I posted this some time back. Here is the info again.

This is only for Non-Prior service enlistees! This means you have never been in the military. You will go to bootcamp and follow on A-school (military occupational specialty), then you will go home and do the one weekend a month deal with your local Navy-Marine Corps reserve center etc.. for this the enlistment currently has a $20K lump sum enlistment bonus


The program is called NPSB (non-prior service basic). Bootcamp is 9 weeks. Your follow on A-school training can range from 7 weeks to possibly 17 weeks depending on which rating you choose.

The types of jobs currently available to the best of my knowledge:

MA - Master-at-Arms (Navy military police)
HM - Hospital Corpsman (Navy medical/dental field)
IS - Intelligence Specialist
CB's - Construction Battalions (from electricians to drywall to heavy equipment)

and I saw only once MM - Machinest mate ..however not 100% sure

IS is the shit.....its a really cool rating. Especially for the reserves, they write their own orders.

Hmm, Navy.

That involves, like, ships, water, oceans, water everywhere and no land, swimming, seasickness, and saltwater. Right?

NO, No, that is absolutely wrong. These jobs are available to anyone who is mentally, morally and physically qualified.

This program was not available until last year.

I scored within the top 99% of the asvab and was told that without civy experience that I was SOL.

I asked him how in the hell you are supposed to get "intel" experience. His answer "I've been asking that question myself". This was 2 months ago.

Now for regular reserves, we take prior enlisted or civilians with life experience.

True example: U.S. Customs type joined up for an edge on promotion

LEO's can come into the Navy reserve never having served in the military at all so long as they can complete a modified 17 day bootcamp within 1 year IIRC.

Same thing with people in the construction field or LVN's/ RN's with verifiable experience.

Okay he is talking about joining the reserves without going to regular bootcamp as a recruit for 9 weeks in Great Lakes, IL. You need civilian or other service experience for that. The intel job requires unique qualifications if you are trying to bypass the regular recruit experience.

The reason being...regular reserve enlistment and not that program I posted above doesn't count toward his active duty enlistment goal. Oh shit. I can't believe I'm posting this. Recruiters would rather you go active duty or if not into the program I posted above or the one below which is NCSA.

There is another program called NCSA (national call to service) which is 9 weeks of bootcamp and a 15 month active duty enlistment followed thereafter with reserve duty.

Ask him for this job: requires 90-99 asvab and a TS clearance...haaaaaaaaa....oh the memories..me and my dustpan...cleaning stations..brings out the man in you....re-enlist motha fucka..YEAHHHa OOORAAHHHH!!!!

If you're asking about corpsmen..well then the answer is yes. I've been told that the corpsman job field is closed to females till further notice. Don't go quoting me either.

No, a full fledged MD. No prior service just a burning desire to do his part.

You need to speak with an officer recruiter. It doesn't hurt to ask. Call the local recruiting command headquaters and speak directly with a full-time officer recruiter.

Recruiter-canvassers like myself are in the field finding young men and women to enlist with an officer referral here and there. I assist in weeding out those that are unqalified for officer positions. With only a handful of officer recruiters in my area field recruiters are relied on in this manner.

I can get you the direct number for your area.

It's not just LEO's. It's construction types too etc... You will need to complete a modified 17 day bootcamp within 1 year. Some of the reservist has reported that this modified bootcamp can be going away.

I met a lady who is 39 years old, son was a high school senior last year and she joined the Navy reserve. She attended the modified bootcamp and gave us a report on it. She said it wasn't long enough and some people aren't motivated because they are older.


If you are prior service you just process into the reserves. For example you are 43 and had served 4 years of active duty, well now you have a computed age of 39 years old.

I know...but I'm letting all of our fellow posters know that the noted ratings are especially needed in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere that our trigger pullers are serving. Yes, they will also served around the world ashore and at sea (except for the SeaBees) but the reason for the extraordinary bonuses is because of the requirements in theater.

Ha, ha... Some of my Navy Reserve friends tried to get me in on the prior-service idea. 1 weekend a month? Anybody who believes that is a fool. Both friends just did 18 months in the sand box and are due for more.

Don't kid yourself on the reserve requirements, it is no picnic.
