SUBJ/IMPLEMENTATION OF NAVY ENLISTED CLASSIFICATION CODE N33Z IDENTIFYING
NUCLEAR ENGINEERING WATCH SUPERVISOR AND PROPULSION PLANT WATCH SUPERVISOR
NARR/REF A IS OPNAVINST 1220.1E, CHANGING OR REMOVING NAVY ENLISTED
CLASSIFICATION CODES FOR NUCLEAR PROPULSION PLANT PERSONNEL.//
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the implementation of the N33Z Navy enlisted
classification (NEC) code to document qualification as an engineering watch
supervisor (EWS) and propulsion plant watch supervisor (PPWS).
2. N33Z is a secondary NEC that is awarded after a Sailor qualifies EWS or
PPWS and will be used in conjunction with the Sailors primary NEC.
3. For Sailors to be assigned the N33Z NEC, the following is
a. Submit a NAVPERS 1221/6 (NEC Change Request) signed by the commanding
officer (CO), or reactor officer (RO) on CVNs, requesting assignment of N33Z
NEC and the associated effective date in YYMM format. By direction
signatures are not authorized.
b. The *effective date* is defined as the year and month of the Sailors
initial qualification of EWS or PPWS. The effective date shall be annotated
in block 12 of the NAVPERS 1221/6.
c. COs, or ROs on CVNs, must verify the effective date of qualification
prior to submitting the NAVPERS 1221/6.
d. For commands with multiple Sailors who are qualified EWS or PPWS, a
single NAVPERS 1221/6 shall be submitted with an attached letter signed by
the CO, or RO on CVNs. This letter shall identify the applicable Sailors
names (last name, first name, middle initial), rates/ranks, social security
number, and the qualification effective dates. *REF ATTACHED* must be
entered in blocks 3, 4 and
5 of the NAVPERS 1221/6.
e. No other documentation is required to be submitted to Nuclear
Enlisted Community Manager (OPNAV N133D).
4. For all future Sailors who qualify EWS or PPWS, a NAVPERS 1221/6 shall be
submitted to request assignment of the N33Z NEC. COs, or ROs on CVNs, shall
verify the effective date is the qualification date and annotate the
effective date in block 12 of the NAVPERS 1221/6.
5. Submit all N33Z NEC requests to OPNAV N133D via e-mail to
6. The N33Z NEC will be managed during re-qualifications as
a. Sailors shall nominally requalify within 6 months of reporting
onboard a submarine or CVN.
b. ROs on CVNs shall determine the appropriate requalification time
periods for personnel to qualify PPWS for those who previously qualified EWS
on a submarine or a Nuclear Power Training Unit.
c. The removal of N33Z should be recommended by a CO when the Sailor
fails to requalify in the allotted time described in paragraphs 6(a) or 6(b)
and after failing to complete any upgrade programs. In these cases, the CO
must also address the disposition of the primary NEC (NEC N1XO/N2XO or
N1XS/N2XS) of the Service Member. The removal of the N33Z NEC does not
require removal of the supervisor NEC of the Service Member for E-6 and below
personnel but will result in removal of all nuclear NECs for E-7 and above.
COs are required to submit a NAVPERS 1221/6 requesting removal of the N33Z.
7. The removal of NEC N33Z should be recommended when the CO considers the
Sailor no longer suitable to carry out the duties and responsibilities
associated with the N33Z NEC. In these cases, the CO must also address the
disposition of the primary NEC (NEC N1XO/N2XO or N1XS/N2XS) of Service
Members. The removal of the N33Z NEC does not require removal of the
supervisor NEC of Service Members for E-6 and below personnel but will result
in removal of all nuclear NECs for E-7 and above. COs are required to submit
a NAVPERS 1221/6 requesting removal of the N33Z.
8. Points of contact: for all questions and concerns, commands and Sailors
should contact OPNAV N133D at (703)604-5491/DSN 664, (703)604-5492/DSN 664,
or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
9. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until reference (a) is revised.
