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 http://cglink.uscg.mil/
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's SharePoint 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.

in the EPAA is no longer indicated. The original rank order number may
be found at the Pay and Personnel Center SharePoint site
20Service%20Validation%20and%20Data%20Corrections.aspx but is subject to change.
This EPAA, to include unit designations, will be available on PPC's Sharepoint
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 https://EDMS.uscg.mil/SelfService. This can be done
as a standard user without requiring admin‐privileges, does not require
