State of TRACOM – July 2013

State of TRACOM – July 2013

Good news everyone!

As of last night, the penultimate school at the SFMCA has been renumbered. The only one left is the Cadet Academy, which will soon be getting the 2-number treatment.

We are also hard at work on getting the MOS manual updated with the new numbers, and will be releasing it soon.

Today is the last day that I will be accepting applications for the position of DCO-Administration, so if you have had any thoughts about applying, now is the time to do it. I will be reviewing all of the applications and will announce who the new poor soul is over the coming weekend. (I am just joking about the poor soul part. I’m not that hard to work for.)

The annual TRACOM awards will be announced at the International Muster this weekend in Dallas, Texas, and I have been given very explicit instructions that I cannot spill the beans before then, so I won’t.

Let’s move on shall we?

I have noticed that some students have gone to the SFI helpdesk for issues they have had with TRACOM. Please don’t do this, as it will only delay you in getting the answers you seek. If you need help, please contact myself, or one of the DCOs, or the specific branch director, and we will do what we can to help you out.

One more word of caution that I need to discuss, and that is a bit of an issue we are having with the vanity email redirects for the various members of the TRACOM staff. Some of the redirects are not going to the proper location, and it causes a delay in the processing of requests and questions while the request is sent to the correct person. Please bear with us during this time. The appropriate people have been notified of the issue, and are working to resolve it.

In July, the SFMCA had 110 students complete exams. 28 of those exams were scored Distinction, 32 Honors, and 50 Pass.

That is what I have for you this month. See you next month!
