ESTABLISHMENT OF CWT RATING

Please contact your CWT Detailers for more information.

 
CWT RATING-SPECIFIC SPECIAL PROGRAMS

INTERACTIVE ON-NET OPERATOR (ION) TRAINING
Sailors selected to participate in ION will complete a rigorous training pipeline and are considered highly trained Network Operators. Following training, Sailors possessing NECs H13A-H16A are required to complete a minimum of two consecutive ION tours.

Please be mindful that the length of the screening processes could potentially cause a Sailor to lose looks when entering into their PRD negotiation window, if not selected.

 
*** Sailors interested in enrolling in the ION training pipeline must be released by their Detailer at least 15 months prior to entering their PRD negotiation window. An EPAR/1306 must be submitted through the Sailor's chain of command to screen for ION; if approved, follow-on instructions will be provided by the Detailer. ***
