A great way to serve your country and be a part of something big and meaningful
Supervisor / Amphibious Ready Group Staff Officer (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 25, 2018
My experience in the Navy is as a Surface Warfare Officer (SWO). SWO's are personnel who are trained and qualified to perform duties aboard United States surface warships.
In order to qualify as a SWO, one must qualify as officer of the deck (both underway and in port), small boat officer, combat information center watch officer, and must be trained in shipboard engineering, naval history, and damage control. For further, enterprise-level training, officers will attend Surface Warfare Officers' School (SWOS) in Newport, Rhode Island between all sea tours.
good management and training pipeline, good compensation package
