New Military Education points for promotions effective 1 Jan 2012

According to MILPER MSG 11-306, Soldiers will see an adjustment in promotion point distribution for military education on their Promotion Point Worksheet (PPW) on 5 December 2011. The change will become effective for Soldiers being promoted on 1 January 2012 and later.

Military education will be divided into three categories namely Professional Military Education (NCOES), Resident Military Training, and Computer Based Training. In addition, each of these categories will now include a maximum point value. In order to max out the points for military education, a Soldier will have to max out each of the three categories.

Category 1- Professional Military Education.

Includes appropriate NCOES and related academic and/or leadership achievements. The maximum points points in this section will be 104 for promotion to SGT and 112 for promotion to SSG. Points will be equivalent to the level of academic or leadership achievement upon graduation of appropriate NCOES, but point values readjusted as follows:

a. When competing for selection to SGT: WLC graduates will continue to receive 80 promotion points unless recognized as a member of the Commandant’s List, they will then receive 92 points. In order to receive the maximum points of 104 in this category the Soldier must have achieved Distinguished Honor Graduate status or be identified as the Distinguished Leadership Graduate.

b. When competing for selection to SSG: WLC graduates will continue to receive no promotions points. ALC graduates will now receive 90 promotion points. If recognized as having achieved Commandant’s List, they will now receive 101 points. In order to receive the maximum points of 112 in this category the Soldier must have achieved Distinguish Honor Graduate status or be identified as the Distinguished Leadership graduate.
