Reserve NOBC Updates


Welcome to the Supply Corps Reserve NOBC Information Page!

All Supply Corps Reserve officer NOBC and AQD requests may be submitted electronically to the Supply Corps Selected Reserve Career Counselor, (

Supply Corps Reserve officers with any questions may email or call (901) 874-4624. 

For NOBC and AQD requests, review the NOOCS manual to determine which NOBC applies to you, then complete the NOBC/AQD request form that is linked at the bottom of this page.  Once completed, forward your request and all documents to Reserve Career Counselor.

Familiarize yourself with page C-4, section 3c of the NOBC instruction (For Officers in the Reserve Component (RC)) regarding the minimum awarding criteria for the different types of orders (i.e. RC billet, ADOS, MOB, etc.).  NOBC’s are awarded based on the experience acquired as a result of performance in one billet, not a combination of several billets.  Members must achieve a minimum 5 months on active duty or 18 months in a pay status BIN.  Ensure you identify per billet a maximum of two NOBCs (which includes the assigned NOBC per the BIN#) that directly reflect the experience gained as noted in FITREP Block 41.  For example, NCHB-10, assigned NOBC 1215 Cargo Handling Officer and additional 3290 Training Officer; USS SHIP, assigned NOBC 1918 General Supply Officer and additional 1935 Ships Store Officer.
Familiarize yourself with the description for each AQD series to determine which AQDs to request.  For example, the C-series AQDs pertain to Line Officers in shore assignments for which Supply Officers are not eligible.
*When requesting an AQD, ensure you identify which billet you are requesting the AQD for in your request.  For example, I am requesting AQD 929 for my tour at NCHB 14, etc.
Requests for AQDs and NOBCs must be split with no more than five AQDs and or NOBCs per request for each qualification type.
