Gulfport was selected as the ITRO training site for Army, Navy and Air Force students in October of 1995 and became the sole carpentry/masonry (Builder “A” School) apprentice training site. Navy Steelworker “A” School was also conducted exclusively at NCTC Gulfport.
With the Navy’s Revolution in Training, NCTC Gulfport became a part of the Center for Seabees and Facilities Engineering (CSFE). Since 2004, NCTC Gulfport has been an echelon V command and continues to provide support for the detachments at Sheppard AFB, TX and Fort Leonardwood, MO. Following Hurricane Katrina, NCTC Gulfport worked with CSFE to ensure continuity of training during the restoration of damaged facilities. Fiscal Year 2006 student throughput reached nearly 12,000 Seabees, Soldiers and Airman, trained and ready in basic and advanced skills.
With recapitalization efforts underway to rebuild after the storm, and expected increases in the students coming through the training pipeline, the challenges ahead may change, but in over 40 years of training our basic mission has not. Skill through knowledge remains our motto and the focus for success.
