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

Servicewide Exam(s)(SWE) in which they participated. Personnel who have 
been invalidated must be recommended and qualify again through a new 
SWE competition.
3. Commanding Officers shall determine if pre-advancement eligibility 
requirements have or have not 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

cancel the advancement of ineligible personnel per Article 3.A.20, 
3.A.26.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

luations%20Branch.aspx but is subject to change. This EPAA, to include

RANK as it appears in the Global Address List (GAL) from the Self 
Service portal at https://EDMS.uscg.mil/SelfService. 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. See this
