Paragraph 3.A.2. Enlistments, Evaluations. and Advancements, COMDTINST M1000.2 (series), provides policy for these advancements. 

Follow the process in Section 5.A.4, Personnel and Pay Procedures Manual, PPCINST M1000.2 (series), to effect these advancements. 

Also see the PSC-EPM-1 E-2 to E-3 Advancement Guide (CG Portal LInk-CAC Logon Required)

 Ceremonial Advancements

I am pleased to announce the institution of a Ceremonial Advancement policy to allow Coast Guard enlisted members the best opportunity to plan, prepare, and execute meaningful advancement ceremonies that properly recognize the career milestone of advancing to the next pay grade, while also considering unit operations and Service needs. Current policy and procedures only allow for a brief planning window for enlisted advancement ceremonies from the release of the monthly Enlisted Personnel Advancement Authorization (EPAA), on or around the 20th of each month, and the actual advancement on the 1st day of the following month. This short planning window is often insufficient to make the logistical arrangements for family members and friends to witness and participate in the advancement ceremony.

Commanding Officers and Officers in Charge will be authorized to conduct Ceremonial Advancements at any point during an active advancement eligibility list. In doing so, commands shall consider a member’s relative placement on the list in order to approve a reasonable date that meets member desires and unit need.

Ceremonial Advancements are not the same as frocking and are not intended to change primary duties or privileges. COs/OICs should consider the full implications for the member and crew prior to conducting such advancement ceremonies. Members are authorized to assume the title and wear the insignia of the rate to which ceremoniously advanced, to include participating in CCTI for E7 selects. All other entitlements and protocols remain at the lower permanent rate/grade until the effective date of actual advancement, as listed in the CG PSC advancement announcement.

I greatly appreciate the work of the Chiefs’ Mess for their efforts in championing this initiative!

Source: PSC-EPM-2 Frocking CG Portal Page (CAC Logon Required)

Send Frocking request (use template linked below) to HQS-SMB-CGPSC-EPM-2-Admin@uscg.mil

Note: CO's are authorized to frock members without submitting a request to EPM-2, when frocking authorization is already granted in a members PCS orders.

The Advancement Certificate templates below can be used for frocking an enlisted member to the next higher paygrade.

Enlisted members above the cutoff on the current advancement eligibility list may be considered for frocking when:

(1) The higher rate is necessary to clearly establish the member's position when reporting to another agency/service for duty,

(2) The higher rate is necessary to ensure the member would be assigned government quarters commensurate with the rate in which serving,

(3) In selected instances in which the higher rate is a significant factor in establishing the member's stature, thereby enhancing their ability to carry out their duties successfully, or

(4) For the purpose of attending Patrol Forces Southwest Asia (PATFORSWA) pre-deployment training or the Chief Petty Officer Academy (CPOA) (Note: Frocking Authorization for CPOA attendance will be in the CPOA Order notes), when in receipt of orders to a position for which the member would otherwise be frocked.

Requests to frock enlisted members will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

See para 3.A.33, Enlistments, Evaluations. and Advancements, COMDTINST M1000.2 (series), for further guidance.

Request and Certificate Templates:

 Master Chief Advancement Panel (MCAP) (Active & Reserve)
 Meritorious Advancements

The Meritorious Advancement Program (MAP) is a talent management program designed to recognize superior performance and exceptional adherence to our core values that, in an Advancement Authority’s judgment, clearly warrant advancement. MAP provides the process to advance Petty Officers without participation in the servicewide examination (SWE) competition.

Refer to Meritorious Advancement Program, COMDTINST 1430.2 (series) for guidance on the program.

To minimize the administrative process, the required forms found at: https://cg.portal.uscg.mil/units/psc/psc-epm/SitePages/Advancements.aspx/ are to be utilized to determine candidate eligibility and streamline the meritorious advancement process.

 Supplemental and Striker Advancement List Policy and ProceduresUpdated


Requests for addition to the Supplemental Advancement List will be transitioned from ADMIN OIX to PPC Customer Care tickets effective December 1, 2021. Any requests submitted via ADMIN OIX or other means will not be accepted after January 15, 2022. This change will allow PPC to better track and manage requests in an effort to ensure members in the field continue to receive timely additions to the supplemental lists. If you have any questions please contact the ADV Branch Chief Mr. Wess McElroy. A link to PPC Customer care is below to assist you with your requests.

