Notes from the AM Detailing Team
As of 4 March 2013, the AM rating in pay grades E-5 thru E-7 are no longer eligible for the SDIP incentive. Refer to SDIP for additional information.
There are significant changes to CMS/ID and the process to how Sailors are selected for billets as advertised on CMS/ID. It is critical that you understand the new selection process. Please see NAVADMIN 226/12 for further information.
We have immediate openings for career enhancing billets for Recruit Division Commanders and Recruiters. There are substantial monetary and other benefits available for these Sailorization billets. Go to RDC and Recruiting for benefits and eligibility requirements.
- The Career Navigator Program (formerly Fleet RIDE) introduces a new terminology designed to change how we think, discuss, and apply enlisted career management processes in order to promote proactive Sailor involvement in their careers. Please refer to Career Waypoints (C-WAY) for additional information.
