RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces establishment of the Professional Military
Knowledge Eligibility Exam (PMK-EE) for the Navy. As part of Sailor 2025 and
Rating Modernization efforts, the PMK-EE was created to provide greater
emphasis on Professional Military Knowledge (PMK) and to separate it from
examinations on rating knowledge. This is an initial step toward electronic
advancement exams, and eventually, individually tailored rating exams, unique
to the navy enlisted classifications held by a Sailor. PMK-EE will serve as
an additional eligibility requirement for advancement to paygrades E4/5/6/7.
PMK-EE will be delivered electronically, and will be available via the My
Navy Portal website beginning in October 2018.
2. Sailors must attain a passing score on PMK-EE prior to 1 September 2019
to participate in Advancement Cycle 244. PMK content will no longer be
included on the NWAE starting with the September 2019 E4/5/6 Exam.
3. PMK-EE Requirements and Administration:
a. Sailors are required to successfully pass PMK-EE only once per
b. PMK-EE must be successfully completed by the first day of the NWAE
c. Sailors will be able to access the PMK-EE via My Navy Portal through
the Learning Management System (LMS).
d. PMK-EE will consist of 100 questions representing five (5) topic
areas (Leadership and Character, Career Information, Professional Conduct,
Naval Heritage, and Seamanship). Each topic area may be taken independently
of the other sections and in any order. Sailors must achieve a passing score
of 80 percent or higher in each topic area to pass PMK-EE. Failure to
achieve an 80 percent score on a topic will require that topic to be retaken.
e. Once each topic area is completed, the LMS will provide the number of
questions successfully answered for that topic, as well as the associated
reference for incorrectly answered questions. Once all topic areas are
successfully completed, PMK-EE will be finalized in the LMS and an overall
exam score will be displayed.
f. The topics and bibliographies used to develop PMK-EE questions will
be available on the Advancement and Promotion webpage located on the My Navy
g. PMK-EE completion will be recorded in the LMS and the Navy Training
Management Planning System (NTMPS). NTMPS can be used to determine
individual Sailor eligibility for advancement.
