encouraged to participate in the upcoming SWE competition provided they 
remain eligible to compete.

valid only for a specific competition and must be renewed for each succeeding 
competition. The CO's recommendation for advancement must be maintained for 
the period from recommendation to advancement. Members failing to maintain

recommended and qualify again through a new SWE competition. 
7. Commanding Officers shall ensure basic eligibility and rating specific

the SWE advancement eligibility list(s) due to not meeting these 
requirements, the CO shall advise PPC (ADV) by e-mail via AOIX at CMD-SMB-CG-

8. Per Ref C, members newly above the cutoff for E-7 or E-8 must complete the 
Chief Petty Officer Academy (CPOACAD) to be eligible to advance to the next 
higher paygrade.  Members will be automatically slated for FY-20 convenings 
based on the member’s position on the advancement eligibility list. Members 
above the cutoff for E-9 must complete the Senior Enlisted Leadership Course 
(SELC) to be eligible to advance to E-9 and must submit an Electronic 
Training Request for the course.  COMDT (CG-128) is the Program Manager for