Completion of a Leadership and Management School (LAMS) Course is required for advancement to first class petty officer. Occasionally individuals incur complexities or extenuating circumstances when attempting to obtain a LAMS class quota, which are beyond the members’ control. LAMS completion deadline waivers are available to allow for certain provisions where individuals are unable to complete LAMS prior to the Servicewide Examination Eligibility Date (SED). PPC (ADV) has created a process guide which provides reference to policy, procedures and information on submitting Leadership and Management School (LAMS) completion deadline waivers to PPC.

About Advancement Certificates
Collapse All Expand All
 About Advancement Certificates

Certificates are, for the most part, CG or DD forms. However, they are not included in Internet forms libraries because they are limited distribution forms. Here's a list of the certificates you may be tasked with issuing. All links are to the CG Portal forms library (https://cg.portal.uscg.mil/library/forms/).


CG-5530, CERTIFICATE FOR ADVANCEMENT TO SEAMAN/FIREMAN (E-3) (Via "YNs Page" on CG Portal. Formatted for 2021 and later).
(Note: On the CG-5530 (that you download from the CG Portal forms page), the drop-down for the year field only goes to 2020. For 2021 and later, you must delete and type in the correct year. To do this, select any year from the list, place the cursor at the start of the date field and press the delete key. Then, type in the correct year.)

See the Creating Advancement Certificates Self Service for Commands User Guide and the accompanying tutorial for procedures.

Advancement certificates for pay grades E2 through E6 are done locally on SWSIII in the U. S. Coast Guard Adobe Forms program.

Certificates for promotion to warrant are done at CGPSC (opm).

The certificates for advancements to CPO, SCPO, and MCPO are completed by the PPC (adv) staff following completion of the Active Duty EPAAs and the Reserve ERAAs. The actual production of the certificates begins prior to the release of the EPAA and/or ERAA from CGPSC-epm-1 or CGPSC-rpm. Once the EPAA and/or ERAA appear on CGMS (Coast Guard Message System), a comparison is then made between the certificates produced and any changes made to the EPAA and/or ERAA by CGPSC. Normally, the processes of producing, verifying, and actually mailing the certificates are completed four working days following the release of the message. The certificates are then mailed to the members' units for appropriate presentations on the date of advancement. On occasion, PPC (adv) receives telephone calls and/or e-mails one or two days prior to the advancement date informing us that the certificate has not been received. Although this occurs very rarely, it is often enough that we have posted this blank certificate and MCPOCG letter containing the verbiage, whereby the unit can fill in the blanks and have the appropriate words while awaiting the receipt of the original. We sincerely hope you will never need to use this method, however, it is being posted, as a ready resource should that unfortunate event occur. Thank you!

Additional useful information -- With the exception of Recruiting Offices, PPC (adv) sends certificates only to those units having an officer on their Personnel Allowance List (PAL). PPC (adv) verifies if there is an officer on the unit PAL. If there is an officer PAL, the certificate is sent directly to the member's Department ID address. If there is not an officer assigned, the certificate is sent directly to the Operational Commander's OPFAC, for an officer of that command to make an appropriate presentation. This prevents us from mailing the certificate directly to the OIC of a Station, for example, and the newly advanced Master Chief simply receiving the certificate in the mail, with no appropriate presentation/pinning ceremony. OICs (not the person being advanced) may wish the certificate to be forwarded from another site if his/her desire is to present the certificate. 

 Servicewide Exam Q & A

Q.   What is cumulative sea duty vice creditable sea duty?

A.   There are two types of sea time for the SWE:

  1. Sea Time for Eligibility- Determines if you have the sea time necessary to compete for the SWE based on the requirements of the Enlisted Accessions, Evaluations, and Advancements, COMDTINST M1000.2(series), 3.A.15.c. The system looks at units that you were permanently attached to to get this number of years/months. TDY will not show up for this. If you have TDY sea time which will give you the additional sea time needed to become eligible to test, send an email to PPC (adv) requesting credit.
  2. Sea Time for Points- 2 points per year, with a maximum of 30 points, are given for sea time served on sea pay eligible vessels from 01Feb94 up to the eligibility date for the SWE. To determine this the system looks at your sea pay records and gives you point credits based on them. TDY if properly documented should be reflected in the sea pay records and you should receive the points for the TDY time. Keep in mind that if your PERSRU completes the documents to pay sea time for TDY periods, they will also have to stop your BAS for same periods. If you ride a ship, draw BAS and pay for meals, you will not draw sea pay or points.

