The Escuela Naval Militar de Oficiales (ENM) at Marín, Pontevedra, in north-western Spain, is the Spanish institution in charge of training the Spanish Navy's officer class, as well as other naval personnel. It has been established here since 1943, when it was moved from its previous location at San Carlos near San Fernando, Cadiz. Virtually all Spanish naval officers are trained here. According to an unwritten tradition, the Director of the ENM is always promoted to Admiral.

The nearby naval stations of Ferrol and La Graña have “Escuelas Militares” where almost all of the sub-officers, technicians, sailors and crew of the Spanish Navy are trained.
