluations discussed in
Section 302 are scheduled as independent events throughout the FRP. Where
possible, these assessments have been aligned to the notional cycle, rather
than a standardized periodicity (e.g., °conducted during pre-deployment
Sustainment Phase¨ vice °conducted every 2 years¨) in order to provide ships
a predictable and logical readiness assessment periodicity. In addition,
these independent assessments have been scheduled with the following
additional goals:

a. Reinforce common standards

b. Consolidate assessments when logical

c. Maximize use of subject matter experts

d. Eliminate redundancy

A complete list of assessments is provided in Appendix A.

2. Total Ship Readiness Assessments (TSRA) are material assessment packages
coordinated by the Regional Maintenance Centers (RMC) designed to improve
maintenance availability planning and Current Ship's Maintenance Project
(CSMP) management, repair equipment, support system light off, and provide
over-the-shoulder training to ship's force maintenance personnel. The
assessments are conducted by the RMC and serve to increase ship's force
awareness of material standards and educate maintenance personnel on
troubleshooting and repair processes. Details of the TSRA process are
provided in reference (b).

304. FRP Certifications

1. Per reference (c), there are two fundamental milestones required by ships
to progress through the FRP. Basic Phase Completion and Deployment
Certification are granted to ships following successful completion of
COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3
9 Mar 12
3-3
specific unit level and group (multi-ship) requirements.

2. Basic Phase (Unit Level) Completion. Basic Phase Completion is a TYCOM
report that identifies the ship as an Independent Unit Ready for Tasking
(IURFT). Basic Phase Completion is based upon successful completion of all
mission area certifications.

a. Mission Area Certifications. Mission area certifications are granted
by TYCOM, relying upon assessments conducted by ATG Pacific/Atlantic
(ATGP/ATGL), Engineering Assessment Pacific/Atlantic (EAP/A), or other
assessment organizations.

b. A complete list of mission area certifications is included in
Appendix A.

3. Deployment Certification. Deployment Certification is granted by the
USFF FJO/C3F/C7F (as applicable) as outlined in reference (c).

305. Inspections

1. Material Inspections. Part of the strategy to maintain equipment at a
higher level of readiness and reinforce standards compliance includes more
frequent material inspections. By conducting a material validation every FRP
cycle, ships will better understand their equipment status and capabilities
and reduce the premium costs associated with late-identified work.
Furthermore, USFF FJO/C3F/C7F will have confidence in the material condition
of surface ships as they transition into the Integrated/Advanced Phase and
then onto Sustainment Phase and deployment.

a. INSURV Trials and Material Inspections. The Board of Inspection and
Survey (INSURV) will conduct Acceptance Trials (AT), Final Contract Trials
(FCT), Material Inspections (MI), and Decommissioning Surveys in accordance
with references (d) and (e).

b. TYCOM Material Inspections. In FRP cycles that do not include one of
the INSURV inspections in the paragraph above, TYCOM will conduct an MI in
accordance with applicable TYCOM instruction (reference (f) or (g)). These
inspections will be notionally scheduled six to eight weeks following Basic
Phase completion.

400. Fleet Response Training Plan (FRTP). The Fleet Response Training Plan
(FRTP) is a flexible and scalable approach to training that meets the dynamic
requirements of the Fleet Response Plan (FRP). The FRTP consists of five
phases: Sustainment, Maintenance, Shakedown, Basic, and Integrated/Advanced.
The notional schedules for the 27 month FRP is provided in Figure 4-1.

Note: The order of events is more important than the month in which the
events are conducted.



Figure 4-1. 27 Month FRP Notional Schedule

1. The transition from one phase to the next is driven by material readiness
and demonstrated proficiency. Each phase consists of training, evaluations,
and assessments that support the ship's ability to achieve exit criteria in
each phase.

2. To achieve the required synergy necessary to produce surface ship
readiness, each phase must be supportive of the subsequent phase, rather than
viewed as a separate period. A sequenced and coordinated effort from all
organizations tasked with assessing and repairing ships and training Sailors
is critical to establish the training continuum. The goal is to build
mission area proficiency across the FRTP through progressively complex
Individual, Unit, and Group level training events based on standardized and
repeatable measures of performance. The FRTP Phases outlined in the
following sections describe the path to deployed readiness.

