Naval Education and Training Program Development Center, Pensacola, FL.
This document contains a U.S. Navy Rate Training Manual and Nonresident Career Course which form a self-study package to teach the theoretical knowledge and mental skills needed by the Opticalman Third Class and Opticalman Second Class. (Opticalmen maintain, repair, and overhaul telescopic alidades, azimuth and bearing circles, binoculars, compasses, gunsights, sextants, hand-held rangefinders, night vision equipment, submarine periscopes and other precision instruments.) Information in the Rate Training Manual (RTM) is divided into the following twelve chapters: (1) Advancement; (2) The Nature of Light; (3) Mirrors and Prisms; (4) Lenses; (5) Basic Optical Systems; (6) Design and Construction; (7) Maintenance Procedures--Part I; (8) Maintenance Procedures--Part II; (9) Machine Tool Operations; (10) Optical and Navigation Equipment; (11) Night Visual Sights and Gunsights; and (12) Submarine Periscopes. A U.S. Customary and Metric System Units of Measurement table is appended. The Nonresident Career Course (NRCC) follows the RTM index of key terms. The NRCC contains a set of assignments keyed to reading assignments in the Rate Training Manual. It is recommended that this training package be combined with on-the-job training for greater effectiveness. (BM)
