The U.S. Navy has released an update on the Sailor 2025 Rating Modernization's four lines of effort (LOE): Career Fields, Marketplace Force Management, Advancement, and Credentialing. Navy ratings have been aligned into 23 career fields and 12 broad communities. Information about the revised NEC construct and communities and career fields can be found on the Navy Personnel Command website. Navy Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL) recently reduced the minimum service remaining on a Sailor's enlistment contract to earn credentials from 12 to six months. Sailors can research information on civilian and federal occupations mapped to their ratings on the Navy COOL website.
