  • Must have a letter of recommendation from a senior 120A (CW3-CW5). The letter must address your technical and tactical competence to perform in MOS 120A. For locations without senior 120A warrant officers, the proponent will accept letters of recommendation from senior warrant officers (CW3-CW5), regardless of branch. In conjunction with the senior warrant officer letter, the applicant must obtain a letter of recommendation from a junior 120A warrant officer. The junior 120A warrant officer letter will attest to the applicant's technical and tactical competency. Applicants may request a prerequisite waiver for the feeder MOS and apply based on three years of documented civilian experience (in the form of annual appraisals) related to MOS 120A, in lieu of any of the above primary feeder MOSs. Applicants should have two years of military leadership experience as a squad leader, platoon sergeant or section sergeant in their current MOS. Civilian engineering degrees and certifications related to MOS 120A will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, as part of the overall packet. These may be used to reduce the required years of military experience and allow for the waiver of ALC for applicants who do not have the required feeder MOS.
