“Unaccompanied enlisted students E-4 and below will be housed in the Command Combined Bachelor Quarters (CBQ), which also has a link in our Welcome Center. Officer and senior enlisted (E-5 and above) students will not be housed at the CBQ, regardless of marital status, and must make arrangements to find other living accommodations. Because rooms at the CBQ are limited, reporting staff E-6 and below geographic bachelors will be assigned on a case-by-case basis, and only after approval of the Geographic Bachelors Review Board. No E-7 and above staff member will be assigned to the CBQ as geographic bachelors.”

 Navy Students

On day one of your training at Eglin, you will be required to take the EOD PRT as outlined in MILPERSMAN 1220-100. Navy students will not commence training until they have successfully passed the PRT.

Uniform for check-in is the seasonal dress uniform for enlisted and service khaki for officers. All students, including those coming from Panama City must check in with their service, medical, and dental records, as well as their PRT folders.
 Medical Screening Process for EOD Training

“All Navy applicants for EOD Training Pipeline must be prescreened medically before they are accepted. Applicants must have a current report of medical examination and report of medical history documented on DD Forms 2807 and 2808 undersigned by an Undersea Medical Officer.
