The Official Embry-Riddle Naval ROTC Facebook Page.
To develop midshipman mentally, morally, and physically; to imbue the highest ideals of duty and loyalty; and to introduce the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. To produce naval officers who possess a basic professional background, who are motivated toward careers in the Naval Service, who are primed for future development in mind and character and who are prepared to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship, and government.
This page is intended for anyone who is interested in following the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps Unit at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida. Make sure to check back periodically as updated pictures and information will be posted as events occur.
The NROTC Unit at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is committed to developing quality officers in the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The midshipmen within the Battalion accomplish this through physical training, close order drill, community service, and leadership opportunities available from the Battalion or elsewhere. Midshipmen also have summer training each year to learn more about the different communities in the Navy.
Rising 3/C midshipmen that go on summer training attend Career Orientation and Training for Midshipmen, or CORTRAMID. On CORTRAMID, the midshipmen spend a week each with the surface, submarine, aviation, and Marine Corps communities.
Rising 2/C Navy option midshipmen that go on summer training spend time aboard either a ship or submarine and are assigned running mates from the enlisted ranks to get a firsthand view of how life aboard the ship or submarine is from them.
Rising 2/C Marine option midshipmen attend Mountain Warfare Training where they learn different survival techniques and get ready for Officer Candidate School the following summer which they attend as 1/C midshipmen.
1/C Navy option midshipmen can be assigned to a ship, submarine, or squadron. They are assigned junior officers as running mates to get an idea of their role within the command. 1/C Navy option midshipmen can also spend time with the Special Forces community (Explosive Ordnance Disposal or SEALs) or go on a Foreign Exchange cruise in which they train with a foreign navy.
