View current packet submission deadlines and board dates.
Thank you for your interest in 51C MOS. We are currently revising the 51C Reclassification Board process by transitioning to a virtual board packet. Therefore, the January board has been cancelled. Packets will only be accepted through our virtual board system which is expected to come online early in the 2nd Quarter, FY 14. The next board will be held April 22-23, 2014. Please monitor our website for current news and updates about the reclassification process.
Soldier prepares Reclassification packet and submits the information via email to the 51C Proponent Office (USARMY Ft Belvoir USAASC Mailbox USAASC FA51-CMF51) for 51C reclassification consideration. Please do not mail hardcopy packets.
The U.S. Army Acquisition Support Center (51C Proponent) in conjunction with HRC Reclassification Branch, will review Soldier requests for reclassification and provide additional guidance to Retention NCO and the Soldier as required.
Step 3 Expect notification of approval or disapproval between 25 – 30 days.
Upon approval of the Soldiers reclassification packet, the Soldier will attend 51C Reclassification training and be reassignment to a Contracting Unit upon successfully of the training.
Upon completion of MOS training, the Soldier will be awarded the MOS 51C and managed as an AL&T Contracting NCO.
