Unlike seaman and lower ranks, a sailor’s advancement to petty officer third class is not automatic given time in service, but is also contingent on performance evaluations by their superiors and rate examinations (tests of specialty knowledge), except for certain technical ratings which carry automatic advancement to PO3 after successful completion of that rating’s “A” school and fulfillment of time in rate requirements. The advancement cycle is currently every 6 months. Only a certain number of billets (job openings for a given rank) open up biannually and all seamen compete for promotion. The top scorers are chosen for advancement, but only in sufficient numbers to fill the billets available.
Petty officers serve a dual role as both technical experts and as leaders. Unlike the sailors who rank below them, there is no such thing as an undesignated petty officer. Every petty officer has both a rank and rating (job, similar to a MOS or AFSC in other branches). The rank and rating combined are known collectively as a sailor’s rate. A petty officer’s full title is a combination of the two.
