Upon completion of the training program, the employee will be eligible for a one-time accelerated promotion to the next higher-grade level. The training program will consist of a combination of on-the-job assignments, formal and informal training, and self-development activities sufficient to prepare the trainee to perform the duties of the next higher level.
    • Each new engineer hired onto NSWC PHD will have noncompetitive promotion potential to the GS-12 level. Noncompetitive promotion means that you will not have to compete with other employees in order to be promoted to the next higher-grade level. Because work performance and conduct are factors to consider, promotions are not guaranteed.
