State of Tracom, September 2011
Heya Marines,
Well, let's get straight down to business.

Basic Numbers:

In August, the SFMCA processed 234 grades for 72 students. The first half of September (1-15) is at a similar pace, having processed 115 grades for 44 students. Good work, Marines! Keep those directors busy!

Award, Decoration, and Certification Group (ADC) generated and distributed 233 ecerts to students in August. Shane and his crew have been busting hump keeping certs flowing out to students. I'll have more to say about ADC later in this report.

Now Hiring:
TRACOM is now accepting applications to fill the vacant TRACOM Sergeant Major post. Duties include:
* serve as liaison between the COTRACOM and the enlisted members of the Command,
* to render advice and assistance to the COTRACOM when the need arises, and,
* serves as head of the NCO Academy.

Requirements for the post are:
All TRACOM Staff members must have completed the following courses:
* PD-10 (Marine Basic Training)
* PD-20
* OTS

In addition to these qualifications, the TRACOM SGM must have completed NCO-30 or complete it within 60 days of appointment.

All TRACOM Staff Members must be a member in good standing of STARFLEET and be at least 18 years of age. Finally, the TRACOM Sergeant Major must be a non-commissioned officer.

Applications for this post will be accepted until 20OCT2011.

Manuals:
Manual updates are on the march. We hope to have the first few manuscripts edited and delivered to INFOCOM by the end of the month.

TRACOM Notes:

Students are reminded that the deadline for an Academy Director to respond to ether a Course Request or a Submission for Grade is ONE WEEK. If you have waited this week and still heard nothing, you should contact the Director again being careful to CC This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Waiting longer than this helps no one.

The ADC Group is a pair of dedicated individuals working to keep students satisfied. Shane and Liam work very hard to get the ecerts out to students as quickly as possible. This is not, however, and instant process. If your grade has been posted on the database for more than 2 weeks and you have received no certificate, you should contact Shane at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and he'll get you straightened out in short order.

While we're on the subject, there has been a question about certificates for TRACOM issued items listed in the SFMC Awards section in the database. The simple rule of thumb is that if you wear it on your uniform, and it isn't a ribbon or cord, then there won't be an ecert issued. There are just too many uniform accoutrements on the list for ADC to issue certs.

If I can be of assistance to any of you, please feel free to contact me at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Catch you next month.
