LDO’s, prior to WWII, could only advance as far as lieutenant. Later an LDO could be promoted to commander. In the 1990s the ceiling was raised to Captain.<br />Unlike the Unrestricted Line Officers, LDOs cannot command a warship, aviation squadron, or auxiliary vessel. However, many LDOs command ashore activities<br />4<br />

Break-outs are extremely important.<br />Continue working on your education and professional qualifications.<br />Get out of your comfort zone. Qualify as many watchstations as you can, do correspondence courses on ratings and work centers other than your own. If you are an instructor, get your Master Training Specialist (MTS).<br />Go after billets in recruiting, instructor duty, recruit division command, etc.<br />Board members focus on the strength of the evaluations, promotion rankings, command endorsement, interview appraisal sheets, leadership traits and the jobs you have held.<br />Good mix of duty stations and jobs held is important. Warfare qualifications, watchstations qualifications, awards, sustained superior performance in out of rate assignments such as recruiting, instructor, etc., all earn major points.<br />
  100. 100. 43<br />Summary<br /><ul><li>Hard and soft breakouts in evaluations/fitness reports are extremely important.</li></ul> Work to move to the “EP” block soon after reporting aboard. <br /><ul><li>Board members focus on the strength of the evaluations, promotion rankings, command endorsement, interview appraisal sheets, leadership traits and the difficulty of billets held.
  101. 101. Qualify for watchstations in your rating to the maximum level your rank will allow.
  102. 102. Qualifying for watchstations outside your rate and ranking is a plus once you have max”d out in your parent rating qualifications.
  103. 103. IA/GSA assignments, recruiting, recruit division command, instructor duty a plus++.
  104. 104. If you are an instructor, get your Master Training Specialist (MTS).
  105. 105. Continue to work on higher education.
  106. 106. Good rule of thumb, prepare yourself to take over your bosses job. Documented performance in and out of your rating along with the expected qualifications convinces the board membership YOU HAVE PREPARED YOURSELF to SUCCEED as a LDO-ENS/LTJG, CWO-2/3 today.</li></li></ul><li>44<br />Summary<br /><ul><li>The competitive selection process that the LDO/CWO community employs is a significant tool in the Navy’s “Strategy for the People” and ensures we retain, select, and promote our strongest performers.
  107. 107. Selection to LDO or CWO is a benchmark in one’s career and reflects the Navy’s value in sustained superior performance, leadership, and integrity.
  108. 108.
