    Promotion Policy Changes

    Col Penny

    Attention All Hands,


    Just about every year we tweak the promotion policy somewhat. Now is time for our annual tweaks.


    We have noticed, and discussed, the past couple years the degrading meaning of some ranks because they are too 'easy' to get, and that they are not treated or taught as well as they could. While we continue to make steps towards better education, we are today implementing a better experience need for everyone.


    Effective 15JAN17 (after WSD):


    • The amount of of Time in Grade (and thus points, of course) required for almost all enlisted ranks will be increased
    • Category B requirements for Corporal and Sergeant will be reduced from 3x to 2x, and for SSgt+ will be reduced from 3x to 1.5x (this is the old system)
    • Officer TIG requirements will not be changing at this time (subject to change after WSD, they are being examined), but CSO requirements are being reduced. The reason for this is because the math was way off. All CSE/CSO requirements are calculated to the minimum amount of points one would acquire with 100% attendance (14 per month) in the TIG period, plus an extra 15% effort for all officer and NCO ranks. Officers were, somehow, miscalculated to be 21 points per month. This has been corrected.
    • Officer Category B requirements will remain 3x


    The new requirements will be as follows:

    Any questions about these changes may be made here.


    As stated previously officers may also see a TIG increase after WSD. For now only enlisted TIG has been affected.
