Sailors Attend First Class Petty Officer’s Symposium
First Class Petty Officers (FCPOs) stationed at Pearl Harbor gathered at Hickam Memorial Theater on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam to attend a First Class Petty Officer’s symposium, Feb. 25.
The symposium drew approximately 200 FCPOs who were looking to gain leadership and career advice from the Pearl Harbor Chief’s Action Group, in conjunction with the First Class Petty Officer’s Association.
Topics covered during the symposium included important changes occurring in today’s Navy, tips for maintaining an individual’s electronic service record, career information and policies, Individual Augmentee assignments, and more.
Sailors who attended the symposium found the training worthwhile in conjunction with the goals they had set for themselves upon making first class and beginning their journey to the chief petty officer’s selection board.
Additionally, many of the topics during the symposium were geared toward helping the FCPOs better understand the process of preparing their service record for selection to chief petty officers. Navy heritage, ethics, proper fitness and nutrition were all covered in an effort to help even the newest FCPOs in attendance begin planning their route to khaki leadership.