Q.   How can I request a waiver for the SWE eligibility requirements?

A.   Waivers of eligibility requirements are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Note:  Before requesting a waiver of the SWE SED completion deadline for LAMS training, Commands should first obtain a LAMS quota from ETQC that allows the member to complete LAMS training prior to the SWE PDE correction deadline (1 April for the May SWE, 1 Sept for the Oct RSWE, and 1 Oct for the Nov SWE).

Submit all requests for deadline waivers a PPC Customer Care Trouble Ticket or via e-mail to ppc-dg-customercare@uscg.mil.

Q.   Can I request a waiver for sea time to be placed on a supplemental list?

A.   No, the date of the message to be placed on the supplemental list is the date all qualifications must be completed.

Q.   Can I request a waiver for time in rate for SWE?

A.   Waivers are not normally approved for TIR. Those advanced in Feb who are a month short by the next cycle will not be given the 1 month waiver to have a full year.

Q.   Can I lose my advancement eligibility due to NJP?

A.   The policy is that "from date of recommendation through advancement, the member must remain eligible"....so in the case of MAY02 SWE...the date of elig is 1FEB02, through advancement means the life of the list, which is December 31st of the following year for CPO's. So if at ANY time between these two dates a member "fails to remain elig"...the command is to advise PPC(adv) and info CGPC(epm-1) of that fact and the member is removed from the list.

Q.   Can I request to be advanced from an active duty list in the reserves following RELAD?

A.   No. You must remain on active duty to remain on an active duty to remain on an active duty advancement list. However, there are circumstances when you may advance based on your previous active duty list standing. Review the Reserve Policy Manual, COMDTINST M1001.28A, Chpt 7.C.7 for details.

Q.   Can I be placed a Supplemental Eligibility list if I've lost my Good Conduct eligibility?

A.   For 12 months prior to the request date to be placed on a supplemental list, and for the entire period from recommendation to advancement, personnel in the pay grades E-4 and E-5 must have no unsatisfactory conduct mark, court-martial or civil convictions, or NJP punishments.

  • The eligibility requirement does not state the members must have 12 month service, it simply states no misconduct in the previous 12 months. IAW Enlisted Accessions, Evaluations, and Advancements, COMDTINST M1000.2(series), 3.A.4, 6, 13

Q.   My unit is going to deployed during SWE exams, can we give the test on a day that differs from the scheduled date?

A.   Tests may never be given early. However, ships may administer within 10 days after the scheduled date if underway during the entire period. Any exam to be administered ashore after the prescribed time/date must be in the form of a "substitute" from PPC. Request via msg to PPC Customer Care. An individual substitute SWE may be allowed if member is medically unfit; family crisis; operationally unable to participate. For more info on substitutes see PPCCINST M1418.1(series).

Q.   If I lose my recommendation for advancement is there any way the CO can change my recommendation between semi-annual or annual evaluations?

A.   The CO can change the recommendation at any time he/she feels the member loses or regains the recommendation. That is done via semi or annual evaluations, or if between evals, the CO initiates a new EER in Direct Access and selects change of CO RECOMMENDATION (CORC) as the rating scale. If a recommendation is changed to Not Recommended the member, in reality, has "failed to remain eligible" for advancement and will be removed from any SWE/Advancement competition. The policy is "from date of recommendation through advancement, the member must remain eligible"... so if between the evals a member loses the recommendation for any reason, we remove the member from the list(s). Once a member is removed due to loss of eligibility, he/she can again earn the recommendation, however because the member "failed to remain eligible" for a period (even if a day) (eligibility date to advancement date or list termination date) they are not eligible to be reinstated on lists, they will be required to recompete when once they earn the recommendation again.

Q.   Can a member who exceeds the allowable weight standards be advanced?

A.   A member on an advancement list will have the advancement withheld until weight is met. Once met the unit sends a message to PPC and we change the status to eligible in the same place member was previously on the list. They will then be eligible when the next available billet is available or their name comes up. IAW Enlisted Accessions, Evaluations, and Advancements, COMDTINST M1000.2(series), 3.A.19.c(3)

  • However, if the list expires prior to the member meeting the weight standard, they will have to re-compete in a new SWE

Q.   A) If a member is on weight probation and then becomes pregnant can they be advanced? B) Do the standards still apply? C) And how long can their spot on the advancement list be held?"

