Navy Enlisted Special Programs - Sea, Shore and Augmentation


Seeking Other Military Duties

There may be a special program for you - no really. Sometimes enlisted Sailors want a change of pace away from their rate and volunteer for special duties or programs. In some situations enlisted personnel can earn an NEC and others, end up in harms way. While some programs are not for everyone, enlisted have a great opportunity to excel and shine in a different arena.

One thing that these programs do have in common is that volunteers are need to fill these vital billets. Some also have qualification standards or specific criteria so not all may qualify. Regardless, you should take a look at these programs if you are looking for a change of pace and prepare to give it your all. You want to ensure that whatever billet you fill, especially if it is a unique one, that your evaluations reflect your time in that billet as exemplary and an example for other to emulate.


  • MILPERSMAN 1306-900 - Assignment Of Enlisted Personnel To Special Programs
  • NAVPERS 1306/7 - Enlisted Personnel Action Request
  • NAVPERS 1306/92 - Special Program Screening Form
  • DoD Safe - Secure Access File Exchange is a service to make it easy for you to exchange unclassified files

Applying to an Enlisted Program

Most enlisted special programs will have a MILPERSMAN detailing that program. If not, it will have program information on MyNavy HR. The first point of contact should be your detailer. NAVPERS 1306/7 will have to be submitted to request a program. You will then be screened which requires that you submit NAVPERS 1306/92.