3. Training Continuum. In order to achieve the required Basic Phase and
Deployment Certifications, each ship executing the notional FRP cycle will
progress through the training continuum as illustrated in Figure 4-2.


Figure 4-2. Training Continuum

a. The ability for the command to focus on required training relies on
material condition that can support training and does not measurably distract
the crew from training objectives. To ensure the condition of ship's
equipment is fully understood, ATG, in conjunction with RMC, will perform

material checks prior to the start of the Basic Phase. Identified material
deficiencies will be adjudicated by TYCOM prior to proceeding.

b. Once all material deficiencies have been adjudicated and appropriate
action taken, the ship will progress through the training continuum in the
sequenced steps.

c. Ships that do not satisfactorily demonstrate mission area proficiency
during the applicable Certification/Qualification (X.4) event will repeat the
event following remedial instruction.

d. Ships are required to perform a variety of exercises throughout the
FRTP in order to achieve certification and maintain proficiency. The three
types of exercises are described below. A detailed description and list of
exercises are provided in reference (a).

(1) Certification Exercises (CE). CEs are conducted in the Basic
Phase and are a prerequisite to mission area certification. ATG will assess
the ship's ability to successfully demonstrate these exercises.

(2) Advanced Exercises (AE). AEs are conducted following Basic Phase
completion. AEs are primarily accomplished during Group Sail; however, USFF
FJO/C3F/C7F (as applicable) may authorize conduct of these exercises any time
during the Integrated Phase. Exercises will be assessed by CSG/ARG staffs or
local training agencies (if resources are available). Not all ships will
perform all AEs; USFF FJO/C3F/C7F will select applicable AEs for each ship to
accomplish during the Integrated/Advanced Phase.

(3) Repetitive Exercises (RE). REs are conducted by ships following
Mission Area Certification in order to maintain proficiency in each mission
area. The ship will self-assess their ability to successfully demonstrate
these exercises.

401. Sustainment Phase

1. Focus. During the Sustainment Phase, ships will focus on maintaining
readiness across the full spectrum of mission areas in order to be ready to
conduct prompt and sustained combat operations. Additionally, due to the
long lead time required for Availability Work Package (AWP) development, this
is the time to conduct both internal (ship's force) and external material
assessments that will form the basis of the next Maintenance Phase.

2. Expectations. While on deployment, ships will focus on deployed
missions, while maintaining proficiency in all mission areas through
repetitive exercises in accordance with reference (a).

a. A TFOM of 80% in the Mobility Mission Areas shall be maintained at
all times.

b. Tactical Mission Areas will be sustained through training and
conducting deployed missions. Ships shall make all reasonable efforts to
maintain a TFOM of 80% in all tactical mission areas, however, when
operational requirements limit proficiency opportunities, training on the
mission areas required by the Operational Commander shall take precedence.
Some mission areas will be allowed to degrade and ships will report readiness
degradations of affected mission areas in accordance with governing
directives without the need for a mitigation plan during deployment.
COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3

c. Ships will begin preparations for the upcoming CNO Availability
through critical self-assessment, clearly documented deficiencies, training,
and planning. Preparations for the Maintenance Phase must not interfere with
the ship's ability to meet operational commitments.

d. TYCOM shall coordinate focused training to ships outside the Basic
Phase on an as-needed basis as determined by unit self-assessment or ISIC/ATG
recommendation.

3. Notional Schedule. Figure 4-3 depicts the notional schedule for the
Sustainment Phase.

Note: The order of events is more important than the month in which the
events are conducted.


Figure 4-3. Sustainment Phase Notional Schedule

4. Readiness Evaluations, Assessments, Certifications and Inspections.
Throughout the Sustainment Phase, various evaluations and assessments will be
conducted to reinforce standards compliance. Events that require significant
coordination are outlined below; remaining events are listed in Appendix B.

a. Total Ship Readiness Assessment (TSRA) 5. TSRA 5 is a two-week pre-
deployment combat systems material condition verification conducted by the
applicable Regional Maintenance Center (RMC). While it occurs before TSRA 1
in the Sustainment Phase (as illustrated in Figure 4-3 above), it is the
final TSRA event that prepares the ship for deployment. Scheduling of this
event should occur prior to the ship's pre-deployment leave and upkeep period
to provide sufficient time to correct critical deficiencies. The purpose of
TSRA 5 is to ensure combat systems equipment (including Ballistic Missile
Defense equipment) is operable for deployment. Deficiencies identified
during TSRA 5 will be prioritized and scheduled for repair based upon impact
and repair timeline.

