operating schedule prevents them from receiving
regular examinations on time, they should submit an
early request for examinations to be administered
during patrol. The ESO should forward an examination
order form (NETPMSA 1418/6) to NETPDTC under a
letter of transmittal specifying a deadline delivery
date. Ensure enough lead-time to allow for processing
and mail delivery. Since examinations are now printed
on demand, regular examinations can normally be
provided in most cases. If regular examinations cannot
be printed and shipped in time to meet the deadline
provided, substitute examinations will be shipped.
Nuclear submarines deploying before receipt of
examinations should notify NETPDTC of nonreceipt.
They will then receive substitute examinations to
administer after they complete the patrol.
