PERS - 4010E3


Females looking for shore duty, other than in their rate and wish to expand their leadership skills are a great fit for this Program!

The Women Ashore Program consists of 162 billets, ranging from E4-E6, that are specifically for ALL Active Duty female Sailors whom are fit for full duty and are eligible for their Shore Duty rotation.  There is a variety of duties that are available for these female Sailors ranging from Brig, TPU, SERE, and instructor duties, to basic duty onboard Naval Stations both stateside and overseas.

Women Ashore billets are advertised in My Navy Assignments (MNA) under the 9999 NEC.  After speaking with your detailer, Sailors can submit an application in MNA upon entering their permanent change of station orders negotiation window, 12 months prior to their projected rotation date. The selection phase is the same as rating detailer.

If selected for a Women Ashore duty billet, the special programs detailer will work with a Sailor's rating detailer to get them released.  The required obligated service for the program is 36 months.  Depending on the type of duty a Sailor is selected for will decipher the type of screening that will be required.  All Sailors who are selected for TPU, Brig, SERE, or NACIC duty under the Women Ashore Program will be required to complete a special programs screening  as outlined in the respective MILPERSMAN articles.

There are currently 35 different UIC's that encompass these billets in their overall manning.
