Pagination or Media Count:
This publication presents guidance to the career oriented limited duty officer and chief warrant officer so that they may plan for and intelligently help formulate their careers. We have provided each limited duty officer and chief warrant officer designator with clear standards for each phase of a career. Complementing the individual designator structures are broad career characteristics that are common to all limited duty officers and chief warrant officers. There are several career points at which a limited duty officer or chief warrant officer must make conscious decisions regarding their career. This will require an intelligent blending of past experience, loyalty to the profession, and advice from informed sources within the Navy. This publication should be one of those sources. While no one source of information on career planning is all inclusive in scope, this publication provides limited duty officers and chief warrant officers with sufficient information to ask specific and appropriate questions when dealing with their assignment officer. Active participation will enable them to make significant career decisions resulting in a successful and professional career as a limited duty officer or chief warrant officer. It is also beneficial to take the few minutes required to review the development structure offered to other limited duty officer and chief warrant officer communities. In this way, you can better understand their relative needs, potential and operations. This will become very important when required to work with or for an officer of a different limited duty officer or chief warrant officer designator or, more importantly, to lead a group of diversified limited duty officer or chief warrant officer specialists.
