Navy Petty Officer First Class Buckle: FCPO 1st Class
Petty Officer First Class is the third of the Navy’s Petty Officer grades and serves as a non-commissioned officer. A Petty Officer First Class serves both as a leader and as a technical expert, and all Petty Officers have a specified rating, or job. The exact title with which a petty officer is addressed depends on their specialty; a Petty Officer First Class serving as an Electronics Technician, for example, would have the full title of Electronics Technician First Class.
A Petty Officer First Class is often chosen to serve as the Leading Petty Officer (LPO) of a division, and the leadership experience demonstrated through this position is often used to choose sailors for promotion to Chief Petty Officer.
Like advancement to Petty Officer Third Class or Petty Officer Second Class, to receive a promotion to Petty Officer First Class sailors must complete a specialty test for their particular rating and apply for advancement every six months, in March and September of every year. Advancements to PO1 also require three years of service as a PO2 and a recommendation from a commanding officer. Only a certain number of Petty Officer First Class billets are available to be filled every year, and competition for promotion is extremely fierce among qualified applicants.
