The programs are designed to provide additional numbers  of  electronics,  technical,  and  nuclear  trained personnel for the naval service. Because of extended periods of advanced training, these programs require a 6-year service obligation. Accelerated advancements are  benefits  of  the  program,  but  failure  to  receive advancement  does  not  reduce  active  obligated  service. Detailed  information  on  these  programs  are  contained in  the  MILPERSMAN. CAREER  OPPORTUNITIES A career as a Yeoman in the Navy offers you a wide variety of billets and opportunities. You will not always be  assigned  to  an  administrative  office  aboard  ship  or shore station. You could be assigned to independent duty, duty overseas with a military assistance advisory group (MAAG), as an instructor at YN A or C school, as an admiral’s writer, at a joint staff (Army, Air Force, and Navy), or even a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) staff. The opportunities for a challenging career are available-all you have to do is become qualified and take advantage of them. NAVY ENLISTED CLASSIFICATION STRUCTURE  SYSTEM The  Navy  Enlisted  Classification  (NEC)  structure supplements  the  enlisted  rating  structure  by  identifying special knowledge and skills requiring more specific identification   than   is   provided   by   rates   and ratings–skills that are not ratingwide requirements. These special skills and knowledge required in specific billets or manpower authorizations are identified by special NEC codes. When the rating structure alone is insufficient  for  manpower  management  purposes,  the NEC coding system more precisely identifies personnel and manpower requirements. The number of billets that require special NEC codes is continually compared with the number of personnel who possess the skills and knowledge   designated   by   the   NEC   codes.   The comparison   between   the   number   of   NEC   billets available  and  the  number  of  qualified  personnel available is used to plan and control the input of people into the formal courses that prepare them for the desired NECs. Consequently, the continuing enlisted strength of the Navy, particularly petty officer allocations and the funds  authorized  for  rating  and  specialty  training, depends heavily upon the accuracy, thoroughness, and timeliness  of  NEC  codings.  So  that  management  may fulfill its manpower requirements, the personnel to support ratings and special programs must be identified by the correct rate, rating, and/or NEC. People who feel they have a chance to learn new skills and get interesting assignments are more likely to stay in the Navy. So, for your own benefit and to keep your people informed, you will want to know the special career  opportunities  available.  Consider  a  career  as  a Flag  Officer  Writer,  NEC  2514.  YNs  selected  for  Flag Officer Writer are sent to C school for approximately 16 weeks  of  intensive  training  in  shorthand,  English grammar  and  composition,  protocol,  officer  fitness reports, and a variety of other subjects to prepare them to manage an admiral’s office. As a Flag Officer Writer, you must be able to take and transcribe dictation at a minimum  speed  of  90  words  per  minute;  draft  personal and  professional  correspondence;  act  on  matters  of social usage, protocol, honors, and ceremonies; and prepare  travel  orders  and  officer  fitness  reports.  As  a YN1  or  YNC,  you  already  possess  the  aptitude  to perform the work of a Flag Officer Writer. The technical administration  of  social  usage,  protocol,  and  honors  and ceremonies is discussed further in chapter 3. To  keep  current  with  NECs  that  are  added  or changed, refer to the latest edition of the Manual of Navy Enlisted  Manpower  and  Personnel  Classifications  and Occupational  Standards,  NAVPERS  18068F,  section  II, Navy  Enlisted  Classifications. Members who show interest in a specialty will want to know how they can attain the NEC. You should advise them in the following manner. Suppose one of your people is interested in becoming a Navy instructor. First, explain to your personnel that interest alone should not be the only reason for obtaining a particular specialty. They should possess a basic ability to perform the work requirements   of   the   specialty.   You   should   then determine if the individual meets the requirements for a Navy instructor and, provided those requirements are met, request a school quota for the individual. If your command  does  not  have  a  requirement  for  a  Navy instructor, the individual should be advised to indicate on the duty preference sheet that he or she desires to attend the Navy instructor course and that the member desires  duty  as  an  instructor.  The  Navy  does  not generally send an individual to a school unless the training  is  subsequently  used.  Upon  satisfactory completion of basic instructor school, the individual would  be  assigned  the  NEC  code  9502.  The  basic instructor school is only one of many Navy courses that will qualify an individual for an NEC. Satisfactory completion of a prescribed course of instruction may also qualify an individual for more than one NEC. You should always check the latest edition of the Catalog  of  Navy  Training  Courses  (CANTRAC), 2-10
