Advancement Policy Update - Substitute Exam Orders Supporting Maternity Leave

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


In chapter four of the recently updated Advancement Manual (BUPERSINST 1430.16G), there are five examples of reasons for ordering substitute exams to include Maternity Leave (ML). Advancement candidates who take Additional Maternity Leave (AML) in blocks are required to be present at the examination site on the regularly scheduled Navy-wide Advancement Exam (NWAE) date, if NWAE-eligible and not medically incapacitated.

The candidate shares equal responsibility with the chain of command to ensure that an AML leave plan is developed to accommodate taking the NWAE on the regularly scheduled administration date. AML is an authorized reason for ordering a substitute exam when execution of ML taken consecutively with AML does not permit administration on the scheduled NWAE date, and the ML/AML period does not exceed the substitute exam ordering/administration window. Refer to section 401.i of the Advancement Manual for more information.
