NCM-SEP AS Promotion
« on: April 23, 2012, 08:41:47 »
Hi Guys,

I have used the search but came up empty for my question.

I am a WENG TECH and have just finished my first year of Electronics Engineering at a civi college. I am trying to find out more information about the promotion to Able Seaman. I know that upon graduating my second year I am promoted to Acting LS and have found literature stating that; however, I have had no luck finding anything about the AS promotion except for civi news articles and a friend at MI tell me they are getting theirs after they graduate first year in December.

Can anyone give me a CANFORGEN reference or anything a little more concrete please??

Thank you all.

The abbreviation for Able Seaman is actually AB (derives from "Able Bodied"). 

According to MARCORD 9-61 (Naval Technician Training Plan), promotion to AB is "Successful completion of first Academic Year and AGJL Qualification".  AGJL was the code for OSQAB, but I don't think they call it that anymore...I think it's called NETP (Naval Environmental Training Program).
