SUBJ/ESTABLISHMENT OF YEOMAN (SUBMARINE), LOGISTICS SPECIALIST (SUBMARINE),
CULINARY SPECIALIST (SUBMARINE) AND FIRE CONTROLMAN (AEGIS) SERVICE RATINGS//
AMPN/REF A IS NAVPERS 18068F, MANUAL OF NAVY ENLSITED MANPOWER AND
PERSONNEL CLASSIFICATION AND OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS, VOLUME I, NAVY
ENLISTED CLASSIFICATION (NECS).//
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN establishes the Yeoman (Submarine) (YNS), Logistics
Specialist (Submarine) (LSS), Culinary Specialist (Submarine) (CSS) and Fire
Controlman (Aegis) (FCA) service ratings. These establishments are primarily
administrative in nature and are expected to minimally impact the fleet. In
line with reference (a), YNS, LSS and CSS service ratings are warranted
because specialized skills, as well as specific areas of qualifications, have
been identified for personnel onboard submarines separate from their
respective general ratings. The FCA service rating is warranted because
specialized skills, as well as specific areas of qualifications, have been
identified for personnel that serve as FCA separate from the general Fire
Controlman rating. These establishments will permit optimum management and
utilization of personnel, and economy of training. Additional value will be
gained for manpower, personnel, training and education because these new
service ratings establish new rating control numbers that will augment
current manpower programs, ultimately decreasing inventory inaccuracies.
These new service ratings will only apply to active- duty (excluding Full-
Time Support) Sailors and billets.
2. The establishment of the service ratings will be effective on the
a. 2 September 2017 for E6
b. 17 October 2017 for E7-E9
c. 28 November 2017 for E1-E5
3. The primary personnel and billets to receive the new service rating will
be as follows:

first E4/5/6 exams will be March 2018 with the first E7 exam in January 2018.
