CVN Nuclear CPOs
Greetings from Millington! I wanted to take a moment to share with you an outstanding opportunity and career expectation of senior nuclear operators known as instructor duty. Nuclear Instructor Duty is a great way to identify yourself to the CPO board as a hand-selected "Top Gun." As you are aware, the Navy's Nuclear Propulsion Program has training sites in Ballston Spa, New York and Charleston, South Carolina. These are the locations where our next generation of nuclear operators are born and raised. Being a Nuclear Instructor not only is the expectation but it gives you the chance to make significant positive impact on the lives of our future warriors, it also gives you excellent personal and professional growth opportunities such as advanced qualifications (EWS, EOOW, Master Training Specialist), leadership (LPO/LCC), and personal education as all sites have degree programs that are flexible with the work schedule. Please see MILPERSMAN Article 1306-957.

Hello from Millington! I want to take a moment to discuss some career milestones that all Sailors need for advancement. At the top of that list is Nuclear Instructor Duty. The CPO board has routinely recognized nuclear instructors as the top performers. The Navy’s Nuclear Propulsion Program has training sites in Ballston Spa, New York and Charleston, South Carolina. These are the places where you can go and grow our next nuclear operators and ensure the continued success of our program. Being a Nuclear Instructor not only gives you the chance to make significant positive impact on our community, but also gives excellent personal and professional growth opportunities, such as advanced qualifications (EWS/EOOW), Master Training Specialist, and personal education.
For our up-and-coming SCPO candidates, are you ready for the challenging assignment as an EDMC? I have available openings for most geographical areas. For our chiefs, if you haven’t started your EDMC qualifications, you need to get them done. This is required for your advancement to SCPO. Please see MILPERSMAN Article 1306-957 for instructor duty and COMSUBFORINST 1552.20 for EDMC qualifications.
