Cyber Warrant Officer Program Broadens Eligibility

Cyber Warrant Officer Program Broadens Eligibility

By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Andrea Perez, Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs.

Millington, Tennessee -- October 25, 2013 -- (NNS) -- In order to meet the increasing demand for officers with specific computer network operations knowledge, skills and abilities, requirements for the Cyber Warrant Officer Commissioning Program have changed, Navy officials said Oct. 25.

NAVADMIN 259/13 outlines amendments to the program. The following is a summary of the changes:

* The 9308 Navy Interactive ON-NET (ION) Operator NEC (Navy Enlisted Classification) has been removed as a requirement. * Cryptologic Technician Networks rated Sailors who have been certified as Cyber Targeteers, Cyber Fire Support Planners, Cyber Fire Support Coordinators, Cyber Weaponeers and Endpoint Exploitation Analysts are now considered highly competitive candidates. * Information System Technician rated Sailors who have graduated from the Naval Postgraduate School with a Master of Science in Applied Cyber Operations have been added as highly competitive candidates.

Chief Warrant Officer Daryn Bartlett, assigned to Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) Reserve Unit 301, Everett, Wash., teaches a Security Plus certification class to information systems technicians from 11 San Diego commands. SPAWAR sends fly-away network operations support teams to the fleet to provide tailored information technology and information assurance and security training required to maintain command, control, communications, computers and intelligence readiness.

"We wanted to increase the number of applicants who are eligible for the Cyber Warrant Officer Commissioning Program," said Capt. Baron V. Reinhold, director of Military Community Management, Bureau of Naval Personnel. "Removing the 9308 NEC requirement allows for a larger pool of highly-qualified and competitive candidates to apply for the program."

According to Reinhold, 9308 NEC duties represent only one of ten work roles the Navy requires to execute offensive and defensive cyber operations.

The Cyber Warrant Officer designator was established in 2010. The program identifies, develops, and commissions technically proficient Sailors to operate, analyze, plan and direct full-spectrum cyber operations.

All prerequisite criteria for the Chief Warrant Officer Commissioning Program are applicable to the Cyber Warrant Officer program. Selections to the program will be made via the annual Active duty and Reserve Limited Duty Officer (LDO) and Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) In-Service Procurement Boards.

Applications for the Fiscal Year 2015 active-duty and Reserve LDO/CWO In-Service Procurement Boards must be postmarked no later than Oct. 1, 2013. However, for Cyber Warrant Officer applicants only, the deadline has been extended to Nov. 15, 2013. All applications for Cyber Warrant Officer must be received by Navy Personnel Command by the new deadline. Basic eligibility requirements are outlined in NAVADMIN 176/13 for active duty and NAVADMIN 177/13 for Reservists.

Specific requirements and additional information about LDO/CWO programs can be found in OPNAVINST 1420.1B, Enlisted to Officer Commissioning Programs Application Administrative Manual, chapter 7.
