Navy Announces Rating Modernization Progress Update


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Navy released an update on the Sailor 2025 Rating Modernization’s four lines of effort (LOE): Career Fields, Marketplace Force Management, Advancement, and Credentialing in NAVADMIN 196/18, Aug. 13.

The updates listed below provide a summary on the current status and way ahead of the four LOEs, but all personnel are strongly encouraged to read the NAVADMIN for greater detail on each topic.

Career Fields

The alignment of Navy ratings into 23 career fields and 12 broad communities has provided a foundation for future development of more flexible and sustainable career paths for Sailors.  In October 2017, and March and June of this year, three groups of over 850 Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) codes were successfully converted to a new construct.  More information about the revised NEC construct and communities and career fields can be found at http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/reference/nec/Pages/default.aspx. 

Marketplace Force Management

Driven by the urgent requirement to update and modernize personnel systems, the Navy began to expand career fields, in order to transform enlisted force community and career management in the future.

A new “Navy Detailing Marketplace” is currently under development, through which the foundational elements of an automated personnel management system will tie Sailor enlistment directly to negotiations for a billet, which will then allow Sailors to reenlist or extend for that billet assignment.  The marketplace will be a single system that uses the new NEC construct to better represent Sailors’ qualifications, experience, and performance in the form of a resume.  The “Sailor Resume” function will be available in the future under “My Record” on MyNavy Portal (MNP).  Starting in Fiscal Year 2019, Sailors will be able to view all advertised billets for which they are qualified and to then submit a resume that includes: ASVAB scores, security clearance status, worldwide deployability, qualifications, evaluations, NECs earned, education degrees and training certifications.  Ultimately, the resume function will provide the ability to better match Sailors to billets. 

Advancement Process

Late in 2017, Navy senior enlisted leaders completed the first phase of the Advancement Exam Readiness Review (AERR) testing bank improvement plan by drafting advancement exam questions that match current and relevant rating-specific technical requirements with the hands-on, real-world knowledge and experience needed in the Fleet. 

The establishment of the Professional Military Knowledge Eligibility Exam (PMK-EE) focuses the Navy Wide Advancement Exam (NWAE) on occupational knowledge and will serve as an eligibility requirement for advancement to paygrades E4/5/6/7.  PMK-EE will be delivered electronically, and will be available via the MyNavyPortal (MNP) website beginning in October 2018. 

The online Enlisted Advancement Worksheet (EAW), will automate the manual advancement processes and enable Sailors to review their worksheets before the exam and take charge of their advancement records.  An EAW pilot, available through the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS), will be implemented with the Active Duty and Reserve spring 2019 advancement cycles. 

The Senior Enlisted Advancement to Vacancy (A2V) pilot was announced in June and will fill senior chief petty officer and master chief petty officer priority billets using a spot advancement incentive, and will lead enlisted advancement modernization for exceptional Sailors in all paygrades with critical NECs in the future. 

Credentialing

Navy Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL) currently funds over 2,700 certificates/licenses with opportunities for Sailors in every rating.  Navy COOL recently reduced the minimum service remaining on a Sailor’s enlistment contract to earn credentials from 12 to six months, and expanded opportunity for Sailors to earn credentials mapped to an academic degree or technical education certificate.  Additionally, there are more opportunities for Sailors to maximize their Navy training and qualifications toward attainment of U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) licenses, to include funding the Transportation Worker Identification Card.  These opportunities are highlighted in a dedicated “USCG National Maritime Center (NMC) Credentialing” tab for ratings with applicable USCG license alignment on the Navy COOL website. 

Sailors will be able to convert their military training records, billet assignment history and other credentialing data to a compatible civilian resume by the end of fiscal year 2019.  Using those standardized data, Sailors can easily research information on civilian and federal occupations mapped to their ratings at https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn or via the Navy COOL app available on the Google Play store or iTunes.

The goals for Rating Modernization are to provide greater choice and flexibility for our Sailors with respect to detailing and training, to provide greater flexibility for the Navy in assigning highly trained personnel, and to increase professional alignment with civilian employers. 

Rating Modernization supports Sailor 2025 initiatives through the goals of redefining career fields, improving talent management and the detailing process, offering more career choices, and expanding professional development opportunities.  These initiatives are intended to increase Fleet readiness, sustainability, and fit.

      The FBI has contacted a Navy veteran, Richard Osthoff, as part of an investigation into embattled Rep. George Santos and a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Osthoff's sick service dog. Osthoff confirmed the call from the FBI, and sources familiar with the matter confirmed the nature of the investigation -- which adds to the growing list of legal issues and controversies Santos, R-N.Y., is facing.
