MASTER-AT-ARMS RATING (MA)
*** Harbor Patrol*** We need HIGHLY MOTIVATED Sailors to apply for HPU billets on CMS/ID! Ensure you meet all the prerequisites found on CANTRAC.
NAVADMIN 226/12 - Leaders, too many Sailors are not informed about this important announcement and how it affects their career. Let's take this bull by the horns and wrangle it in by getting this info to our Sailors.
Contact information on CMS – It is imperative your contact information is current and up-to-date on CMS/ID. The contact information on CMS/ID is how you can assist Detailers when it comes to communicating with you.
CMS Applications - Do not short yourself by applying for billets outside your current paygrade. Pay substitution requires PERS-4013 (Enlisted Placement/Rating Specialist) and gaining command approval. Continuing to apply for billets outside of your paygrade may result in lost opportunities for the Sailor.
Execute Orders as Written! - If your orders have an Intermediate-Stop (I-Stop), it serves a purpose. When Sailors take it upon themselves and "class up" before their reserved date as annotated, it causes a ripple effect in regards to funding. Given our tight fiscal situation, it's best we read and follow our orders thoroughly.
Atlantic Underwater Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC) – Bahamas - Due to insufficient housing accommodations at AUTEC, all military billets at AUTEC will be detailed as UNACCOMPANIED tours and will cease all future military dependents from moving to Andros. If you have any questions contact MAC(SW) Jose Ramirez.
EFMP (Exceptional Family Member Program) – Ensure your EFM status is updated every 3 years or 9 months before your PRD. This will ensure your detailer can accommodate your specific needs with minimal delay.
*** Commands should visit the Placement Management (PERS-4013) for questions regarding billets advertised on CMS/ID ***
Maintenance and Material Management (3-M) Coordinators at Sea (3MC)
Are there no in-rate billets available for you at sea? Are you a highly motivated leader and desire increased responsibility and challenge? Do you desire an assignment to a specific geographical area? Consider assignment as a 3MC. Contact your detailer to determine your eligibility. Remember – your detailer must release you to the 3MC Detailer before he (the 3MC Detailer) can discuss specific duty station assignments with you. Check out the 3MC webpage for additional information.
