The U.S. Navy recently updated Sea Shore Flow (SSF) Enlisted Career Paths. Here are five things you need to know: (1) 42 ratings will not be impacted, 13 ratings will require more sea time, and 15 ratings will require less sea time; (2) No two ratings are alike. Each rating is assigned an enlisted career path based on the number of sea duty and shore duty billets the rating has, how long initial training takes, and expected retention within the rating; (3) Tour lengths will change. With force structure changes come billet changes and therefore tour length changes; (4) Projected Rotation Dates (PRDs) within the next 12 months will not automatically be changed; and (5) other changes will impact specific ratings.
