For those with further leadership aspirations and a college degree, Officer roles are available - providing opportunities to lead and train others.

Beyond offering access to professional credentials and certifications, Navy training in the EOD community can translate to credit hours toward a bachelor's or associate degree through the American Council on Education. You may also continue your education through opportunities like: * Navy College Program and Tuition Assistance * Post-9/11 GI Bill QUALIFICATIONS & REQUIREMENTS Males and females are eligible to apply to become Enlisted Navy Divers.
