Learning Objectives: Identify the postexamination
procedures to be followed; identify the procedures to be
followed when requesting substitute examinations.
After the examination cycle, certain procedures
must be followed. These procedures ensure that
examination results are received for each candidate
and that candidates selected for advancement are
advanced correctly. They also ensure that service
record entries and disbursing forms are completed
RESULTS OF NAVYWIDE ADVANCEMENT
After the examination, the candidates and the
commands anxiously await the examination results.
NETPDTC publishes the E-4 through E-6 exam
results. Commands receive the results approximately
3 months after the candidates take their examinations.
Chief petty officer candidates normally wait
approximately 2 months for SELECTION BOARD
ELIGIBILITY results. They then wait another 4
months, while the selection board completes the
selection process, to find out whether they are
SELECTEES. Senior and master chief petty officer
candidates are recommended and nominated in
November of each year. They normally find out
whether they are selectees about 6 months later.
NETPDTC issues examination results and
advancement authority to individual commands by the
Examination Status Verification Report (ESVR),
Rating Change Authorization (RCA), data mailer,
message, or letter. The examination results forwarded
to each command consist of the ESVR, RCA, and
Examination Profile Information Form. (See figs. 6-9
through 6-11.) Results for the candidates who took a
late substitute examination are normally issued by data
mailers (fig. 6-12) or separate correspondence. Once
the RCA and the ESVR are verified, they should be
posted on the commands bulletin board.
Rating Change Authorization
The RCA (fig. 6-10) is the actual authorization for
advancement of candidates. The command must
verify this report upon receipt; no candidate may be
advanced until all information has been verified.
The RCA lists all personnel being advanced on the
16th of a particular month. For instance, all personnel
being advanced on 16 February will be on the same
RCA; all personnel being advanced on 16 October will
be on a separate RCA; and so forth. If the command
has no one being advanced during any given month, no
RCA will be issued.
