In 2006 I was mobilized in the Reserves to fill an instructor position. I attended the AMEDDC&S Instructor Training Course and the Support Cadre Training Course. A few weeks after completion of these courses I was handed a copy of my Special Qualifying Identifier orders. It stated that I had been awarded the 8 identifier- for instructor. I completed the mobilization in 2007 and transitioned to active duty. I've been in the 25th ever since. Anyways- I've done some research and come to find that the SQI for certified enlisted instructors is "H", while "8" is the instructor SQI for Warrant Officers. What is the process for amending the orders and is it something I can do through my current S-1?
My information may or may not be outdated. If I'm not the only one holding an "8" identifier then I won't worry about it. If you're interested in where I found the information you can find it in TRADOC Regulation 350-70 Chapter II-1-3 Paragraph "f." This lists the identifiers as Officers-5K, WO-8, and Enlisted-H. I'll try posting a link.
Alright. Glad I asked on here before going to my S-1 with outdated information complaining about nothing. Like everybody else, I'd like to keep a good rapport with those guys. I'm content with the 8 SQI and I appreciate all of your feedback.
who told you that your SQI should be "H"? just got finished with the Army basic instructor course and cadre training course. my mos is now 14S3(8)K7 (parenthesized the 8 on purpose, whereas would have been a "O" if I had not been to ABIC & CTC. when the civilians update your erb these codes will reflect correctly. do not believe someone either who does not your same qualifications or hasnt gotten their erb updated in a while "HMMMM?"
