PROGRAMS LEADING TO A COMMISSION You may have a goal of becoming a YNCM, the top of the enlisted ladder. Another goal might be to become a commissioned officer. There are several programs open  to  you  that  lead  toward  a  commission,  if  you qualify. Enlisted-to-officer  programs  benefit  from  your career  experience  in  the  military,  especially  in  the supervisory  and  leadership  positions.  You  have  many  of the characteristics in demand such as knowledge of your career  field,  commitment,  responsibility,  creativity,  and the desire to learn. These programs are applicable to Regular Navy and Naval Reserve on active duty. In addition  to  direct  commission,  there  are  basically  three paths leading to a commission. These are the Broadened Opportunity  for  Officer  Selection  and  Training (BOOST) Program and Navy Reserve Officers Training Corps  (NROTC)  for  junior  enlisted,  the  Enlisted Commissioning Program (ECP) for E-5 and E-6, and the Limited Duty Officer (LDO) and Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) Programs for senior members. If you miss one of these programs, seek the next. The path to these programs is within your reach. The following sections explain the programs that lead to a commission. Consult  with  your  career  counselor  to  find  out  how  to qualify for any of the programs. Check to see if there are other programs that may lead to a commission.
