Not Operationally Suitable

Navy NECs


The Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) system supplements the enlisted rating structure in identifying personnel on active or inactive duty and billets in manpower authorizations. NEC codes identify a non-rating wide skill, knowledge, aptitude, or qualification that must be documented to identify both people and billets for management purposes.

For example, if a Navy police officer ( MA -- Master at Arms ) receives specialized training as a K-9 Dog Handler, he/she would be awarded NEC MA-2005. From that point on, the sailor could be assigned to Navy law enforcement duties involving military working dogs.

Below are the NECs for the NOT OPERATIONALLY SUITABLE community area:

00DT Dental Tracking NEC (applies to rating: HM)

0090 Not Operationally Suitable (applies to rating: ALL)

0091 Fit for Continued Naval Service but Not Worldwide Assignable (applies to rating: ALL)

0096 Combat Zone Injury-Illness, Non-Hostile (applies to rating: ALL)
