of the ESO necessary for advancement; and identify the methods of obtaining a change in rate or rating. The objective of the NEAS is to advance the best qualified  petty  officers  to  operate  the  Navy’s  ships, planes,  and  shore  stations.    Advancements  provide opportunities  for  qualified  enlisted  personnel  to progress  to  higher  levels  of  responsibility  and authority throughout their Navy careers. The   Advancement   Manual,  BUPERSINST 1430.16, governs the NEAS.  In addition to this basic reference,  a  NAVADMIN  message  is  issued  before each advancement cycle.  This message announces the schedule  of  the  examinations  and  provides  other pertinent information. The   ESO   should   carefully   review   the Advancement  Manual  and  NAVADMIN  message  to ensure the command follows the proper procedures for each cycle. Q1.   What  is  the  primary  objective  of  the  Navy Enlisted Advancement System? DEFINITIONS USED IN THE NAVY ENLISTED ADVANCEMENT SYSTEM Definitions basic to an understanding of the Navy rating structure and the NEAS include such terms as occupational fields; general, service, and emergency ratings;  petty  officers;  apprenticeships  (designated strikers); and so forth.  These are the basic terms that are used in the NEAS as defined below. Occupational Fields Broad grouping of similar occupations are used by manpower,  personnel,  and  training  managers  to organize    the    analysis,    management,    and administration  of  Navy  ratings.    There  are  23  such groupings.   Examples are General Seamanship (BM and SM); Ordnance Systems (GM, MN, MT, and TM); and Logistics (DK, MS, SH, and SK). Ratings Ratings  are  broad  enlisted  career  fields.    They identify  occupational  specialties  that  encompass related aptitudes, training, experience, knowledge, and skills  for  the  purpose  of  career  development  and advancement.    The  three  types  of  ratings  (general, service, and emergency) are described below:    General  Ratings.    General  ratings  identify personnel  by  occupation.  They  provide  the primary   means   of   identifying   billeted requirements  and  personnel  qualifications. Boatswain’s  Mate  (BM)  is  an  example  of  a general rating.   Some ratings are combined at paygrades  E-7,  E-8,  or  E-9  to  form  broader career fields when the occupational content is similar.  This provides for progressively higher levels and scopes of authority and responsibility. An  example  of  this  is  the  combination  of  the Construction  Electrician  (CE)  rating  and  the Utilitiesman   (UT)   rating   to   form   the Utilities/Constructionman  (UC)  at  the  Master Chief Petty Officer (MCPO) level.    Service   Ratings. Service   ratings   are subdivisions  of  certain  general  ratings. The service  rating  may  be  established  at  any paygrade  up  to  E-9. Gas  Turbine  Systems Technician  (GS)  is  an  example  of  a  general rating, which contains two service ratings.  Gas Turbine Systems Technician (Electrical) (GSE) and   Gas   Turbine   Systems   Technician (Mechanical) (GSM).    Emergency  Ratings.  Emergency  ratings  are career   fields   encompassing   skills   or qualifications that do not require identification by a rating during peacetime, but are required in wartime. Currently,  there  are  no  emergency ratings. Rate Rate  identifies  personnel  occupationally  by paygrades  E-1  through  E-9.    Rate  reflects  levels  of aptitude,  training,  experience,  knowledge,  skill,  and responsibility.    Enlisted  rates  are  divided  into  three groups:  General  (E-1  through  E-3  apprenticeships), petty  officers  (E-4  through  E-6),  and  chief  petty officers (E-7 through E-9). ADVANCEMENT QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS To be qualified for advancement, a member must meet the following requirements:    Be recommended by the commanding officer.    Have  minimum  Time-in-Rate  (TIR).   (See  the Advancement Manual for TIR waivers.)    Be in the proper path of advancement.    Meet special requirements (citizenship, security, medical, and so forth) for certain ratings.    Successfully  complete  service  school,  if required. 5-2
