NAVAL SEA CADETS:
Sea Cadet rates follow the same path as of the United States Navy and United States Coast Guard enlisted rates from E-1 (Seaman Recruit) through E-7 (chief petty officer) (see United States Navy enlisted rates). An enlisted sailor’s rate is similar conceptually to a naval officer’s rank. Only officers carry the term “rank” in the Navy. All cadets have to take the Navy correspondence courses and pass Navy examinations to advance in rate. They must have a minimum time served in each rate before moving to the next higher rate. All new Sea Cadets enter the NSCC as an E-1 (Seaman Recruit or “SR”); detailed requirements for advancement are outlined below. Each course includes an assignment in which the Cadet provides his/her answers on the NSCTNG028 BMR Assignment Answer Sheet. One answer sheet is used for each assignment. Sea Cadets do not take online exams until they reach Petty Officer 3rd Class, the Cadet must then pass on online exam to demonstrate their retention of what they learned. Sea Cadets take Petty Officer exams (PO3, PO2, PO1 and CPO) on the NSCC Online Testing Systems (NOTS)
All Sea Cadets participate in PT (Physical Training). It is suggested that all Cadets utilize the NSCC/NLCC PHYSICAL READINESS MANUALto know what is expected and what goals they should strive to meet. Exceptions are made for those Cadets with medical needs.

Sea Cadets must complete their BMR’s (Basic Military Requirements)(all 15 assignments) to qualify to attend Recruit Training. In addition, to move forward in rate, Sea Cadet Recruits must attend Recruit Training (RT). RT is a 9 to 14 day away training. These training sessions are taught at the Navy’s Recruit Training Command, at other naval bases or stations and at regional recruit training sites using other military host resources. The curriculum of this training is approved by the U.S. Navy and standardized at all training sites. Cadets receive 106 hours of instruction, with a focus on the Navy’s core values of honor, courage and commitment. Both tone and tenor of instruction are modeled after the Navy’s recruit training. The nearest local RT is held in Belle Glade Florida. Upon completion of RT, Seaman Recruits are promoted to Seaman Apprentice.

CPO candidates must be at least 16 years old. The CPO rate requires a minimum of 33 months TIS (Time in Service) and 6 months TIG (Time in Grade). The CPO position is an honor and is granted only to the most deserving of Cadets. CPO candidates must be a beacon of the values and morals of the USNSCC. They are the leader of the unit and the example to follow. An excerpt of the Chief Petty Officer Creed reads “the rank of E7 carries with it unique responsibilities and privileges you are now bound to observe and expected to fulfill. Your entire way of life is now changed. More will be expected of you; more will be demanded of you. Not because you are a E7 but because you are now a Chief Petty Officer. You have not merely been promoted one grade, you have joined an exclusive fellowship and, as in all fellowships, you have a special responsibility to your comrades, even as they have a special responsibility to you.” “ASK THE CHIEF” is a household phrase, both in and out of the Navy.
