SPECIAL ADVANCEMENT REQUIREMENTS Many times nondesignated strikers complete the required courses for a rating without confirming if the rating they desire to strike for is open or closed.  Rating Entry  for  General  Apprentices  (REGA),  Career Reenlistment  Objectives  (CREO),   and  a  periodic NAVADMIN  message,  govern  the  different  rating entries.    ESOs  should  encourage  nondesignated strikers to strike for OPEN ratings since these ratings provide the best opportunities for advancement.  ESOs must  be  aware  that  manpower  requirements  for junior-level  rating  entries  fluctuate  with  the  overall needs of the Navy. The CNO periodic NAVADMIN messages use two major categories of rating control (open and closed) to identify  Navy  manpower  needs.    The  rating-entry categories  from  the  apprenticeship  level  to  petty officer third class (PO3) may be either open or closed. An OPEN rating is open to nondesignated personnel. A  CLOSED  rating  means  no  E-4  rating  entry opportunities or the rating is overmanned at the E-4 level. There are other categories such as nondesignated strikers  requiring  Navy  Personnel  Command (COMNAVPERSCOM) approval for rate entry or that the  rating  is  being  disestablished  or  merged  with another rating.

The ESO should be aware of the rules that apply to personnel desiring to enter any rating.    He  or  she  may  serve  as  a  member  of  the command  striker  selection  board.    The  ESO  should know what special advancement requirements exist for certain  ratings.    Those  special  requirements  may include  completion  of  service  schools,  U.S. citizenship, and a specific security clearance. Service School Requirements Some ratings require personnel to complete an “A” school  before  they  can  take  the  examination  for paygrade  E-4.    Periodic   Rating  Entry  for  General Apprentices  (REGA)  and  Career  Reenlistment Objectives  (CREO),  and  the  NAVADMIN  message contain a list of those ratings.  Some ratings require personnel  to  complete  more  advanced  schools  and courses before advancing beyond a certain paygrade. 5-3
