SWRMC provides D-level and I-level maintenance support and selective maintenance training to surface ships, submarines, shore activities, and other commands of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and U.S. Coast Guard. I-level maintenance complements and bridges a gap between routine shipboard repairs performed by ship’s company, and depot level repairs, which are extensive industrial repairs performed during periodic ship overhauls and dedicated repair availabilities. Limited O-Level support is provided to LCS ship class due to minimal ship manning. In addition, SWRMC provides Fleet Technical Assistance (FTA) as distance support or onboard technical assistance to correct equipment causalities. SWRMC also provides assessments, Combat System, Command, Control, Communications and Computer (C5) Readiness Assessment (C5RA), Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV) support as required.
SWRMC’s primary customers are the Pacific Fleet Type Commanders (TYCOM), the owners and operators of the U.S. Navy surface, submarine, and carrier force. SWRMC also provides maintenance and oil analysis services to aviation and surface ship units of the U.S. Coast Guard, as well as ground and aviation assets of the U.S. Marine Corps.
SWRMC’s engineering team ensures technical integrity and reliability through FTA, Integrated Class Maintenance Plan (ICMP) Assessments, and support of I and D Level work by providing timely, accurate, and comprehensive technically acceptable solutions. FTA support is provided to the Fleet while preparing for deployment, underway, or in a maintenance availability status.
I-level maintenance is accomplished through the use of shops that make up our product families. The product families are functionally structured to meet the ever changing demands of the Fleet. Master Craftsmen are the foundation of the product families; they promote best practices and develop core technical knowledge for assigned Sailors. Our intermediate maintenance approach provides valuable shore duty, allowing Sailors an opportunity to improve their skills with focused attention on the specific system or systems for which they are trained. Sailors work on the equipment within their rate, side by side with contractors and government personnel to meet a demanding production schedule.
One of SWRMC's goals is to return a better-rounded Sailor to the Fleet after their SWRMC tour. This is accomplished through active participation in the Naval Afloat Maintenance Training Strategy (NAMTS) program, which provides on-the-job training (OJT) and complex preparation to Sailors pursuing advanced technical classifications within certain rates. Upon completion of NAMTS program requirements, Sailors earn an Navy Enlisted Classification critical to the Navy and are ready to return back at the Fleet with superior skills and training, making them essential to the mission readiness of their crew
