      Registration Validation Email   01/09/2018

      There is still an issue where people registering do not receive the validation email once they sign up on this forum. If you do not receive and respond to the validation email, it will not allow you to become a member. Please check your spam boxes or ask your IT for assistance and whitelist NavyAdvancement.com if you are able to do so.  This is the message I see: "Member has not yet responded to registration validation email."

  1. Past hour
  2. I just finished my AS degree and was told it could take two months to receive my degree in hand. Im worried it might not get to me in time to submit it with my package. I am only 7 classes away from my BS degree however I will not be able to complete them before the package deadline.
  3. You cannot use AMRDEC no more. That option is not in the NAVADMIN no more. I posted about this yesterday but it was deleted. I just want to make sure that everybody gets this.
  4. Today
  5. A team funded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen discovered the wreckage of a military ship that sunk with more than 600 aboard, including five brothers, during World War II. https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/nation-now/2018/03/20/sullivan-brothers-uss-juneau-found-pacific/440821002/
  6. Yesterday
  7. To pass the advancement exam, you will need to have a raw score (number of correctly answered questions) of at least 49 for E4, 55 for E5 and 61 for E6 and E7. Currently, all enlisted advancement exams have 175 questions.
  8. Your exam standard score is a numerical representation of how well you did compared to peers taking the same exam. Scores range from 20 to 80, with the candidate that answers the most questions correctly getting a score of 80. The "pass" standard is very low since the Navy is using the exam to equitably compare candidates in the same rating. Navy exams are the one Final Multiple Score element that Sailors have complete control over.
  9. Last week
  10. So I was told that you can view your raw score on FLTMPS about a week or two after profile sheets come out. Is the raw score how many questions out of the whole test I got right? I know they throw out some questions when grading (or at least that's the rumor I've always heard), and that the score on the profile sheet doesn't reflect against the whole test.
  11. aced with growing difficulties sustaining and modernizing its existing fleet, the need to address the underlying issues behind a spate of deadly accidents and other controversies, and a desire to increase the total number of ships in its inventory, the U.S. Navy has many different priorities to balance when it put together its latest budget request. But at least one part of its new, broad plans, includes a decision to retire one of its two unique hospital ships, possibly as early as the end of 2019, a move that has already rankled some members of Congress. http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/19339/have-mercy-the-us-navy-now-wants-to-retire-one-of-its-two-hospital-ships
  12. May I ask where this information is in writing. I’ve heard nothing about this specific part of board but I know he CNP pretty much said he was switching it up due to the master chief board last year.
  13. For those of you who may not know, the selection board is now conducted like officers boards. This means every record gets in the tank for briefings. No more score sheets and cutoff score to go to the tank. Just FYI.
  14. WASHINGTON – Thousands of veterans who started applying for new identification cards through the Department of Veterans Affairs in November won’t see them until April, according to the agency. VA spokesman Curt Cashour said in January the cards were supposed to be mailed in early March. But on Friday, he said the agency is working with a vendor to approve samples of the new cards before printing them, and distribution has been pushed back to April. https://www.stripes.com/news/va-delays-distribution-of-veteran-id-cards-1.517287
  15. Senior members of Congress have called for investigations and a hearing in response to an Associated Press report that details how the U.S. military frequently fails to protect or provide justice to the children of service members when they sexually assault each other on base. In a letter to U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis, the two leaders of the Senate Armed Services Committee requested Thursday that the Pentagon's inspector general begin a "comprehensive assessment" of department policies related to sexual assaults among military kids. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/congress-demands-pentagon-doj-investigate-child-sex-assault-on-military-bases-1.517115
  16. Does anyone know if we can still use the AMRDEC site to send packages?
  17. When are the Reserve results coming out???
  18. A Navy probe into a junior sailor who said his ship bunk was defaced with racial slurs concluded that he staged the incidents himself, according to a copy of the investigation obtained by Navy Times. It is the sort of episode that might not normally draw attention outside the carrier George H.W. Bush’s crew. https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2018/03/13/navy-boots-sailor-who-staged-racist-attack-on-his-own-rack/
  19. WASHINGTON — A U.S. Navy fighter jet crashed Wednesday off the coast of Key West, Florida, killing its two crew members. https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2018/03/14/super-hornet-crashes-near-key-west/
  20. VIRGINIA BEACH An F/A-18F Super Hornet from Naval Air Station Oceana crashed about a mile off the Florida coast on Wednesday, Naval Air Force Atlantic spokesman Cmdr. Dave Hecht said. The two-person crew has been recovered, but their condition was not immediately available. The pilot and the weapons system officer were taken to Lower Keys Medical Center, Hecht said. Both ejected and were recovered about 10 minutes after the crash. https://pilotonline.com/news/military/local/article_f288a10e-27d7-11e8-b6ab-b37288789aba.html
  21. Thanks for the vote of confidence. I figure if I don't make it this year I should have a good eval for next year. This eval I have 11 months of QA, and 1 month of tool room/ IMRL manager. We have our major inspection in May so if I do good on it I should get a nice write up for my eval. Just have to play the waiting game to see. Hope you make it this year. Hit my 20 year mark in June.
  22. The Navy Advancement Center processes substitute exams as they are received. The exam standard score calculations are done in the same manner as the Navy-wide advancement exams for Final Multiple Score computations. Your Educational Services Officer (ESO) is responsible for prompt return of the substitute exam answer sheets. Advancement (E4-E6) and E7 Selection Board Eligibility results will include all substitute exams received and processed as long as there are no candidate discrepancies. Substitute exam answer sheets received after results publication will be immediately processed, and a profile sheet will be made available the following day. Check with your ESO to get the status of substitute exam processing.
  23. There are still a buttload of people who have not yet responded to the validation email to join the forum. http://forum.navyadvancement.com/announcement/2-registration-validation-email/
  24. Thanks for the alert @sk32004toLSC, it's now added