b. Total Ship Readiness Assessment (TSRA) 1. TSRA 1 is a two-week ship-
wide material condition assessment conducted by RMC and performed during the
pre-deployment Sustainment Phase to identify work items for an upcoming CNO
Availability. Scheduling of this event should occur early enough in the
Sustainment Phase to correct any critical deficiencies identified during the
assessment prior to deployment and without impact to the ship's operational
commitments. The purpose of TSRA 1 is to minimize growth and new work during

a CNO Availability by conducting a comprehensive material condition
assessment in advance of AWP lock (see reference (b) for specific
milestones). Specific material checks conducted during TSRA 1 will include
Integrated Class Maintenance Plan (ICMP) tasks and specific items identified
in reference (c).

c. Readiness Evaluation 1. READ-E 1 is a ship self-assessment executed
during the Sustainment Phase, typically while the ship is on deployment. The
purpose of READ-E 1 is for the ship to perform a critical self-assessment of
their manning, material, schooling, and other requirements in order to gain
an assessment of their readiness to conduct the next FRTP cycle. Duration of
READ-E 1 is determined by the ship, but must be completed and findings
reported to ISIC/TYCOM at least four weeks in advance of READ-E 2 and READ-E
3. The requirements for READ-E 1 are provided in reference (d).

d. Readiness Evaluation 2. READ-E 2 is a TYCOM-led assessment of
material condition executed during the Sustainment Phase following READ-E 1.
It is conducted in conjunction with an underway period and must be completed
before the start of the Maintenance Phase. READ-E 2 replicates the
demonstrations and critical events that will be performed during the
Maintenance Phase TYCOM Sea Trials. Demonstrations are conducted during this
period to identify any material condition degradations that occurred during
the course of deployment and ensure that the ship maintains a constant focus
on material assessments and standards. Any deficiencies identified during
READ-E 2 shall be added to the ship's CSMP and considered for possible
inclusion into the CNO AWP, recognizing that work items may be growth or new
work. Every effort should be made to complete all demonstrations for the
applicable ship class. Ships shall coordinate with the appropriate Immediate
Superior in Command (ISIC)/Type Commander (TYCOM) to develop the schedule of
events (SOE) and reserve required services. A list of required
demonstrations and critical events is contained in reference (d).

(1) Total Ship Readiness Assessment (TSRA) 2. TSRA 2 is a ship-wide
material condition assessment conducted by RMC in conjunction with READ-E 2.
RMC's participation will ensure appropriate technical representation is
available to document deficiencies, expedite maintenance planning, and
correctly prioritize maintenance action.

e. Readiness Evaluation 3. READ-E 3 is a TYCOM-led validation event
conducted during the Sustainment Phase. The event may be conducted in
conjunction with READ-E 2 and is comprised of three primary events: READ-E 1
Validation; Safety and Occupational Health (SOH) and Environmental Programs
Review; and the Command Readiness Assist Visit (CRAV).

(1) READ-E 1 Validation. During this period, the TYCOM will validate
the ship's self-assessment conducted during READ-E 1. In addition to an
assessment of manning (including NECs), material condition, schools plan, and
management programs, READ-E 1 will include a comprehensive assessment of the
proficiency of the crew across all mission areas. This mission area
proficiency assessment may be demonstrated via available onboard training
systems and the results of the assessment will be used to determine if
refresher training is required for the ship to remain a surge asset or to
help ISIC/TYCOM determine if Basic Phase should or can be tailored. The
requirements for the validation are provided in reference (d).

402. Maintenance Phase

1. Focus. The focus of the Maintenance Phase is to establish a material
foundation that will support Basic Phase training, subsequent operations, and
maintenance and modernization to meet the ship's Expected Service Life.
During this phase, ships must also strive to complete required schoolhouse
training in order to have the foundational knowledge to succeed in the
upcoming training cycle and, ultimately, deployment.

