Or even worse, have the reference paraphrased by another Candidate who may or not be competent and absorbing that as gospel. Return to Naval Reserve IW.
Maybe I’m just being a jerk – but we’re earning a warfare qualification here. This is not meant to replace or supplant the community in our case, IWO qualification process.

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. I believe it sells short what they can offer. It has been a few years since I attended, but I do recall receiving a sheet with signatures for some sections.
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? 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 didn’t expect it to be accepted, and it indeed wasn’t, but spending the time I did on that process was well worth it. It is easy to say, “If they can’t cut it, we don’t want them” Are any of the signature blocks completed idao IWBC?
The Boot Camps are NOT designed to provide signatures or take the place of self-study, looking up material in the references, idw to people, etc. This is not a ticket that needs to be punched.

Not everyone passed these boards. BT Apologize for the rant and negativity, but we need to be honest with ourselves. 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.
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.
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.

PQS for Noobs question: 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? The sooner I can get my quals done the better. I can’t think of another community that places so much time and effort into spoon-feeding their Candidates.
This is something to be taken seriously and something to be earned. Is the goal just to cram a large amount of information into our heads and simply brain dump it all once you get some gold jewelry on your chest.
This is not something to do because it’ll look good in your Shadowbox. We owe it to ourselves to address this. This is not the first time this has occurred. Sure there is a fair-share of crap that could probably be done away with. In any case, you will have plenty of resources among the staff there to get the signatures you need.
Fair-minded 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.
We just had a good number of IW Reservists come through and qualify. Yes, maybe some people are trying to do the minimal amount of work to get through qps, but can’t the same be said for some people with regard to ANY process? The more study that can be completed ahead of time, whether drill weekends, short periods of orders, self-study, or Boot Camps, the less time is necessary to be spent on contiguous active duty orders.
It should not be done faster and funnier. Is the goal just iddwo cram a large amount of information into our heads and simply brain dump it all once you get some gold jewelry on your chest; pq is it to lay the foundation for a career of learning and simultaneously lend some visible credibility to an officer that idwl know what they’re doing or at least know where to find the answer when it comes to Information Dominance Warfare when they are given an operational assignment in the Fleet?
Collateral activities, watch standing, and operations should be kept to an absolute minimum or avoided altogether.
There were three months’ worth of weekly 1. Also when should one start working on their PQS? I attended one of these Boot Camps, and the experience was a very valuable one idwwo
