This study conducted a critical review of professional development requirements in the Surface Warfare Community to maximize the use of increasingly scarce permanent change of station (PCS) funds. Seven network representations of career pathways were constructed to encapsulate the career paths Surface Warfare Officers (SWOs) actually pursue. Four focal points of professional development were determined to provide the basis for these pathways. These four are the major command tour, the commander comamnd tour, the executive officer tour and the department head tour. Naval Officer Billet File data and information from the Naval Military Personnel Command"s Officer Manning Plan model were used to determine the geographic locations and respective numbers of SWO billets. Officer Longitudinal Master File data were used to determine historical tour lengths of Surface Warfare Officers. Analyses were conducted for key developmental tours and for the type of tour assignment (sea or shore, and geographic location). The interrelationships between tour length, billet opportunity and selectivity are discussed. The above considered, two additional career pathways were developed which improve the efficiency of the SWO career path and potentially save PCS funds. Keywords include: Career Planning, Career Development, Permanent Change of Station Costs, and Theses.

I was a SWO. I lat transferred out only because I was prior enlisted and the time it would take to reach command would put me past statutory so it wasn't worth it to me. Being a SWO was a good career. I like it and it was a good job. Pilots constantly repeat the same nonsense "hurrrr durrr, being a SWO would suck. Pilot are best". The guiding principles of SWOS professional development are to acquire perspective for sea duty assignments that culminate in Command at Sea. The hallmark of the Surface Warfare community is the regularity with which we receive professional military education at major milestones of a Surface Warfare Officer’s career. The nature and scope of a Navy Surface Warfare Officer’s responsibilities are similar to those of the civilian careers listed above. All will have experience managing a Division (small to large teams of operators and technicians), solving complex issues during high speed operations, planning and executing training programs, and monitoring. On the event’s first day, flag officers and senior government officials spoke with 60 NSWCDD experts about surface, air, and undersea warfare. “We gained incredible insights from over 20 senior leaders on a variety of surface warfare topics, challenges, and issues,” said Mills.
