All children are still welcome to participate in the in-person NOWA. The Virtual NOWA is a four-hour, video based webinar facilitated via the Qualtrics system. NOWA brief codes and links are specific to the individual and will be emailed on Thursday by 1000.
Active duty Service Members, DoD Civilians, Contractors, and children 10 and above MUST attend the In-Person NOWA. Single parents with children under 10 may opt to complete the Virtual NOWA.
All participants who qualify, are approved, and complete a virtual NOWA brief prior to 1400 on Friday, will have their names forwarded to the Base Safety Licensing office showing proof they completed the mandatory NOWA indoctrination brief.
