Employment Type

: Full-Time

Industry

: Miscellaneous



About Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewmen (SWCC) are specially trained to operate on and around rivers and coastal regions around the world. Wielding extreme firepower and a deadly skill set, SWCC operators support special warfare/special operations missions, as well as conduct direct action and special reconnaissance missions of their own.
As a SWCC, you may very likely: Insert and extract SEALs and other Special Operations personnel from a variety of Naval Surface Warfare vessels
Collect important data about enemy military installations and shipping traffic in coastal areas
Assist other military and civilian law enforcement agencies
Qualifications and Requirements No college degree is required to become an enlisted Navy SWCC operator, but the standards of qualification require the kind of mental and physical fortitude that few possess. For those making the cut, immense challenges and constant training are a way of life.
To qualify for SWCC training, you must: Meet specific eyesight requirements: 20/40 best eye; 20/70 worst eye; correctable to 20/25 with no color blindness
Meet the minimum Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) score: AR+VE=103, MC=51
Be 30 years of age or younger
Be a U.S. citizen and eligible for security clearance
The chart below highlights the current minimum Navy Physical Screening Test (PST) requirements for Navy Challenge Programs.
NOTE: If you're pursuing an NSW/NSO position, much better PST scoring is expected.
NOTE: You should consult your physician or other health-care professional before starting any exercise regime or other fitness program to determine if it is right for your needs. This is particularly true if you (or your family) have a history of medical illnesses or ailments that could be made worse by a change in physical activity. Do not start a fitness program if your physician or health-care provider advises against it.
General qualifications may vary depending upon whether you're currently serving, whether you've served before or whether you've never served before.
