Recruit Training – Daily Routine


Each 24-hour day has a set routine at recruit training. On weekdays, the schedule is based on ten 40-minute training periods daily. Classes involve academic instruction, training and administrative activities. Time scheduled for meals isn’t counted as training periods. Variations in routine may occur depending on the daily routine. The following is a sample of the daily routine you will follow during your initial few days, which are called “processing days”:

Duties and Competition
In every organization, whether at home with your family or aboard ship, someone has to do the house work. At RTC that work is called Service Week. Service Week includes food service duties in the enlisted dining facility, various administrative tasks, deck swabbing, facility maintenance (lawn care, snow removal, etc.), and other necessary jobs to ensure good living conditions for all hands.In Recruit Training, your division will compete for a series of weekly awards for athletic skills, scholastic achievement, military drill, personnel inspections and overall excellence. Flags are awarded to the winning divisions. These flags are carried in dress parades and reviews. The division “guide-on” (flag-bearer) carrying the division number may also carry athletic streamers for awards won in competitive swimming, tug-of-war, volleyball and various track-and-field events. Honor recruits receive special recognition certificates.
Pay Day
Everyone in the Navy is paid twice a month, by direct deposit to the financial institution of your choice. In order for this to occur you will need to take an already completed Direct Deposit Sign-Up Form, Standard Form 1198A to RTC. Most banks have copies of these forms. The financial institution will need to fill in section 3 of the 1198A prior to your departure for RTC. Ensure you take your check book and ATM card for your account to Recruit Training Command.In addition, recruits should be informed of their option to sign up with Navy Federal Credit Union or Armed Forces Bank upon reporting.
