PERSONNEL QUALIFICATION STANDARDS (PQS)

Governed by OPNAVINST 3500.34G, the Personnel Qualification Standards (PQS) Program is used by officer and enlisted personnel to obtain the minimum level of competency required to perform specific duties. A PQS is a compilation of the minimum knowledge and skills that an individual must demonstrate in order to qualify for watch standing or perform other specific routine duties necessary for the safety, security, or proper operation of a ship, aircraft, or support system.  PQS is available on MyNavy Portal (MNP).  Download of all PQS products is restricted to Active or Reserve Navy and Coast Guard personnel only.  MNP has instructions for any other U.S. government personnel or contractors on how to request a PQS.  You may also communicate with the PQS Development Group through our “Contact Us” page; use the contact form and choose “NETC PQS/RTM/NRTC Program Manager” as the recipient.

Log in to MyNavy Portal (CAC login required).
At the top of the page, click on “PROFESSIONAL RESOURCES.”
Select "PERSONNEL QUALIFICATION STANDARDS (PQS)."
 
NONRESIDENT TRAINING COURSES (NRTC) AND RATE TRAINING MANUALS (RTM)

Sailors often study NAVEDTRAs that are classified as Navy Non-Resident Training Courses (NRTC) and Rate Training Manuals (RTM) to prepare for advancement exams or expand their rating knowledge.  NRTC and RTM self-study packages are on the Navy e-Learning (NeL) and My Navy Portal (MNP) websites. Both are CAC enabled.

Navy e-Learning – https://learning.nel.navy.mil (CAC log in required)

Formal course enrollment is required for assessments. On NeL, select the course catalog tab near the top of the page, and within the Learning Category, select “Navy Rate Training Courses.” NRTC and RTMs are segmented by chapter, and Sailors can choose to either save or launch the chapter. After each chapter is launched and completed, the subsequent assessment is available. All NRTC/RTM individual assessments within each chapter must be accomplished in this manner to record completion.

One of the perks is NeL will grade, offer certificates, and record completions automatically, entering them into a Sailor’s Electronic Training Jacket.

My Navy Portal – https://www.mnp.navy.mil (CAC log in required)

Sailors should look under “Professional Resources,” then select “Personnel Qualifications Standards (PQS).” Downloadable PDFs provide assessment questions similar to the course completion assessment format in NeL and allow Sailors to accomplish all learning/study offline if necessary; however, credit for NRTC/RTM completion can only be accomplished now within NeL.

Contact My Navy Career Center (MNCC) Help Desk via MNP under "Help & Info" or through the amber button in the bottom right-hand corner, by calling (833) 330-MNCC or (833) 330-6662 or email askmncc@navy.mil for NeL enrollment questions.

NOTE: There is no workaround to accessing online training through Navy eLearning without a CAC.
 
For any questions on NRTCs and RTMs, please send a message through our “Contact Us” page; use the contact form and choose “NETC PQS/RTM/NRTC Program Manager” as the recipient.
