E7 selection board eligibility results are typically published in early March...



Good luck to our first class petty officers who took the Chief Petty Officer exam on January 19th! Sailors who scored in the top 60 percent of their rate across the Fleet will be selection board eligible. Results of the selection board are typically announced in August each year.

PASS NOT ADVANCED
The pass standard for Navy exams is very low. For example, and E3 taking the E4 exam only has to answer 49 of 175 questions correctly to "pass" the exam. However, not everyone who passes the exam gets credit for the next advancement Cycle.
PNA (Pass Not Advanced) points are added to your FMS (E4/5/6 only) if you pass the test, demonstrate superior performance and/or superior rating knowledge, but are not advanced to the next-higher paygrade. PNA points come from two sources, your Exam Standard Score (SS) and your Performance Mark Average (PMA). You can receive 1.5 points each for PMA and SS per cycle for a maximum of 3.0 points per cycle. Only the PNA points from the most recent five of the last six consecutive examination cycles in the same paygrade are used, so the maximum PNA point total can only reach 15. PNA points for PMA are based on how you rank among your peers. Your PMA must fall within the top 25% of ranked performance mark averages to garner points. Similarly, PNA Points for SS is based on all exam standard scores where your SS must fall in the top 25% in your paygrade/rating to earn points when not advanced.

5 Things You Need to Know about Sea Shore Flow

Story Number: NNS160825-09Release Date: 8/25/2016 3:25:00 PM
By Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy updated Sea Shore Flow (SSF) Enlisted Career Paths with the release of NAVADMIN 190/16 Aug. 25.

Here are five things you need to know about SSF and tour length updates just announced:

1. 42 ratings will not be impacted, 13 ratings will require more sea time, and 15 ratings will require less sea time. Depending on how many sea tours you have completed additional sea duty may be required. Overall, 84,500 Sailors will be impacted. 25 ratings are classified as sea-intensive. Sailors in nuclear power trained ratings are not affected by this NAVADMIN.

2. No two ratings are alike. Each rating is assigned an enlisted career path based on the number of sea duty and shore duty billets the rating has, how long initial training takes, and expected retention within the rating. Why this matters to you: The more sea duty billets and/or the fewer shore duty billets in your rating, the longer sea tour lengths are in order to ensure the Fleet is properly manned.

3. Tour length changes as we modernize the Fleet. Platforms change and so does the work requirement and skill sets needed to man the Fleet. With these force structure changes come billet changes and therefore tour length changes.

4. Projected Rotation Dates (PRDs) within 12 months of the NAVADMIN's release will not automatically be changed. Sailors who have current PRDs within 12 months of the release of this NAVADMIN will not have their PRDs adjusted, unless requested by the Sailor (via 1306) or the unit's Commanding Officer (based on unit readiness needs). Sailors with PRDs outside that 12 month window can expect their PRD will be adjusted to match the new tour length shown in the NAVADMIN. A Sailor's actual rotation dates can vary from their projected rotation date by up to six months. Due to a higher than normal accession mission in 2013, rotation dates for Sailors may have to slide up to six months to ensure the Fleet is properly manned.

5. There are other changes impacting specific ratings.
- AW ratings tour lengths are broken out separately with decreased time on sea duty.
- IT rating now has Sea/Shore rotation. MA rating has additional dependent restricted tour requirements.
- Nuclear power ratings are not impacted by this NAVADMIN. Refer to NAVADMIN 284/15 for specific nuclear rating career path information.

THE ADVANCEMENT EXAM

The Navy advancement exam is 175 questions, of which 150 are occupational and 25 questions are professional military knowledge. The occupational questions are researched, verified and written by rating Chief Petty Officers during Advancement Exam Readiness Review (AERR) events. The Chiefs selected for the AERR decide what number of questions to ask under each topic and subtopic. Every question is tied to an Occupational Standard and a specific reference. Those references are combined after the questions are loaded on the exam to develop the exam bibliography. Each Sailor gets three hours to complete the exam, and scores are determined by comparing rating advancement candidates, where the highest score goes to the candidate who answers the most questions correctly. There is no penalty for answering a question incorrectly, so be sure to leave no question unanswered. Good luck on the exam!

ESTABLISHING THE RANK ORDER

The Navy Advancement Center received the first batch of Cycle 099 Reserve candidate answer sheets this week, and will continue to receive answer sheets through mid-October after the Active Duty E4-E6 Cycle 232 administration. A total of 115,000 answer sheets will be scanned and processed over the next few months. The answer sheets enable NEAS - the Navy Enlisted Advancement System - to set a Standard Score for each candidate. NEAS will also pull in Performance Mark Averages, Time in Rate, Awards, individual augmentee assignment information, and education data. Those elements are totaled to give each candidate a Final Multiple Score (FMS). In each rating, candidates are ranked by their FMS. Advancements are determined by vacancies (quotas) in each rating, where the Sailors with the highest FMS fill the open billets. Good luck to all candidates participating in the upcoming cycles!
