The Navy is implementing a career path for a set of enlisted ratings Engineman, Machinist Mate, Gas Turbine System Technician, and Fire-Controlman-Aegis. This new career path is desired to give sailors more technical experience, especially on shore tours. The purpose of the career path is to prepare sailors for senior enlisted positions at sea. Our study shows that implementing these career paths is feasible within the current billet structure and retention behavior. We also show that the majority of current sailors have had all their tours aligned with the new career path. The main area for improvement in sailor proficiency is having all sailors tours on the same platform.
