Eligible Military Chiefs Can Become Cyber-Chief Warrant Officers

The U.S. Navy is making a strong effort to build a modern cyber force, with opportunities for two Navy personnel to join the cyber Chief Warrant Officer program each year. The Cyber Warrant Officer community aims to commission Navy chiefs who have advanced computer network operations skills to plan, analyze, and run the Navy's cyber military programs.


The position of Cyber Warrant Officer broadens the scope of the U.S. Navy, opening even more job opportunities for military servicemembers. At the beginning of each fiscal year, Cyber Officers are selected in conjunction with the Annual Chief Warrant Officer and Limited Duty Officer selection board. The Navy assigns two Cyber Officer positions per year to meet the annual fiscal appointment.


There are specific service time requirements, job qualifications, and civilian history requirements for military service members applying for a cyber warrant officer position. To qualify for a position as a Cyber Warrant Officer, servicemembers must be Chief Petty Officers in the U.S. Navy, Naval Reserve, or full-time support community members while applying for the CWO position. In accordance with Navy Enlisted Classification, service members must also be certified as apprentice Interactive Network Collection Operators in order to qualify for CWO positions. Servicemembers must have completed at least 12 years of active service in the navy before the year of application, but no more than 24 years of service. After 24 years of naval service, a servicemember is no longer eligible to become a CWO.


To be eligible to become a CWO, service members must also be U.S citizens with a high school diploma, GED, or military-accepted equivalent education. Service members must also have a clean criminal record for two years prior to Oct. 1st of your application year - this means no prior convictions by court-martial, civil or criminal court, other than minor violations.

The military applicant must also be physically qualified for a Chief Warrant Officer appointment, and receive a recommendation from their commanding officer.

Ever considered becoming a part of the Cyber-military? You have two chances per year to qualify as a CWO. Ask your commanding officer for more details.
