Joint Officer Management (JOM)
Joint Officer Management (PERS-45J) tracks and documents officers joint qualifications and progress towards Joint Qualified Officer (JQO) designation. PERS-45J also provides support for various promotion boards, provides guidance regarding attainment of joint qualifications, assists detailers and placement officers, and liaises with the Joint Staff regarding JOM policy and legislation.
We have attempted to design these pages for simplicity. There are links to various sites and documents to assist you with researching or finding answers to your questions.
The FAQ section is made up of the most common questions we receive over the phone or email and others we feel are important to the fleet officer WRT career progression. If your question is not answered here please contact our office.
Joint Qualification System (JQS):
The John Warner National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) 2007, gave authority to The Secretary of Defense to establish different levels of joint qualification, as well as the criteria for qualification at each level. This is known as the Joint Qualification System (JQS). Although most officers will continue to receive their joint tour credit via a standard Joint Duty Assignment List (JDAL) billet (aka S-JDA), the JQS provides an alternative path for accruing joint tour credit. Officers are able to self-nominate their non-JDAL joint tour experiences (aka E-JDA), having direct relevance to the Title 10 definition of “Joint Matters,” for accrued joint tour credit. A web-based application is available to facilitate the self-nomination process.
See JQS E-JDA Self Nomination page for details.
