Customarily held in Pensacola, Florida, Advancement Exam Readiness Reviews (AERRs) bring together fleet subject matter experts (FSMEs) consisting of chiefs, senior chiefs and master chiefs from fleet and shore-based commands to review and develop the rating examination material from which enlisted advancement exams are created.
Like other businesses and organizations in the past year, the Navy Advancement Center (NAC) adapted in-person essential events to a fully virtual format to counter the COVID-19 threat.
“The virtual Advancement Exam Readiness Review (AERR) process has allowed us to continue to produce valid and current enlisted advancement exams,” said Marionette Marks, an exam development branch head. “We are able to use the expertise and experience of FSMEs to accomplish small chunks of the enlisted advancement exam process in order to continue meeting the promotion goals needed to support fleet readiness.”
