The NETA Approved Military Organization (NAMO) classification was born out of the recognition that the United States military is a strong proponent of the NETA philosophy and shares the ideology that adhering to voluntary standards, certification of technicians, and continuing education is paramount to the successful completion of their mission. Military members can obtain certification through NETA’s unique NAMO Program.

As part of this program, NETA visits each company and continues to engage with the military personnel to promote continuing education and NETA certification. NETA’s NAMO Advisory Committee members perform in-person presentations and training for the companies.

Committee members also present NAMO Level 1 certificates and NETA standards to those graduating from the U.S. Prime Power School.
