Company: US Navy
Posted on: May 11, 2022
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
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.
