The United States Phil Bucklew Naval Special Warfare Center (NSWC, also known as "The Center") is a component command of the Naval Special Warfare Command and is sited within Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, California.

The NSWC currently covers these subsidiary training sites: Naval Air Station Key West, Florida; Hawaii; Yuma Proving Ground, Arizona; Hurlburt Field, Florida; Naval Special Warfare Cold Weather Detachment Kodiak, Alaska; SEAL Delivery Vehicle (SDV) Training, Naval Support Activity Panama City, Florida; Advanced Training, Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Virginia; La Posta Mountain Warfare Training Facility; and NAVSCIATTS, John C. Stennis Space Center, Mississippi.[1]

The NSWC runs much of the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) training. The main courses are the famous 12-month long SEAL training (BUD/S and SQT) and 5-month long SWCC training.
