WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Chief of Naval Personnel officials announced today in NAVADMIN 308/13 that the Cycle 222 Active Duty E7 exam date has been changed from Jan. 16 to Jan. 14.

The change is to avoid disruption of the testing process due to a potential lapse in government funding.

Personnel Support Detachments staffed by civilians and contractors could be forced to reduce services without funding, making exam administration unfeasible.

Roughly 35,000 first class petty officers are scheduled to take the exam, changing the date will ensure the process is fair and orderly for all involved.
