MANUAL OF NAVY OFFICER MANPOWER AND PERSONNEL CLASSIFICATIONS VOLUME I Major Code Structures
|Publication Date:||1 January 2010|
a. The Navy Officer Occupational Classification System (NOOCS) is the method the Navy uses to identify skills, education, training, experience and capabilities related to both officer personnel and manpower requirements. This system consists of code structures that form the basis for officer manpower management and officer personnel procurement, training, promotion, distribution, career development and mobilization.
b. The Manual of Navy Officer Manpower and Personnel Classifications, NAVPERS 15839I, published in two volumes, each issued separately, explains NOOCS codes and other code structures and established abbreviations used to identify the qualitative needs for officer manpower and for reporting and recording officer qualifications and other personnel data.
c. Volume I of this manual contains the code structure for each of the four subsystems of NOOCS - Designator/Grade, Subspecialty (SSP), Navy Officer Billet Classifications (NOBC), and Additional Qualification Designation (AQD).
d. Volume II of this manual contains, in addition to a description of the Officer Data Card (ODC), NAVPERS 1301/51, a listing of non-occupational manpower and personnel codes which provides foreign language, ship and station, service school, education, and other identifiers.
e. NOOCS is further complemented by certain manpower-unique codes and officer special qualifications found in Manual of Navy Total Force Manpower Policies and Procedures, OPNAVINST 1000.16 series, and Naval Military Personnel Manual, NAVPERS 15560, respectively.
