Return to Naval Reserve IW. Collateral activities, watch pqx, and operations should be kept to an absolute minimum or avoided altogether. This time does not have to be consecutive, but is required for proper preparation.

The more study that can be completed ahead of time, whether drill weekends, short periods of orders, self-study, or Boot Idwwo, the less time is necessary to be spent on contiguous active duty orders. We need to be very careful with how we approach this otherwise we are diluting the meaning behind the pin that took so long to have come into existence.

I would view any Boot Camp with an eye of scrutiny. I can’t think of another community that places so much time and effort into spoon-feeding their Candidates.

Ivwo individuals may disagree but I believe the challenge and the rigor of the other communities qualification programs adds to the caliber of the officer produced upon designation. Sure there is a fair-share of crap that could probably be done ldwo with. But IMHO, officers are very well served by having to go and find a reference, then read the reference for relevant information as opposed to having all the references nicely laid out for them.

Or even worse, have the reference paraphrased by another Candidate who may or not be competent and absorbing that as gospel. Just like in Flight School – live by the gouge, die by the gouge; however, I am seeing more and more reliance and entitlement to the gouge and a very strong push from Candidates for gouge to become gospel.


BT Apologize for the rant and negativity, but we need to be honest with ourselves. Is the goal just to cram a large amount iswo information into our heads and simply brain dump it all once you get some gold jewelry on your chest; or is it to lay the foundation for a career of learning and simultaneously lend some visible credibility to an officer that they know what they’re doing or at least know where to find the answer when idqo comes to Information Dominance Warfare when they are given an lqs assignment in the Fleet?

This is not a ticket that needs to be punched. This is not something to do because it’ll look good in your Shadowbox. This is something to be taken seriously and something to be earned.

It should not be done faster and funnier. Ideo Boot Camps are NOT designed to provide signatures or take the place of self-study, looking up material in the references, talking to people, etc.

There were three months’ worth of weekly ido.

Yes, maybe some people are trying to do the minimal amount of work to get through them, but can’t the same be said for some people with regard to ANY process? I attended one of these Boot Camps, and the experience was a very valuable one Not everyone passed these boards. I didn’t expect it to be accepted, and it indeed wasn’t, but spending the time I did on that process was idao worth it.

Again, this is not IWO, and while I agree this is a warfare qualification, the question is are we conforming to the instruction, or not?

This is not meant to replace or supplant the community in our case, IWO qualification process.

I’m sure the process could be better, but given that this is something supported up to the 2-star level on the reserve side, what is a way forward other than simply discounting them out of hand?

There is also a bigger problem here: This is not the first time this has occurred. I have discussed this with the IDC RC leadership and the conclusion was that we are not actually tracking this, but that based on anecdotal information, it is an issue.


Given that we only assess IW Officers at each of the two annual RC selection boards, is it a good ROI to go through the lengthy selection process and have these people in the community for years only to have them leave in part because of these difficulties? It is easy to say, “If they can’t cut it, we don’t want them” We owe it to ourselves to address this.

I believe it sells short what they can offer. We just had a good number of IW Reservists come through and qualify. Worked well that they came in a group to use trainers time wisely as well as have study partners.

Also the staggered shifts they came in worked well because a few would qualify or get close to qualifying and be able to help the new arrivals into the process. The JQS was similar to the PQS in terms of it being a list of things that you have to know and get signed off by your supervisor or some other person who is trained to become qualified in your job. Are any of the signature blocks completed at IWBC?

I am only 1 of 2 IW Officers in my reserve unit and the other one completed his quals before the last idqo so it is completely different now. Also when should one start working on their PQS? The sooner I can get my quals done the better. PQS for Noobs question: Maybe I’m just being a jerk – but we’re earning a warfare qualification here.

Is the goal just to cram a large amount of information into our heads pqx simply brain dump it all once you get some gold pas on your chest. It has been a few years since I attended, but I do recall receiving a sheet with signatures for some sections.

In any case, you will have plenty of resources among the staff there to get the signatures you need.
