Notes from the AD Detailing Team
There are significant changes to CMS/ID and the process to how Sailors are selected for billets as advetised on CMS/ID. It is critical that you understand the new selection process. Ensure you contact your respective Detailer 13-15 months prior to your PRD to let them know your preferences and concerns you may have. Please read NAVADMIN 231/17

Career enhancing billets will be open for Recruit Divisions Commanders and Recruiters. There are substantial monetary and other benefits available for these High Impact 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)
