If you want to become a Career Counselor, now is probably the best time to enter the program as the Army grows and realigns its forces.

Below are the basic qualifications, some waivers are accepted on a case-by-case basis.

Fort Carson has one of the better Retention Programs in the Army, so you'll be working for a very successful and driven team.

The Career Counselor must possess the following qualifications:
(1) A physical demands rating--N/A.
(2) A physical profile of 122221.
(3) Qualifying scores.
(a) A minimum score of 110 in aptitude area GT waivable by Cdr, HRC, to 100 and 100 in aptitude area ST in Armed Services Vocational aptitude Battery (ASVAB) tests administered prior to 2 January 2002.
(b) A minimum score of 110 in aptitude area GT waivable by Cdr, HRC, to 100 and 96 in aptitude area ST on ASVAB tests administered on and after 2 January 2002.
(4) Be a U. S. citizen.
(5) Be at least 21 years old at the time of application.
(6) Must be serving on a second or subsequent tour.
(7) Must have 36 months time remaining in service upon completion of the Career Counselor Course. Action must be taken prior to course attendance.
(8) Be a SGT(P) or SSG.
(9) Be a BNCOC Graduate if available in their PMOS.
(10) Have no more than 8 years time in service, if SGT(P), and not more than 10 years time in service if SSG. SSGs must additionally have no more than 2 years time in grade. Requests for waivers will not be considered.
(11) Must have no history of lost or bad time during the current enlistment or in the past 3 years, whichever is longer.
(12) Must have no history of drug or alcohol dependency intervention program of any type.
(13) Not be pregnant at time of selection or prior to attendance at the Career Counselor Course.
(14) Have no marital, emotional, or major medical problems (to include immediate family members) that would hamper performance as a Career Counselor. (Every effort will be made to assign sponsors enrolled in the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) to a military installation where definitive medical care is available. This is not, however, a guarantee).
(15) Be a high school graduate with diploma; or have 1 year college.
(16) Be serving as a Reenlistment NCO at company or higher level for a minimum of 6 months, and be recommended by a LTC or higher commander and the MACOM Command Career Counselor.
(17) Must have prior completion of Mobile Retention Training Team (MRTT) Retention/Transition Program or Sub-course RR003.
(18) No record of conviction by special or general courts-martial or civilian courts of offenses listed in AR 27-10 (Military Justice), chapter 24 or otherwise required to register as a sexual offender under AR 27-10, chapter 24.
(19) Formal training (successful completion of the appropriate MOS 79S course conducted under the auspices of the Recruiting and Retention School) is mandatory.
(20) Must meet any additional selection criteria outlined in AR 601-280 (AA) or as announced in HQDA messages.


It's YOUR career! Take control of it before someone else does.

I know this is a old post but has any of the criteria changed. I am currently serving a retention nco and will be dropping my packet as soon as I can.

TIG has changed, don't need ALC and must have a secret clearance right off the top. Check your current 601-280, quals are there.
