Effective Jan. 1, the responsibility for recruitment and selection of fleet subject matter experts (FSMEs) for advancement exam readiness review (AERR) panels will transfer from U.S. Fleet Forces Command to type commands and rating sponsors. The AERR selection realignment will ensure a common approach to community leadership involvement in FSME selection and nomination. Type commanders (TYCOMs) will be responsible for nominating AERR FSMEs for the ratings under their purview. AERR participants receive temporary additional duty orders from their parent command, paid for by the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) at Saufley Field in Pensacola, Florida. NETPDC maintains the current AERR schedule on My Navy Portal.
