Specialty Career Path 

The Surface Warfare Community developed and has been utilizing officers in Specialty Career Paths (SCPs) since January of 2005. SCP has been a truly successful initiative that has provided us with a cadre of officers with critical skills in key navy mission areas, and it is now time to expand SCP to the aviation and submarine communities.

The SCP program provides alternatives to the traditional command at sea career path and supports the demand for URL LCDR/CDR/CAPT expertise in growing and expanding mission areas. The following SCP options will be opening to qualified candidates:

  • Operations Analysis
  • Financial Management
  • Naval Operational Planner
  • Antiterrorism/Force Protection
  • Shore Installation Management
  • Antisubmarine Warfare
  • Mine Warfare
  • Missile Defense
  • Strategic Sealift
  • Education and Training Management

Benefits and Opportunities of Selection

  • Designated SCP billets within specialty area
  • Specialty training and experience
  • Potential to screen SCP CO and SCP XO
  • Career milestone billets within each specialty area