2. Expectations

a. Availability Maintenance Actions. All maintenance availability work
will be complete and certified through either RMC work certification
procedures or demonstrated performance during Contractor Sea Trials.

b. The ship will have satisfactorily demonstrated its ability to safely
operate the engineering plant and get the ship underway. Modernization
impacts on material readiness must be considered and addressed during the
Maintenance Phase to ensure no impediment to training exists.

c. School Requirements. Ships should make every attempt to complete all
required schoolhouse training during the Maintenance and Shakedown Phases.
In cases where schools cannot be completed during these periods, ships must
de-conflict Basic Phase training requirements with mandatory school
requirements. Ships should contact TYCOM via their chain of command as early
as possible to resolve shortfalls.

d. Training and PQS Programs. Training and PQS Programs must remain
fully established throughout the entire FRTP to validate watchstander
knowledge and proficiency. However, due to the crew turnover that typically
occurs following deployment, ships must ensure that appropriate PQS
assignments and training programs are established to support the WTRP for the
entire FRTP.

3. Notional Schedule. Figure 4-4 depicts the notional schedule for the
Maintenance Phase.

404. Basic Phase

1. Focus. The focus of the Basic Phase is to train and certify a ship in
all mission areas and be able to perform operations as an individual unit.
Basic Phase begins after a ship achieves Shakedown Phase exit criteria and
will be executed in two parts. Mobility (Tier 1) and Unit Tactical (Tier 2)
training will follow a five-step process that starts with material
assessment, training, develops individual and watch team skills, builds watch
team cohesion and proficiency, and concludes with qualification events for
each mission area. Shipboard training teams will also be trained throughout
the Basic Phase. Upon completion of all mission area certifications the
TYCOM will report Basic Phase Completion and the ship will transition to the
Integrated/Advanced Phase.

2. Expectations

a. Demonstrated Proficiency. The ship must be successful at the
qualification events across all Mobility (Tier 1) mission areas prior to
advancing to Unit Tactical (Tier 2) training. All Basic Phase training
qualification events will be completed (with a minimum passing score of 80%)
prior to advancing to Group Tactical (Tier 3) training.

b. Mobility (Tier 1) and Unit Tactical (Tier 2) training events are
sequenced to build upon each other such that each ship is competent in basic
mobility and communications prior to commencing single unit warfare
activities. When ships operate as a cohesive group, the combination of
capabilities is greater than the sum of its parts but is reliant on the
tactical competence of each unit. Therefore, each ship must master all
Mobility and Unit Tactical training events and exercises as specified in
reference (a).

3. Notional Schedule. Figure 4-8 depicts the notional schedule for the
Basic Phase.

visits may be scheduled depending each ship's readiness for MI. TYCOM will
coordinate with the ISIC and ship to determine the appropriate course of
action for each ship; external organizations will not be able to conduct ship
visits during this period without prior approval from TYCOM.

(2) Material Inspection. The Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV)
will conduct Material Inspections in accordance with references (b) and (j).
COMNAVSURFPAC will conduct TYCOM Material Inspections in accordance with
reference (k), and COMNAVSURFLANT will conduct TYCOM Material Inspections in
accordance with reference (l).

406. FRTP Variations

1. One of the primary goals of this strategy is for each ship to have a
standard, predictable training path throughout the FRTP. This predictability
is necessary in order to synchronize the various maintenance, training, and
operational requirements. Circumstances may require deviations from the
notional FRTP cycle outlined in reference (i). Although a range of
possibilities exist, three primary variations are described below.

a. Full Basic Phase. Ships that conduct a scheduled CNO Availability
and have sufficient training time available before the next deployment will
execute the established training and certification plan.

b. Abbreviated Basic Phase. When a ship is not allotted sufficient time
to complete a full Basic Phase following a CNO Availability, a tailored
training plan will be established based upon the results of READ-E 3. This
tailored plan will provide training in those mission areas assessed by the
TYCOM as below minimum acceptable standards.

c. Certification Extension. Ships without a dedicated CNO Availability
between scheduled deployments remain in sustainment and will execute a
COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3
9 Mar 12
4-19
Certification Validation to support certification extension. The
Certification Validation will be a comprehensive assessment of all assigned
warfare area certifications. Mission Areas validated below certification
criteria will receive additional training in order to maintain certification.
Figure 4-12 gives an example of each variation.



