The  BOOST  school  curriculum  concentrates  on mathematics,  physical  and  social  sciences,  and  the communications skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Included in the program are educational and personal  counseling,  development  of  study  skills,  and time management. This training brings the general educational  level  of  those  selected  individuals  to  that  of a college freshman. The length of BOOST school is about 14 months. Officer  Candidate  School  and  Officer Candidate  Preparatory  School The  officer  candidate  school  (OCS)  offers  enlisted men and women with a baccalaureate degree or higher from a regionally accredited college or university an opportunity  to  become  commissioned  officers.  Enlisted members selected for the program in paygrades E-4 and below  are  designated  officer  candidates  and  advanced to  paygrade  E-5  upon  reporting  to  OCS.  Enlisted members  in  paygrades  E-5  and  above  are  designated officer  candidates  in  their  present  paygrades.  OCS provides 16 weeks of officer candidate indoctrination and  training. The  curriculum  at  OCS  is  very  demanding. Preparation in English, mathematics, physics, physical science, naval science, air science, military training, physical  training,  and  swimming  instructions  are deemed  necessary  for  the  successful  completion  of OCS. If you are weak in any of these areas, you maybe selected  for  Officer  Candidate  Preparatory  School (OCPS). OCPS prepares you with intensive training in the demanding academic, military, and physical training requirements   at   OCS.   OCPS   is   conducted approximate y four times annually. The course length is 8 weeks for members selected to attend OCS. Detailed procedures for OCS and OCPS are prescribed in the Officer  Candidate  Prepatory  School,  OPNAVNST 1530.6A, and the U.S. Naval Reserve Officer Programs Open  to  Active  Duty  Naval  Enlisted  Personnel, OPNAVINST  1120.2B. Enlisted  Commissioning  Program ECP is an undergraduate education program that offers a till-time opportunist y to complete requirements for  a  baccalaureate  degree  and  become  a  commissioned officer. Selectees for this program attend an NROTC host university on a full-time basis while receiving full pay  and  allowances  for  their  enlisted  paygrade  and  are eligible   for   advancement.   Refer   to   the   Enlisted Commissioning  Program,  OPNAVNOTE 1530, for the list of NROTC host universities. The ECP is divided into three different categories: basic   ECP,   which   includes   all   unrestricted   line designators except nuclear surface and subsurface; ECP  Nuclear  Option,  which  includes  surface  and subsurface;  and  CEC  Option,  in  which  candidates receive  Staff  Corps  appointments  in  the  Regular Navy.  After  the  baccalaureate  degree  is  earned, candidates in basic ECP will be commissioned in the Regular   Navy.   Nuclear   Option   and   CEC   Option candidates will attend OCS after graduation in the ECP  and  will  be  commissioned  upon  completion  of OCS.   Eligibility   requirements   and   application procedures are established in the MILPERSMAN and OPNAVNOTE 1530. Limited Duty Officer Program and Chief Warrant Officer Program The   LDO   and   CWO   categories   are   separate programs that provide an opportunity for enlisted men and  women  to  compete  for  a  commissioned  officer status. The Navy has realized a need for CWOs to serve as officer technical specialists and LDOs to serve as officer   technical   managers.   The   LDO   and   CWO Programs are the primary enlisted-to-officer programs sponsored by the Navy that do not require a college education. The LDO path of advancement is for outstanding enlisted personnel E-6 (for at least 1 year) through E-8 and CWOs. They must have completed at least 8 years, but not more than 16 years, of active service. The  CWO  category  is  for  E-7  through  E-9. Applicants must have completed at least 12 years, but not more than 24 years, of active service. Figure 2-3 shows the path of advancement from enlisted  status  to  LDO  and  CWO. 2-12
