The Maritime Ballistic Missile Defense course is designed as a source of current Navy BMD information for both strike group staff's and BMD ship's companies. The course is oriented toward BMD familiarization that is invaluable for newly reporting officers and enlisted watch members. It provides students with a functional understanding of Joint/Strategic/Regional Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) operations and system elements from all aspects.

Directions to TTGP Classes:


Upon arrival you must check in at building 61 Security (you will see it to your right as you approach the guard shack) to get your visitor badge.  This will get you into building 24 where our course is held.  Once you receive your badge, enter the compound and make an immediate right at the “T” intersection.  You will see building 24 directly in front of you once you make the turn.  Proceed to the opposite side of building 24 and find a parking place.  Enter through any door on the North side of the building and proceed to the third deck.  You will see three doors as you approach the top of the ladder well.  You will then go through the middle door.  Directly in front of you is the GW classroom.
