Navy Knowledge Online – NKO

Navy Knowledge Online – NKO – News from the Command Master Chief

Jim Smith

NKO is a key component of the Naval Education and Training Command’s integrated delivery system for lifelong learning initiatives, personal development and knowledge management. A dynamic, broad based delivery system, NKO is designed to support the growth and development of all Sailors.

Starting at accession and carrying throughout their entire Navy careers, Sailors will now have instant access to the NKO Web site, connecting them with the information, expertise and opportunities required to support their professional and personal development.

Sailors utilizing NKO can engage in real time collaboration with peers, mentors and subject matter experts around the world.

NKO will provide Sailors a single access point to all their professional and personal development milestones and the training and education resources that support their success.

Prior to closing I’d like to solicit your continued support ensuring the word reaches all Supply personnel concerning the Supply Enlisted Road Show. I would encourage all to attend the briefing when in your area. If you have any questions, concerns or recommendations please don’t hesitate to drop me a line at
