NCPACE  instructor  college  class  terms  are accelerated  and  last  between  6  to  8  weeks.    Most computer course terms are 90 days.  VTC and Internet courses may use the terms established by the institution. All  courses  offered  have  the  same  content  as  those  on campus and carry resident college credit.  The registrar of the contract school maintains student transcripts. ESOs should coordinate and plan NCPACE courses with  the  authorized  contractor,  being  sure  to  keep  the Navy  College  Office  education  specialists  serving  the command  informed  and  using  them  as  a  guide.  ESOs should  begin  planning  for  NCPACE  courses  well  in advance  of  the  ship’s  scheduled  deployment  (2  to  3 months).  The Navy College Office education specialist may assist ESOs in the following areas: Clarifying  procedures  for  requesting  NCPACE courses. Ensuring  the  ship’s  NCPACE  point  of  contact (POC)  is  aware  of  the  responsibilities  for conducting NCPACE. Ensuring  that  if  the  command  plans  to  utilize computer courses, they assign an NCPACE Team consisting of the ESO, NCPACE POC, and up to two petty officers to monitor students, and if the command  plans  to  allow  computer-delivered academic skills courses, they assign an NCPACE Facilitator to assist and monitor students. The  coordination  of  the  NCPACE  POC,  the contractor,  and  the  Navy  College  Office  education specialist  determines  the  success  of  NCPACE.  The NCPACE POC should carry out the following actions: Ensure  class  dates  correspond  with  the  ship’s operating  schedule  to  prevent  lengthy  delays  or interruptions  in  the  learning  process  and  that minimum enrollments have been met. Ensure officer berthing is available for the civilian instructor and that arrangements have been made for him or her to mess in the wardroom.  Instructors are  given  an  equivalent  civil  service  grade  of GS-12 and are entitled to officer accommodations. The instructor pays the wardroom mess bill and is reimbursed by the school. Ensure that suitable classroom space is available. Ensure that suitable computer space is available. Determine  if  command  or  contractor  computers are to be used. Request  the  desired  courses  from  the  Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC) by message or  electronic  mail      (E-mail)  using  the  format provided by NETPDTC. Provide  NETPDTC  with  confirmation  that Orientation  Services  or  courses  have  been completed.  Provide NETPDTC with confirmation of students who are to receive command-supported withdrawals. Provide  NETPDTC  with  instructor  evaluations and student course critiques.
