2. The Commanding Officer's (CO's) recommendation for advancement (Ready) must be maintained for the period from recommendation to advancement. In addition, E-7, E-8, and E-9 candidates must not have an unsatisfactory conduct mark on an enlisted evaluation for 24 months prior to the terminal eligibility date. Personnel failing to maintain the CO's recommendation (Ready) for this period shall be invalidated from the Service Wide Exam (SWE) and Master Chief Advancement Panel (MCAP) in which they participated. Personnel who have been invalidated must be recommended and qualify again through a new SWE or MCAP competition.

3. COs shall determine if advancement eligibility requirements for the authorized grade have been met. Per Ref B, specific changes and instructions for EPQs and RPQs are now captured in a semi-annual memo approved by FORCECOM Training Division at 320dcb99. If appropriate, a CO shall withhold or cancel the advancement of ineligible personnel per Article 3.A.21, 3.A.27.f or 4.D.3 of Ref A. When advancement is to be withheld or cancelled, the CO shall advise PPC (ADV) by e-mail via AOIX at CMD-SMB-CG-PPC with CG PSC as information addressee at CMD-SMB-CG-PSC. Please note C2OIX does not transfer to AOIX. See CG PSC-EPM Portal site at for additional guidance. 

4. Per Ref D, the requirement for all E-6 members to attend the Chief Petty Officer Academy (CPOACAD) prior to advancement to Chief Petty Officer is temporarily suspended. Members must attend CPOACAD prior to advancement to Senior Chief Petty Officer. Members must have successfully completed the Senior Enlisted Leadership Course (SELC) prior to advancement to Master Chief Petty Officer. COMDT (CG-128) is the Program Manager for the enlisted leadership continuum and the single point of contact for all requests for CPOACAD and SELC waivers from advancement policy.

5. Per Article 3.A.10 of Ref A, personnel in certain ratings must meet security clearance requirements for advancement.

6. COs shall ensure personnel advancing to pay grades E-7 thru E-9 obligate required service prior to advancement per Article 3.A.21.c of Ref A.

The original rank order number may be found at the Pay and Personnel Center CG Portal site but is subject to change. This EPAA, to include unit designations, will be available on PPC's CG Portal site.

8. Upon approved advancement, members are authorized to change their RANK as it appears in the Global Address List (GAL) from the Self Service portal at This can be done as a standard user without requiring admin-privileges, does not require a call to CGFIXIT, and does not require a CGFIXIT Ticket.
