Navywide advancement examinations are like step-
ping stones to every enlisted member in the Navy. Members
normally must successfully compete in each examination,
from petty officer third class to chief petty officer, to advance
in rate. Therefore, examinations should be ordered on time
and administered properly. The command should publicize
the results as soon as it receives them.
Proper procedures must be followed before,
during, and after each examination cycle. By following
these procedures, the ESO can prevent the loss or
possible compromise of an examination.
