Reserve Command


Reserve Command is a tremendous Command opportunity and an important Reserve Management milestone for TAR Officers. Preparation for command is an iterative process that builds upon experience, qualifications, judgment, and knowledge acquired during multiple tours. 

Reserve Command Screen/Slate:  A 4-Step Process
Complete CQOB -> Eligible to be Screened -> Screen at Board -> Reserve Command Slate

Reserve Command Eligibility
A Command Qualification Oral Board (CQOB) is required in order for one to be eligible for command administrative screening.  

All CQOB completions/endorsements need to be forwarded to one’s respective detailer so that the proper AQD (“2D1”) is awarded and entered into one’s record.  This AQD is one of the primary ways in which PERS-46 ensures all eligible members are screened for command.  Please refer to COMNAVRESFORCOM INSTRUCTION 1412.1G for more detailed information on Reserve command requirements.

Forward a copy of oral board completion letters to one’s respective detailer and the TAR Placement Officer NLT 01 September in order to be considered eligible for screening and considered for upcoming slates if positively screened. 

Officers who have successfully screened for command with their parent community are not required to complete the CQOB qualification process.

Reserve Command Screening 
Administrative screening for Reserve command occurs annually (each September) during the Reserve Major Command/O6 NRC Screening board.    

The Reserve Command Administrative Screening Board selects the most fully qualified officers with no set quotas.  Reserve Command Screening does NOT guarantee an officer will be slated to command of a NRC or RTAG.     

O3-O5 Reserve Command Slating 
O3-O5 Reserve Command slating occurs semi-annually in April and October each year (NRC O6 slating occurs year-round and is managed by the PERS-46 Division Director).  Visit the Reserve Command Slating web page for future projections and more details.  Numerous factors/variables are considered during the Reserve Command slating process, including individual preferences, career progression, PRDs, and needs of the Navy.      

Officers that screen for Reserve command but do not slate will be held in the bank for future slating.      

Complete eligibility requirements for Reserve command are outlined in CNRFCINST 1412.1G
