Talk:Petty officer third class
|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Petty officer third class article.|
- Does anyone know exactly how many months/years are required at Seaman before they're eligible to take PO3 exam? My memory is faulty, but I think it was 2 years. - Wguynes 20:09, Mar 26, 2004 (UTC)
Here are the Time In Rate (TIR) Requirements for U.S. Navy Enlisted Advancements (given in months):
SR to SA = 9 (w/No exam); SA to SN = 9 (w/No exam); SN to PO3 = 6; PO3 to PO2 = 12; PO2 to PO1 = 36*; PO1 to CPO = 36*; CPO to SCPO = 36 (w/No exam); SCPO to MCPO = 36 (w/No exam). *May be waived up to 1 year for Early Promotes (EP's) for advancement to PO1 or CPO only. Source = U.S. Navy Advancement Center
Based upon educational background, work background or incentives for advanced training, certain recruits may enter the Navy as SA or SN.
- I used the insignia from the insignia table page. They're rather small and lacking in detail for use here, but better than nothing. If anyone finds higher quality, larger, and consistent-looking insignia for all the navy enlisted, please feel free to replace these. I think leaving the table page as the small ones is best, however, due to server load. - Wguynes 02:47, Mar 27, 2004 (UTC)
Why is there an entire section for the Royal Navy when the title doesn't exist in it? Izuko 02:24, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
HYT of E-4 is 8 years. This being the case you cannot earn 12 years of good conduct for Petty Officer Third class. So no gold stripes for E-4. Please remove as this is messing up Joint folks-not Navy guys/gals. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 14:48, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Commonwealth LS/LH parrady with USN
The governing NATO reference is STANAG 2116 which places LS/LH at OR-4 along with PO3.
The last section of this page is great information showing equivalency among allied navies, but it's wrong. If there is a better reference out there present it or site it in the article or I plan to change the section to be in accordance with the NATO reference a week from today. — Preceding unsigned comment added by N8Lakes (talk • contribs) 20:07, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
