The Navy Subspecialty Code

Courses taken in the METOC Curriculum fall into two major categories, degree requirements and subspecialty or “p-code” requirements. The p-code courses have been carefully chosen to increase the direct military relevance of the coursework thus satisfying the Education Skill Requirements (ESRs) agreed upon by the curriculum sponsor. The current ESRs for the METOC curriculum are available here (pdf).

Completion of this curriculum qualifies an officer as a METOC Subspecialist with a subspecialty code of 6401P. The Curriculum Sponsor is the Oceanographer of the Navy (CNO N84).
