Frocking, early promotions, and “merit” promotions are NOT authorized.

Advancement Authority. The unit commanding officer is the advancement and signature authority for NLCC rates up to PO1. The Executive Director is the signature authority for SLPO, but these advancements are approved by the unit commanding officer. When appointing to SLPO, the unit commanding officer will select the name of the current Executive Director from the drop-down box on the “Add a Promotion” page. The NLCC Petty Officer Advancement Certificate with Executive Director Signature will be available for downloading and printing from the cadet’s landing page in Magellan. NLCC advancements are administrative and require no action from National Headquarters.
