Description of Subspecialty Codes
aircraft  and  with  Marine  Corps  units,  but  does  not mandate   assignment   of   women   members   to   any particular  ship,  aircraft,  or  Marine  Corps  unit.    The Chief  of  Naval  Operations  and  the  Commandant  of the   Marine   Corps   will   develop   specific   plans   and policy directives for assignment of women members. These  policies  will  ensure  that  women  members  of the Navy and Marine Corps are assigned and used to the  greatest  benefit  of  the  service.     They  will  also ensure   that   assignments   provide   women   with rewarding  careers  commensurate  with  that  of  their male counterparts. SECNAVINST  1300.12,   Title   10,   U.S.   Code, Section   6015,   and   Military   Personnel   Manual (MILPERSMAN),   article   1820100,   have   more information about women’s mission in the Navy. SUBSPECIALTIES The  Navy  places  considerable  emphasis  on  an officer’s  developing  a  subspecialty  in  addition  to  a primary  area  of  naval  warfare.    A subspecialty  is  a secondary  area  of  expertise  coded  to  show  levels  of education or experience. If you desire a certain code status, you can enroll in further study under a Navy-sponsored program or an off-duty program. NAVPERS   15839,   volume   1,   broadly   defines subspecialty   areas   available   to   all   unrestricted, restricted, and staff corps officers. SPECIALTY AND SUBSPECIALTY CONCEPT The area of specialization (specialty) required in a particular   job   (billet)   is   identified   by   a   unique designator code.   Certain billets requiring additional qualifications beyond those indicated by a designator code  are  further  identified  by  subspecialty  codes. Subspecialty codes define the field of application and additional   education,   experience,   and   training qualifications needed to satisfy special requirements that   meet   specific   criteria   of   the   subspecialty validation   process. Subspecialties,   which   are applicable   to   the   URL,   RL,   and   staff   corps,   are professional   development   fields   secondary   to specialties. SUBSPECIALTY CODE DESCRIPTION A subspecialty code is made up of five characters consisting of four numerals and an alphabetic suffix. The   following   are   several   examples. (Table   1-1 provides a detailed description of subspecialty codes.) OBTAINING A SUBSPECIALTY Officers  interested  in  developing  a  subspecialty based   upon   postgraduate   (PG)   education   should indicate   a   preference   for   such   graduate   work (including   curriculum)   on   their   officer   preference card  before  they  complete  their  first  tour.  That  will permit a significant number of PG-selected officers to pursue graduate studies during second or subsequent tours of duty. The Navy needs officers with graduate degrees in technical areas. Therefore, the majority of PG quotas set are for study in technical curricula. Officers  who  miss  going  to  postgraduate  school during   their   first   shore   tour   have   additional opportunities for selection and attendance during their second and subsequent shore tours. Of  primary  importance  to  new  unrestricted  line officers   is   the   attainment   of   the   basic   skills   and qualifications associated with their warfare specialty. Unrestricted  line  officers  should  strive  to  gain  the necessary warfare qualifications leading to command. Your   sustained   superior   performance   in   your present  assignment  is  the  most  important  factor  in determining  your  future  assignments  and  promotion opportunities.   Therefore,   whatever   your   job   and whether   or   not   you   consider   it   important,   always strive to do your best. A  few   ideas   follow   that   may   enhance   your chances for PG school: Basic   qualification   in   your   community (URL/RL/Staff   Corps)   is   the   ticket   to   your   future success. Progress   appropriate   to   your   rank   is essential   in  your  URL/RL/Staff  Corps  community. Without that progress, you won’t get promoted unless you  are  very  unusual  and  have  some  skill  the  Navy can’t find elsewhere. Being joint qualified is better  than not being joint  qualified.  Sure,  waivers  are  possible,  but  they are   “waivers”   and   should   be   considered   as   such. Remember–worry   about   a   waiver   after   you   are   a recognized  professional  in  the  URL/RL/Staff  Corps, not before. Having a proven subspecialty is a real plus for you and the Navy, particularly if you are a URL 1-3