Figure 4-12. Variations to the FRTP and Training Cycle

2. Forward Deployed Naval Forces (FDNF)

a. FDNF ships' high operational tempo (OPTEMPO) and frequent tasking in
support of national objectives requires these ships always be prepared to
execute complex operations. This demand for continuous readiness requires a
policy that ensures FDNF ships do not lapse in training, readiness, material
condition, or manning.

b. FDNF ships do not execute the notional FRTP cycle in Figure 4-1. To
maintain the necessary training flexibility, mission area certifications will
not expire when the ship enters an extended maintenance period as described
in Section 104. Instead, mission area certification is set at a 24 month
periodicity. Mission areas may be recertified at any point within that 24-
month periodicity. Ships, ISICs and ATG will sequence the prescribed
training, assessments, and evaluations, in accordance with Appendix A, with
the ship's operational and maintenance schedules in order to maintain
certification periodicity.

c. An individual mission area certification may require a full series of
training and assessments, or may only require some minimal training and then
a certification. The ISIC, working with the ship and ATG, shall be
responsible for determining the level of training required prior to a
certification event.

d. The ship shall report to the NFC and TYCOM, via the ISIC, info their
local ATG, if they are unable to re-certify any mission areas within the 24
month requirement. This report will include a risk assessment and mitigation
plan.

3. Hull Swaps/Crew Exchange

a. In cases where crews move from one ship to another, the general rule
is that mission area certifications move with the crew and both crews will be
fully certified on their current hulls.

b. Since certifications will follow both crews to their new hulls, post
hull swap training will highlight the differences between the two ships and
provide specific mission area verification. The primary focus of mission
area verification will be in the following areas:

(1) Navigation (MOB-N)

(2) Seamanship (MOB-S)

(3) Engineering (MOB-E)

(4) Damage Control (MOB-D)

(5) Anti-Terrorism (AT)

(6) Search and Rescue (SAR)

(7) Medical (FSO-M)

(8) Explosive Safety (EXPSAF)

(9) Amphibious Warfare (AMW)

(10) Aviation (AIR)

(11) Communications (CCC)

c. Consideration for additional mission area validations will be
determined based on USFF FJO/C3F/C7F operational guidance in support of
future operations required of either or both hulls. Crew Certification shall
be conducted over a 3-5 day period as required.

4. New Construction Shakedown Training

a. The purpose of shakedown training is to ensure a ship is safe to
operate. Shakedown training occurs between initial sail-away from the
building yard until completion of the Obligation Work Limiting Date (OWLD).
It forms the first step in the basic unit level training process leading to
operational employment for new construction ships.

b. Shakedown training will comprise unit level training in the following
areas:

(1) Damage Control (MOB-D)

(2) Navigation (MOB-N)

(3) Seamanship (MOB-S)

(4) Engineering (MOB-E)

4-21

(5) Communications (CCC)

(6) Medical (FSO-M)

(7) Aviation (AIR)

(8) Anti-Terrorism (AT)

(9) Explosive Safety (EXPSAF)

c. Shakedown training is the responsibility of the ISIC or TYCOM as
appropriate with support from ATG and other training commands. The specific
shakedown training syllabus will be determined during crew certification.
For a new construction ship the ATG on the coast where the ship will be
homeported will provide training as requested by the Commanding Officer.

d. Crew certification is required for all new construction ships. The
difference between crew certification for new construction ships and ships in
commission is one of depth, detail and time. New construction crew
certification will be conducted as a two-phase event. The first event will
be conducted one to two months before LOA to ensure the ship has properly
identified the manning and training necessary to take the ship to sea. The
second event will mirror the crew certification event conducted by ships
already in commission.

5. Rotational Crews (with the exception of LCS)

a. Rotational Crew Certification. The ADCON ISIC serves as the Class
Advocate while the TYCOM serves as the mission area certification authority
for CONUS rotational crews during their FRTP process. CONUS rotational crews
use the FRTP process and exit criteria in accordance with metrics, timelines,
and protocols established by the TYCOM, ATG, and ADCON ISIC. The general
rule is that certifications move with the rotational crew. In those cases
where there are significant material elements in the certification (i.e.,
supply inventories and fiscal accountability), those elements must be
verified by the ADCON ISIC and the incoming/outgoing Commanding Officers as
being satisfactory incident to crew turnover.

