New Accession Training (NAT) for Enlisted

Contact a Naval Reserve recruiter after high school. NAT provides a candidate with an eight-year obligation. The recruiter will initiate the process with a pre-screening process. This process includes an initial physical screening, Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) and requesting required documentation. The process continues with the candidate taking a complete medical examination. After all the pre-screening and exams, the candidate takes the oath of office. The first assignment will be a nine-week recruit training or boot camp. After boot camp, the sailor will begin drilling at the nearest reserve base. The reservist is then required to perform duty on one weekend each month and two weeks of active duty during the year.
