This time does not have to iwo consecutive, but is required for proper preparation. 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. Or even worse, have the reference paraphrased by another Candidate who may or not be competent and absorbing that as gospel. Iddwo sooner I can get my quals done the better.

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 on your chest. Collateral activities, watch standing, and operations should be kept to an absolute minimum or avoided altogether. PQS for Noobs question: 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. We owe it ifwo ourselves to address this.

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

There is also a bigger problem here: Sure there is a fair-share of crap that could probably be done away with. I can’t think of another community that places so much time and effort into spoon-feeding their Candidates. We just had a good number of IW Reservists come through and qualify.


Maybe I’m just being a jerk – but we’re earning a warfare qualification here. 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 on your chest; or is it to lay the foundation for a career pss learning and simultaneously lend some visible credibility to an officer that they know what they’re doing or pqx least know where to find the answer when it comes to Information Dominance Warfare when they are given an operational assignment in the Fleet?

We need to be very careful with how we approach this otherwise we are diluting the meaning behind the pin that took pqqs long to have come into existence.

Return to Naval Reserve IW. I am only 1 of 2 IW Officers in my reserve unit and the other one completed his quals before the last change so it is completely different now. I attended one of these Boot Camps, and the experience was a very valuable one Just like in Flight School – live 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.

Are any of the signature blocks completed at IWBC? This is not something to do because it’ll look good in your Shadowbox. 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.

Also when should one start working on their PQS? There were three months’ worth of weekly 1. It is easy to say, “If they can’t cut it, we don’t want them” Worked well that they came in a group to use trainers time wisely as well as have study partners.

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.

BT Apologize for the rant and negativity, but we need to be honest with ourselves. I would view any Boot Camp with an eye of scrutiny. Yes, maybe some people are trying to do the minimal amount idao work to get through them, but can’t the same be said for some people with regard to ANY process? In any case, you will have plenty of resources among the staff there to get the signatures you need. 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.


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 pws in the community for years only to have them leave in part because of these difficulties? I have discussed this with idao IDC RC leadership and the conclusion was that we are not actually tracking this, but that based on anecdotal information, it is an issue.

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?

This is not meant to replace or supplant the community in our case, Idwwo qualification process.

It should not be done faster and funnier. 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 orders. Not everyone passed these boards. This is something to be taken seriously and something to be earned. It has been a few years since I attended, but I do recall receiving a sheet with signatures for some sections.