b. Rotational Crew Concept. CONUS and Bahrain-based ships/crews use a
rotational crew concept that fundamentally complicates the scheduling of
required maintenance intensive events (i.e., TSRAs and Material Inspections)
and necessitate some local tailoring to the nominal FRTP scheduling process
to accommodate the right mixture of training-to-certification fidelity,
duration, and frequency for each rotational crew. In these instances, the
ADCON ISIC will take the lead in coordinating with USFF FJO/C3F/C7F, TYCOM,
and ATG as necessary to accommodate various live, synthetic, and simulator
training scheduling priorities; and if necessary, facilitate hull cross-
decking, in order to ensure training-to-certification venues remain robust
and current, while simultaneously supporting necessary deployment rotation
sequence.

c. Rotational Crew FRTP. The notional FRTP for rotational crews varies
based upon the ship class. A description of the notional FRTP for Mine
Countermeasure (MCM) and Patrol Coastal (PC) ships is provided below.

COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.3/
COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3
9 Mar 12
4-22
(1) MCM Rotational Crew FRTP. The notional FRTP is modified for MCM
rotational crews in order to match their fixed 30 month rotation cycle (12
months CONUS, 6 months deployed, 6 months CONUS, 6 months deployed), and is
based on the crew employment, not the hull. The MCM rotational crew FRTP has
only three CONUS training-to-certification phases: Basic, Integrated/
Advanced, and Sustainment. Basic Phase Tier 2 consists of MIW, SUW, and INT
and culminates into IURFT certification. Basic Phase Tier 2 may be combined
with, or proceed into, an Integrated/Advanced Phase MCM Exercise (MCMEX)
which culminates in Deployment Certification. MCM rotational crews will
conduct two deployments within a single FRTP, and will therefore execute a
tailored refresh period during the Sustainment Phase between the two
deployments. The extent of the refresh period will be determined by the
results of a READ-E 3. Figure 4-13 outlines the MCM FRTP.



Figure 4-13. MCM FRTP Notional Schedule

(2) PC Rotational Crew FRTP. The notional FRTP is modified for PC
rotational crews in order to match their rotation cycle (8-9 months CONUS, 6
months deployed), and is based on the crew employment, not the hull. The PC
rotational crew FRTP requires the three CONUS training-to-certification
phases; Basic, Integrated, and Sustainment; be completed within the 8-9 month
inter-deployment CONUS period. Basic Phase Tier 2 may be combined with, or
proceed into, an Integrated Training Phase, and subsequently culminates in
Deployment Certification. The PC Crew warfare area certifications follow a
24 month periodicity with a potential 3 month extension waiver as required.

A-101. General. SFRM policy execution depends on the integration of
manning, maintenance, training and sustainment throughout all Fleet Response
Training Plan (FRTP) phases. Integrated readiness depends on a coherent plan
of mutually supportive events that provides ships sufficient time to properly
maintain, operate, and employ ship systems safely and confidently. The goal
of the process is that Sailors deploy with their ship at the peak of
readiness, that they are properly prepared to overcome the challenges
presented on deployment, and that they have been given the training to
sustain a high level of readiness throughout deployment. This appendix
delivers the details of the integrated readiness plan by capturing in a
single document all of those events required to ensure the ships of the
Surface Force are combat ready.

A-102. Appendix Organization. Each event listed herein supports both a
phase of the FRTP and a specific mission area.

1. Section 2, Mission Area Certification Dependencies, tabulates the events
that must be current in order for the ship to be certified in each mission
area. This provides Commanders, Commanding Officers, and their command
leadership teams a tool that clearly illustrates the sequence and composition
events necessary to succeed in the Basic Phase and throughout the FRTP.
Specific timing of an event within the designated period may vary based on a
number of factors but an understanding of the preparations required by phase,
the relative impact on departments and divisions and the ship as a whole, and
the internal and external planning requirements should ensure optimal
execution of each event.

COMNAVSURFLANTINST 3502.3

A-3

2. Section 3, Mandatory SFRM Events by Mission Area, provides a convenient
view to departmental or division leadership, as well as some external
activities, to identify the events that must be conducted throughout the
FRTP. A program of rigorous self-assessment and continuous identification of
manning, training, and materiel requirements by every ship across the FRTP is
essential to maintain self-sustaining readiness. However, each mission area
has specific materiel and training events designed to bring the best
expertise available to the ship to educate, train, assess, and certify the
ship in that mission area.

3. Section 4, As Required SFRM Events, provides a list of additional events
that may be requested by Commanding Officers or required for specific ships
by TYCOM or ADCON ISIC.
