RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces changes to Cyber Warrant Officer 
commissioning program.

2.  In order to meet the increasing demand for officers with specific 
Computer Network Operations focused knowledge, skills, and abilities, the 
Secretary of the Navy approved the establishment of the Cyber Warrant Officer 
designator in 2010.  Designated as Chief Warrant Officers in the ranks of 
Chief Warrant Officer-2 (W-2) through Chief Warrant Officer-5 (W-5), this 
program provides a deliberate means of identifying, developing, and 
commissioning technically-proficient Sailors to operate, analyze, plan, and 
direct offensive and defensive Cyber Operations.

3.  Sailors from the Cryptologic Technician Networks (CTN) and Information 
Systems Technician (IT) ratings who have demonstrated operational Cyber 
experience and acumen in offensive and defensive Cyber Operations are 
eligible candidates for the Cyber Warrant program.  Candidates must have a 
minimum of six years technical experience (i.e., Network Exploitation 
Analyst, Penetration Testing, Malware Analysis, Forensic Analysis, 
Vulnerability Analysis, etc.).
CTNs who possess one of the Interactive Operator (ION) Naval Enlisted 
Classification (NECs) (9308, 9326, 9327, 9328) are highly competitive 
candidates for the Cyber Warrant program.  Initial assignments will be under 
the purview of Fleet Cyber Command.

4.  Due to the highly technical and ever-changing landscape of the Cyber 
Warfare Environment, candidates who do not possess an ION NEC will be 
required to take and pass the Computer Network Operations Test (CNT) to be 
considered eligible for selection.  This requirement is non-waiverable.

5.  All selections will be made via the Limited Duty Officer (LDO) and Chief 
Warrant Officer (CWO) In-Service Procurement Board.

6.  Points of Contact:
    a.  For general LDO/CWO career path and policy questions, contact CWO5
