Standards Regarding Military Experience

Meeting this qualification is not a form of direct entry. It allows the applicant to be interviewed during the normal selection process.
If selected under this provision, the JATC will determine, using standard means of evaluation, of OJT and/or related instruction credit will be awarded for previous training and experience.
