The Navy enlisted warfare qualifications give Sailors an opportunity to become knowledgeable in the platforms that they serve and also give them the big picture of why they do the specific jobs they have been assign to do in the Navy. Of course it also designates the member as warfare qualified for their specific platform. Qualified members can wear the applicable insignias and use the designator in their title.
Provided on this page are links that will hopefully assist you in getting qualified for your particular platform or community. Researching and studying warfare material for your particular community can take time. Sometimes group sessions can really help especially when there are various rates that can add to the particular qualification studies. The reward though is valuable not only in the qualification but the knowledge you attain in gaining that designation.
Each qualification program has a warfare sponsor that delineates prerequisites, procedures for qualification, re-qualification, disqualification, and failure to qualify within a program.

When starting your qualifications, you will need to get a PQS for your specialty. To download your PQS, go to My Navy Portal (MNP) under “Professional Resources.” That is what qualified personnel will sign to help you become qualified! You will need your Common Access Card (CAC) card to gain access. If you have any questions about your PQS, talk to your supervisor. You can also call the PQS Development Group at 1-757-492-9002.
