         What is a LDO / CWO
• A Limited Duty Officer (LDO) is an officer who was
  selected for commissioning based on his/her skill and
  expertise, and is not required to have a bachelor’s degree.
• The term "Limited Duty" refers not to an LDO's authority,
  but rather the LDO's career progression and restrictions.
  LDO’s, prior to WWII, could only advance as far as
  lieutenant. Later an LDO could be promoted to
  commander. In the 1990s the ceiling was raised to Captain.
• Unlike the Unrestricted Line Officers, LDOs cannot
  command a warship, aviation squadron, or auxiliary vessel.
  However, many LDOs command ashore activities

                                Preparing


• Start early (PO3 not too early!)
•   Make your seniors aware of your personal goals; seek a LDO/CWO mentor
•   Develop a strong career path and “resume”…good mix of duty stations and
    jobs is important.
•   Seek leadership positions: LPO, LCPO
•   Earn all possible professional and warfare qualifications
•   Complete formal education and correspondence courses
•   Get out of your comfort zone. Qualify on as many watch qualifications as you
    can. Do correspondence courses on ratings in other work centers you may be
    in charge of. Take such assignments as Detailer, Recruiter, Instructor
•   Get involved. Actively support your command. Take on significant key
    collateral duties – (Career Counselor, Drug/Alcohol Programs Advisor,
    Command Assessment Team)
                 Don’t get discouraged!
        (It may take 2 or 3 times before you get
                        selected)
• Keep building your “resume”
• Selection is determined on a numerical process
      • Points awarded for:
          •   Applicant’s package and CO’s endorsement
          •   Evaluations
          •   Duty Assignments and Demonstration of Technical Knowledge
          •   Leadership and Maturity
          •   Training and Education (both military and civilian)
          •   Awards and Qualifications
          •   Command and Community Involvement
   • There is a maximum number of points for each area. Your
     evaluations earn you the most points, so strive to be ranked as
     “Early Promote”
                                                                          16
            Performance Evaluations


• What’s important:
• Sustained superior performance
• Demonstrated leadership
• Technical Expertise (CWO applicant’s)
• Personal accomplishments (quals, education)
• Promotion Recommendation (EP w/peer ranking;
  LDO/CWO potential
• Complete formal education and correspondence courses
               Performance Evaluations


• Evaluations should have data and metrics
  (numbers):
  •   How many
  •   How fast
  •   How far
  •   How much
  •   The eval has to explain to the reader why you’re “the best
      Sailor/Chief on the waterfront!”
                     Don’t forget to...



• Review your record to ensure:
   • Your awards, completion of college and military schools are
     properly documented in your service record and evaluations
• Prepare for the officer interview board
   • Be prepared to answer varied questions about what assignments
     you can expect as an officer, goals, contributions, what tours you
     should pursue, promotion opportunity, and retirement laws
   • Review the officer Perspective Bulletins (same as Link bulletin),
     particularly the LDO/CWO “Mustang News” section and NKO.
     Also review the individual LDO/CWO detailer articles
• If you are a PO1, you must pass the CPO exam.

                         for future boards

• Work to get the top spots on fitness reports/evaluations. Break-outs are
  extremely important.

• Continue working on your education and professional qualifications.

• Get out of your comfort zone. Qualify as many watchstations as you can, do
  correspondence courses on ratings and work centers other than your own. If
  you are an instructor, get your Master Training Specialist (MTS).

• Go after billets in recruiting, instructor duty, recruit division command, etc.

• Board members focus on the strength of the evaluations, promotion rankings,
  command endorsement, interview appraisal sheets, leadership traits and the
  jobs you have held.

• Good mix of duty stations and jobs held is important. Warfare qualifications,
  watchstations qualifications, awards, sustained superior performance in out of
  rate assignments such as recruiting, instructor, etc., all earn major points.
                                                                                42
                                         Summary

• Hard and soft breakouts in evaluations/fitness reports are extremely important.
  Work to move to the “EP” block soon after reporting aboard.

• Board members focus on the strength of the evaluations, promotion rankings, command
  endorsement, interview appraisal sheets, leadership traits and the difficulty of billets held.

• Qualify for watchstations in your rating to the maximum level your rank will allow.

• Qualifying for watchstations outside your rate and ranking is a plus once you have max”d out
  in your parent rating qualifications.

• IA/GSA assignments, recruiting, recruit division command, instructor duty a plus++.

• If you are an instructor, get your Master Training Specialist (MTS).

• Continue to work on higher education.

• Good rule of thumb, prepare yourself to take over your bosses job. Documented performance
  in and out of your rating along with the expected qualifications convinces the board
  membership YOU HAVE PREPARED YOURSELF to SUCCEED as a LDO-ENS/LTJG,
  CWO-2/3 today.

                           Summary


- The competitive selection process that the LDO/CWO
  community employs is a significant tool in the Navy’s
  “Strategy for the People” and ensures we retain, select, and
  promote our strongest performers.
- Selection to LDO or CWO is a benchmark in one’s career
  and reflects the Navy’s value in sustained superior
  performance, leadership, and integrity.
- Board packages reflect that commands support the
  program by only sending the best and brightest for
  consideration.