A.   "Per COAST GUARD WEIGHT AND BODY FAT STANDARDS PROGRAM MANUAL, COMDTINST M1020.8(series), members who become pregnant will not be measured to determine compliance until they return to a fit-for-full-duty status. Members placed in a weight or fat loss probationary status prior to pregnancy shall have theirprobationary period held in abeyance."

  • The correct answers based on the ref above are; A) Yes. B) No, service women are exempt from weight and body fat standard during pregnancy, and for six months afterwards (12 months for nursing mothers). C) If being withheld for reasons listed in 3.A.19.c of Enlisted Accessions, Evaluations, and Advancements, COMDTINST M1000.2(series), until expiration of eligibility list.

Q.   Can a person on the weight program, above the cut for advancement, who is not eligible to advance and won't make weight prior to the list expiration date, take the next service-wide?

A.   Because the member is above the cut we will not mail the member a test. The command should send a message to PPC(adv) requesting the member receive a test.

Q.   Can Enlisted Accessions, Evaluations, and Advancements, COMDTINST M1000.2(series), Art 3.a.8.e.2(EOCT waiver granted by a CO) be applied to a member requesting placement on a supplemental advancement list?

A.   No. 3.A.8.e.2 only applies to waivers of EOCT's to participate in SWE exams. When the SWE announcement messages are published they always list SWE waivers(those ratings authorized advancement through supplemental advancement lists), and EOCT waivers(those ratings which may take the SWE without an EOCT), but will never waive both SWE and EOCT for the same rating/rank. One or the other, or both, are always required to advance.

Q.   Is there any way that a member who has received an NJP can still take the SWE?

A.   In accordance with Enlisted Accessions, Evaluations, and Advancements, COMDTINST M1000.2(series), Art. 5.B.1.a.(1), a set of NJP marks must be completed on the member assigning him/her an unsatisfactory conduct mark. Enlisted Accessions, Evaluations, and Advancements, COMDTINST M1000.2(series), Art 3.A.13.b, states that personnel in grade E-4 and E-5 must have no unsatisfactory conduct mark for a period of 12 months prior to the Terminal Eligibility Date (TED) of a service wide exam(eg: The TED for the MAY 2004 SWE is 1JAN2005. If the NJP occurred in February 2004, the member will fall short of the required 12 months good conduct by the TED). If the member is currently E6 or above, Article 3.A.5.b.3 applies and the member must have 24 months of good conduct prior to the eligibility date.

  • The new good conduct period is computed from the day after NJP marks to the TED to determine eligibility, using the 12 or 24 month rule.

Q.   When entering new training in Direct Access, I find the member already has existing training but for a different time period, can I just type over it with the new date?

A.   No. You must hit the add sign and add a new row. Each time training is completed it is considered a new entry regardless of how many times a member has performed the same training in the past.

Q.   Do SPO/PERSRU's advance members based on the EPAA?

A.   No. Units should never advance member's on the EPAA, this job is done by PPC(adv). If units accidentally advance members' based on the EPAA, they should contact PPC(adv) immediately to avoid confusion and possible erroneous advancements. The same is true for Striker's and Supplemental advancement.

Q.   Why is my RAW Score changing?


After you take the SWE, your answer sheet is immediately scanned and scored when it arrives at PPC-ADV. That "raw" score is automatically posted in your Direct Access under:

Home > Self Service > Employee > View > My Profile > Qualifications (tab) > Test/Examinations Section. After all members have tested and raw scores are posted to DA, they are also published on your LES the month after the SWE.

After your initial raw score is published the Test Writers (Subject Matter Experts/SME's) review all of the challenge sheets that members completed while testing when they disagreed with a question or the answers on their test. The SME reviews the challenged questions and makes a determination to:

A. Make no change(s)
B. Drop a question (giving everyone credit for it)
C. Choose a different answer from the four choices as the correct answer

If a question is dropped, everyone receives credit for it and your raw score goes up one point. However, if the SME determines that the answer to a question should be, for example, "A" in stead of "D", then your score can go up, go down, or stay the same. For Example:

  • If you originally picked "D", you will loose a point because it's no longer the correct answer.
  • If you originally picked "A", you will gain a point because it now became the correct answer.
  • If you initially chose "C", your score will not change because you had it wrong both times.

So, remember that your "raw" score is not final until all challenge questions have been reviewed by the SME's and the rescore takes place. This final raw score will be updated in your Direct Access Test Results page and should be available within a month following the exam.
