Like always, good leaders work hard preparing their Soldiers for promotion from sergeant to staff sergeant. With the demand of Soldiers deploying to Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation New Dawn, some eligible sergeants may have not attended Warrior Leader Course. The Warrior Leader Course remains an eligibility requirement for staff sergeant, and must be completed before a Soldier can be recommended by their chain of command to be boarded.
According to MILPER Message 11-102, dated March 31, to be eligible for a waiver, Soldiers must meet the following criteria: first, the Soldier is currently deployed; second, the Soldier is assigned to a Warrior Transition Unit; third, they must be fully eligible for recommendation to staff sergeant, except for completing the requisite WLC; and lastly, a Soldier assigned to the Defense Language Institute may request a WLC waiver.
Those requesting a waiver must provide the proper supporting documents in order to be considered. A Department of Army Form 4187 must fully justify, with clear and explicit explanation, as to why the Soldier has not been able to complete WLC up to this point in his/her career, and why the waiver should be approved. Include information and be specific about dates of deployments and a projected return date from deployment.
If a Soldier is in DLI, they must provide the date of assignment to the institute and the projected date of school completion. If a Soldier is in a WTU, they must provide the date of assignment to the unit and a projected release date.
Additional information that must accompany the DA Form 4187 is the unit enlisted promotion report, for which the attached Soldier is listed. Also, if the Soldier was deployed, deployment orders with inclusive dates or assignment orders in DLI or WTU, and the unit order of merit list for WLC depicting the affected Soldier, must accompany the DA Form 4187. Simply put, a Soldier cannot say, “I was deployed, and I feel I should get a wavier.”
Once the DA Form 4187 is complete with all required supporting documentation, it must be endorsed by the first lieutenant colonel commander in the Soldier’s chain of command and routed through the servicing military personnel office to [email protected]
The waiver approval authority is Human Resources Command, not your battalion commander. Keep in mind, once your action is submitted to HRC, it is a pending action waiting on an approval. Once the action is approved by HRC, the servicing military personnel office will be notified of the waiver decision via email. Commanders and Soldiers know that until the waiver is approved by HRC, the Soldier should not be boarded until an approved waiver is received.
Soldiers who received a WLC waiver (whether promoted to staff sergeant or on the promotion standing list) will be either administratively reduced or have their names removed from the local promotions standing list if they fail to complete WLC within 270 days of redeployment or release from DLI or WTU, unless the timeframe is extended by Department of the Army
Soldiers requiring an extension will route the DA Form 4187 in the same manner as the initial waiver procedure. Circumstances affecting a Soldier’s non-compliance of WLC must be clearly stated. The 270-day window begins the first day the Soldier returns from their deployed theater of operation or is released from DLI or WTU, regardless of when boarded. For further information see MILPER Message 11-102, your servicing military personnel office, or your local Inspector General office. As always, we are here to help.

These units are not authorized a SPC waiver promotion if the unit has a SPC and/ or CPL serving in the waiver zone. f. Total number of assigned PV2 with less.
The purpose of the Waiver of Promotional Examination Policy is to explain, clarify and reinforce the Civil Service Commission's policy with regard to waiving examinations for police and fire promotional titles. Waivers of competitive examinations for promotional titles are controlled by N.J.A.C. 4A:4-2.7.
Waivers of competitive examinations for promotional titles are controlled by N.J.A.C. 4A:4-2.7, which provides that the Chair of the Civil Service Commission may authorize such waiver when all of the following factors are met:
(1) The employee has been successfully tested in the basic skills required for the promotional title;
(2) The employee has not failed, within one year prior to the announced closing date, a promotional examination for that title. However, an employee who subsequently passed an examination for that title shall be eligible for promotion;
(3) The number of interested eligibles for the promotional examination does not exceed the number of promotional appointments by more than two; and
(4) Veterans preference rights are not a factor.
The term “successfully tested” mentioned in (1) above refers to whether the employee previously has passed an examination, administered by the Civil Service Commission, which measures the “basic skills” that are required to successfully perform the work associated with the promotional title. The basic skills of every job title are identified in a job analysis process and the extent to which they are measured is a function of the design and validity of the examination or selection instrument. Since various titles within a given title series typically require some common and “basic” knowledge, skills and abilities, it may be unnecessary to re-test an employee when conditions (2), (3) or (4) above apply, if the employee has already demonstrated proficiency in those areas.
After six months in the Army and two months as a PV2, you are eligible for a waiver for promotion to PFC. Finally, a waiver for an SPC.
