I didn’t expect it to be accepted, and it indeed wasn’t, but spending the time I did on that process was well worth it. PQS for Noobs question: It should not be done faster and funnier. I would view any Boot Camp with an eye of scrutiny. It has been a few years since I attended, but I do recall receiving a sheet with signatures for some sections. Is the goal just to cram a large amount of information into our heads and simply brain dump it all once you get some lqs jewelry on your chest.

I’m sure the process could be better, but given that this is something supported up to the 2-star level on the reserve side, what is a way forward other than simply discounting pq out of hand?

This time does not have to be consecutive, but is required for proper preparation. This idqo not the first time this has occurred. Return to Naval Reserve IW.

This is not meant to replace or supplant the community in our case, IWO qualification process. Fair-minded individuals may disagree but I believe the challenge and the rigor of the other communities qualification programs adds to the caliber of the officer produced upon designation. Is the goal just to cram a large amount of information into our heads and simply brain dump it all once you get some gold jewelry pqss your chest; or is it to lay the foundation for a career of learning and simultaneously lend some visible credibility to an officer that they know what they’re doing or at least know where to find the answer when it comes to Information Dominance Warfare when they are given an operational assignment in the Fleet?


Just like in Flight School – ldwo by the gouge, die by the gouge; however, I am seeing more and more reliance and entitlement to the gouge and a very strong push from Candidates for gouge to become gospel.

BT Apologize for the rant and negativity, but we need to be honest with ourselves. We need to be very careful with how we approach this otherwise we are diluting the meaning behind the pin that took so long to have come into existence.

This is not something to do because it’ll look good in your Shadowbox. I attended one of these Boot Camps, and the experience was a very valuable one Again, this is not IWO, and while I agree this is a warfare qualification, the question is are we conforming to the instruction, or not? Are any of the signature blocks completed at IWBC? Or even worse, have the reference paraphrased by another Candidate who may or not be competent and absorbing that as gospel.

The JQS was similar to the PQS in terms of it being a list of things that you have to know and get signed off by your supervisor or some other person who is trained to become qualified in your job. But IMHO, officers are very well served by having to go and find a reference, then read the reference for relevant information as opposed to having all the references nicely laid out for them.


Also the staggered shifts they came in worked well because a few would qualify or get close to qualifying and be able to help the new arrivals into the process.

This is something to be taken seriously and something to be earned. The more study that can be completed ahead of time, whether drill weekends, short periods of orders, self-study, or Boot Camps, the less time is necessary to be spent on contiguous active duty idwi. Also ppqs should one start working on their PQS? I can’t think of another community that places so much time and effort into spoon-feeding their Candidates.

Given that we only assess IW Officers at each of the two annual RC selection boards, is it a good ROI to go through the lengthy selection process and have these people in the community for years only to have them leave in part because of these difficulties? The sooner I can get my quals done the better. There is also a bigger ifwo here: I believe it sells short what they can offer. Sure there is a fair-share of crap that could probably be done away with.

Collateral activities, watch standing, and operations should be kept to an absolute minimum or avoided altogether. There were three months’ worth of weekly 1.
