Active-duty Navy chief petty officers (CPO) interested in shaping the future of their rating are needed to serve as Subject Matter Experts (SME) for upcoming Advancement Examination Readiness Review (AERR) panels.
NAVADMIN 025/19, released Jan. 31, announced the AERR schedule for April to June 2019. Selected AERR panel members will work as fleet SMEs for their respective rating to develop future E4 - E7 rating advancement exams.
Navy CPOs (E7 - E9) on active duty, Full Time Support (FTS), and Reservists on Active Duty for Special Work (ADSW) are encouraged to take part in the process by reaching out to their respective Type Commander (TYCOM) for application information.
"Fleet rating experts bring critical knowledge and experience to the AERRs, as that’s what ensures relevance in our exams by identifying Sailors with the rating knowledge needed for advancement," said Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) Command Master Chief Gregory Prichard. “The Navy has a lot of confidence in enlisted exams due to the hands-on involvement by the chiefs’ mess. AERRs are considered a career highlight because of the direct impact this work has on each rating.”
AERRs vary in length between one-to-two weeks and exam readiness reviews are held throughout the year, with each specific rating being reviewed on an annual basis. The reviews are held at NETPDC at Saufley Field in Pensacola, Fla. AERR participants receive Temporary Duty Travel (TDY) orders from their parent command, funded by NETPDC.
To view the annual AERR schedule, locate a specific rating recruitment and selection point of contact (POC), log into MyNavy Portal my.navy.mil, and search under Professional Resources/Navy Advancement Center/AERR. TYCOM POCs are listed and specific AERR eligibility requirements are provided on the page.
NAVADMIN 025/19 provides additional information and a listing of upcoming rating conferences scheduled for the next six months. Additional quarterly AERR schedule NAVADMINs will be released this year for eligible Sailors to participate in the review process.
NETPDC’s mission is to provide products and services that enable and enhance education, training, career development, and personnel advancement throughout the Navy. Primary elements of the command include the Voluntary Education (VOLED) Department, the Navy Advancement Center (NAC), and the Resources Management Department.
