Recommended Posts

What? None of the regulars have answered this yet? Easy one.

You can click on the above direct link to the PDF or you can google "DA Pam 600-3" if you don't trust me...then click on the same link via google.

 

Start reading or perusing at paragraph 10-5d, Aviation Branch Active Army warrant officer

 

It is relatively short. For the graphic that probably answers it easiest, go down 2 pages to "Figure 10-9" and enjoy the visual.

 

You are looking the figure titled "152-155 AWO Career Path".

 

5 year mark is the "primary" or first look for most ranks. Above zone is after.

FYI, NGR 600-101 governs ARNG warrant officer promotions. There is a policy memo dated 30 May 2012 that modifies TIG gates published in NGR 600-101.

 

WO1 to CW2 2 years

CW2 to CW3 5 years See note below

CW3 to CW4 6 years See note below

CW4 to CW5 5 years

 

Note: When considered for promotion to CW3 or CW4, Warrant officers in grade

position coded higher than his/her current grade may be considered for promotion one (1)

year earlier than prescribed above.

I got that for 3, and hopefully will get it again for 4. Should make 4 prior to 35.

All walking Warrants get looked at the first time year 4 then again year 5 right?

See the DA Pam I quoted above. Same chapter for Aviation Techs, if another branch, look it up in the contents and then that chapter.

This was very helpful! I appreciate the detailed response.

I have 6 years TIS (enlisted) and was trying to do some math on promotion gates/college.

Follow on question/discussion.

 

It seems to me that the street-to-seat guys have it pretty rough. Under this promotion timeline, they would have to make CW5 to even be eligible for a 20-year retirement.

Check math again, remember, your "safe" at 18 years.
