NAVSTA Great Lakes - RTC Graduation

Graduation Ceremony

* * * New Guidance on Revised Pass-in-Review Policy * * *
Recruit Training Command is lifting the masking mandate. There is no mask requirement for recruits, staff, and guests attending Pass-In-Review. Each recruit can invite two guests (max, no exceptions) to attend in person to maintain capacity limitations. (Children 2 & under do not count toward the guest limit.) Guests 12 or older need to provide proof of immunization (14 days post final dose,) in the form of a COVID-19 vaccination record card, to attend. If you are unable to provide proof of vaccination, you will not be able to attend, and will not be issued tickets to attend. This policy is subject to change as leadership continues to monitor the spread and impact of the Coronavirus. Please continue to follow RTC social media accounts for updates and check for the most up-to-date information. For specific questions and inquiries, contact the RTC Public Affairs Office.

Live streaming of our graduations begins at 9 am CST every Friday. Videos will also be available for viewing afterwards as well on our Facebook page at: and our YouTube channel at:
