NSCC OFFICER CORPS

The Naval Sea Cadet Corps Officer Corps provides adult leadership for cadets of the Naval Sea Cadet Corps and the Navy League Cadet Corps. NSCC officers are dedicated volunteers who instruct cadets, operate units, and escort cadets when participating in events away from their home unit. Officers may either be civilians or military (active, reserve, or retired) who are knowledgeable of youth and interested in their training. Instructors are also recruited from active Reserve military commands and leaders within the community.

Members of the Naval Reserve may qualify for drill credit and active duty for training orders (ADT) for participating in NSCC/NLCC activities. The NSCC does not require specific education or professional qualifications, but applicants with nautical/military experience are desired. NSCC officers are authorized to wear Navy officer uniforms (modified by the NSCC insignia). All NSCC officers are appointed by NSCC National Headquarters.
