What are the advantages?
- WebTA applications shorten processing time. The information is entered directly into the system by the member. CGI does not need to hand enter the information.
- WebTA simplifies the approval process. Member initiates and the system automatically notifies the ESO. ESO reviews and approves and the application is automatically forwarded to CGI.
Is WebTA mandatory?
- All applicants for TA (except those attached to units with poor internet connectivity) will use the Navy WebTA system to complete and submit applications.
