Additional Qualification Designation codes enhance billet designator codes by identifying more specifically the qualifications of the officer or the qualifications required by a billet. The AQD structure:
- Identifies additional qualifications, skills and knowledge required to perform the duties of a billet beyond those implicit in the billet designator, grade or subspecialty.
- Identifies billets that provide unique qualifications for the billet incumbent.
- Facilitates retrieval of information required to support officer personnel planning.
A general listing of AQDs can be found in the Manual of the Navy Officer Manpower and Personnel Classifications (Vol 1) Part D.
In accordance with BUPERSINST 1001.39E (page 9-5), Reserve officers may request an AQD by contacting PERS-4911 at
