Welcome to Naval School Explosive Ordnance Disposal
304 N. McCarthy Ave, Suite 117

To meet increased requirements for trained Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians, as well as to support expanding curriculum requirements, the Chief of Naval Operations, on 1 October 1985, established the Naval School, Explosive Ordnance Disposal Detachment at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.
The consolidated Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Training Facility supports the Department of Defense Joint Service EOD training mission. This centralizes all basic EOD training at Eglin AFB, Florida.
This is becoming more and more common, joint training commands. Its a great way to save the tax payers money. Typically the instructors will come from all 4 branches and in this case may include civilians.
I remember many years ago going to Jump School at Ft Benning, and being suprised that my Jump Master was Air Force. Needless to say he was pretty laid back. I was actually pretty glad that I didnt get the Marine Jump Master, because he thrashed the piss out of his platoon
