Promotion points are derived from the most recent qualification score but not older than 24 months with individual assigned weapon.

The most recent qualification will be used. However, if the soldier fails to qualify through his or her own fault, the PSB will withdraw any previous awarded points.When the soldier qualifies he or she may add the promotion points through reevaluation process. Qualification score will be provided by the commander. If individual weapon qualification cannot be provided by the commander and verifying information is not available, zero promotion points will be awarded.

A soldier’s individually assigned weapon should normally be the M16A2 rifle; however, it may be another individually assigned weapon when duty requires (for example, 45 or 38 caliber pistol for military police). The commander’s decision applies.

Weapons qualification charts are below. Soldiers assigned to an organization without weapons can use their latest qualification. However, once assigned to an organization with weapons, the soldier will have 12 months to qualify or lose the points.

Firing range scores convert to administrative promotion points as follows:
