SUBJ/RE-ESTABLISH TORPEDOMANS MATE (TM) GENERAL RATING TO REPLACE MACHINISTS 
MATE, NON-NUCLEAR, WEAPONS (SUBMARINE) (MMW) SERVICE RATING.//

RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the re-establishment of the Torpedomans Mate 
(TM) general rating with a Rating Control Number (RCN) of 3702.  This re-
establishment is primarily administrative in nature and is expected to have 
minimal impact on the Fleet.
Ultimately, the TM general rating will replace the Machinists Mate, Non-
Nuclear, Weapons (Submarines) (MMW) service rating in all aspects and apply 
to active-duty, full-time support and selected reserve Sailors and billets.

2.  Re-establishing the TM general rating is in direct support of Sailor 2025 
and Rating Modernization initiatives to continue to empower Sailors and 
expand professional development opportunities.
Sailor 2025 focuses on improving the ability of our Navy to develop, reward 
and retain the force of tomorrow.  By re-establishing the TM general rating, 
the Navy is responding directly to feedback from the Fleet, enabling 
ownership and pride by the Sailors in the rating and strengthening their role 
in a strong, unified future submarine force.

3.  The re-establishment of the TM general rating will take effect on 1 
October 2019.  The following information identifies to whom the new general 
rating will be applied:
    a.  The primary personnel and billets to receive the new general rating 
will be MMWs serving as enlisted master code (EMC) C151 with a subspecialty 
in weapons.
    b.  EMC C151 delineates MMW personnel with a designator code of 1, 2 or 8 
and Navy enlisted classification codes of either Q33A, 717B, 718B, 737B, 
738B, 756A, 774B, 782B, or 789A.  Sailors within these criteria will be 
converted to the TM general rating.

4.  Sailors serving in the MMW service rating will be referred to as a TM.  
The re-establishment of the TM general rating will not require a change of 
uniform, but will require an updated rating badge.

5.  There will not be a change to the Navy-wide advancement exam policies and 
there will not be a change to the administration schedule of examinations.  
However, due to the exam development, exam ordering and shipping schedules, 
TM candidates may be taking MMW exams but the advancement authorized rating 
will be TM.

6.  There will not be changes to the E-7 to E-9 evaluation and selection 
board processes.  However, TM candidates may be taking MMW exams, but the 
advancement authorized rating will be TM.  The first Navy-Wide Advancement 
Examinations for the TM rating will be administered as follows:

    a.  E4/5/6 Active Duty cycle - September 2020
    b.  E4/5/6 SELRES cycle -  February 2021
    c.  E7 Active Duty cycle - January 2021
    d.  E7 SELRES cycle - February 2021

7.  There will be no changes to sea/shore flow.

8.  This NAVADMIN does not implement any changes for Commander, Navy 
Recruiting Command (CNRC).

9.  This NAVADMIN does not modify any previous guidance concerning early 
separation, Fleet Reserve, conversion packages or career waypoints re-
enlistment requests.

10.  The primary points of contact regarding this general rating and RCN re-
establishment are as follows:
    a.  Submarine, Non-Nuclear, Enlisted Community Manager:  CDR Jared C. 
Smith at (901) 874-2082/DSN 882 or via e-mail at jared.c.smith(at)navy.mil
    b.  Submarine Ratings Technical Advisor:  ETRCS(SS) Jimmy R.
