RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the update to reference (a) and Sailors in
the MMA (Auxiliary) and MMW (Submarine Weapons) ratings accessed into the
United States Navy Reserve. In support of Reserve initiatives to retain
talent and increase Reserve Component (RC) to Active Component (AC)
permeability, MMA and MMW rated Sailors are no longer required to convert to
the Machinist Mate (MM) rating when transitioning into the RC. This change
will allow these Sailors to maintain their critical skillsets and remain
better aligned with the career paths of their AC counterparts, enhancing
their ability to move between the Active and Reserve components.
Accordingly, MMA and MMW candidates must take the appropriate exam that
matches their specific rate.
2. Educational Services Officers (ESO) should ensure that MMA exams are
ordered for MMA candidates and MMW exams are ordered for MMW candidates.
ESOs should contact Navy Education and Training Professional Development
Center (NETPDC) to order exams for those Sailors whose initial exams were not
ordered in the correct rate.
Exams shall be ordered via message or in message format via e-mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org following the guidelines in chapter 4 of
reference (b). Ensure a point of contact is included in the message.
Deadline to order additional selected reserve exams is 4 September 2018.
3. Any additional information regarding this cycle will be posted on the
Navy Enlisted Advancement System (NEAS) website.
4. Points of contact:
a. Navy Personnel Command Customer Service Center: 866-U-ASK- NPC, or
via e-mail at email@example.com.
b. SCI exam questions and orders: (850) 473-5867/DSN 753, or via e-mail
c. Exam orders, records, and discrepancies: (850) 473-6148/DSN 753, or

(b), superseded or canceled, whichever occurs first.
