Distribution of Eligibility Status Listing
CHAPTER 9 ADVANCEMENT, EDUCATION, AND TRAINING This  chapter  briefly  discusses  the  Navy’s  enlisted advancement  system,  commands’  and  individuals’ responsibilities in regard to advancement, identifies most  of  the  eligibility  requirements  for  advancement, and  discusses  service  record  entries,  eligibility  status list, worksheets, and appointment certificates. This chapter   also   discusses   service   schools   eligibility, enlisted  program  eligibility,  education  programs,  and applying for credit for military experience. ENLISTED  ADVANCEMENT SYSTEM The enlisted advancement system provides for the orderly  progression  of  qualified  enlisted  personnel  to higher  levels  of  responsibility  throughout  their  naval careers. ADVANCEMENT IN THE NAVY Advancement in rate or change in rating is based on demonstrated proficiency in assigned duties, on the performance evaluation and recommendation of the commanding  officer  (CO),  and  on  written  examinations. All  eligible  personnel  compete  for  advancement  or change in rating to fill vacancies in the total Navy/Naval Reserve  allowances. Advancement   is   a   significant   milestone   in   a member’s naval career. Each advancement brings significant   changes   in   duties   and   increased responsibilities. With each advancement a person is one step closer to his or her ultimate career goal. While it cannot be assured that anyone person will be advanced, it is guaranteed that all enlisted personnel of a particular rating   and   similar   qualifications   have   an   equal opportunity to compete for advancement. Advancement  is  one  of  the  most  rewarding accomplishments in a person’s naval career and one that has a great impact on morale. Many rewards of Navy life  are  earned  through  the  advancement  system.  Some of  these  rewards  are  better  pay,  more  challenging  job assignments,  and  greater  respect. The  members  are  not  the  sole  benefactors  of advancement.  The  Navy  also  profits  by  gaining  more competent and better trained members. Highly trained personnel are needed to carry out the Navy’s mission. Each time a person is advanced, that person’s value to the Navy increases. The trained person becomes more valuable as a specialist in his or her rating and as a person who can train others. COMMAND AND INDIVIDUAL’S RESPONSIBILITIES Both  the  candidate  for  advancement  and  the command  have  certain  advancement  responsibilities. For example, each member must make sure his or her advancement  requirements  are  completed  accurately and  on  time. All  members  are  responsible  for periodically checking their service record to make sure all their completed requirements have been entered. Candidates  for  advancement  must  study  and/or  become familiar with all the appropriate publications that are contained in their rating’s most recent  Bibliography   for Advancement  Handbook  in  addition  to  studying  their training  manual  (TRAMAN). Just as important as studying is in preparation for the  advancement  examination;  receiving  excellent performance  evaluations  must  be  clearly  emphasized. All  individuals  are  responsible  for  receiving  good performance  evaluations.    Although you do not write your own performance evaluation, you can do much to improve  your  chances  of  receiving  good  evaluation marks  and  comments. You, as a PN, and all other individuals reading this TRAMAN must remember that just doing your job is no longer  sufficient.    You must do more. You must get involved  in  all  facets  of  the  command  and  conduct yourselves in a proper manner. It is never too early to start  assuming  additional  responsibility.  You  must  take the  lead,  be  professional,  and  always  be  committed  to excellence. Now,  turn  your  attention  to  your command’s responsibilities as far as your advancement is  concerned. The command’s personnel office must make sure the  requirements  previously  discussed  have  been completed by members and are accurately and promptly recorded in the members’ service records. 9-1
