Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist (ESWS) Study Guide


ESWS Study Guide

This study guide has the Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist (ESWS) links to assist you in you in the enlisted warfare specialist program. If you know of any other links please let me know.

After getting approved for the your program you should be given the Warfare Specialist PQS manuals. There are many resources to study for the Enlisted Warfare Specialist program online but the best resource will be your fellow sailors.

You'll be able to download and print most ESWS topics especially items like ships and systems. For me the best parts are the pictures since its easier for me to associate what I've memorized with a picture since many systems are unfamiliar to me.

Don't forget to use forum if you have any questions or comments! Remember, the gouge is good but if you can get your ESWS material from different sources you will set a good impression at the ESWS board. Supplementing your knowledge on U.S. Navy ships will also enhance yourself in other areas beyond ESWS!

OPNAV Instruction 1414.9A Governs the warfare qualification program overall and MILPERSMAN 1220-050 provides guidance on the ESWS program specifically. Naval Surface Forces Atlantic and Pacific are the warfare sponsors for this program (links are provided below.)
