A joint service agreement allows servicemembers who are selected for this program to be discharged from their service and enlisted in the Army. Applicants must apply for this program while on active duty and must have 12 months or more remaining on their enlistment contract; civilians must contact their local Army recruiter. Applications are forwarded from the individual to United States Army Recruiting Command (USAREC). After screening, the application is forwarded to the appropriate proponent who evaluates the applicants' technical experience and determines if the applicant is qualified to compete against other qualified applicants for the limited warrant officer positions. Applications from those who are not technically qualified will be returned to the applicant without further processing. Further requirements for Non-Army personnel are listed below under "Additional Requirements For Non-Army Personnel".
A selection board will consider fully qualified applications. Selection is highly competitive and board members select applicants based upon the whole person concept. Leadership and technical abilities will be evaluated and only the best qualified will be selected.
**DD 368 is required for all Sister Service Applicants**
DD 368 - SMs will obtain an approved DD 368 through their Servicing Personnel Office. The DD 368 must have a projected Re-Entry Code, Separation Program Designator (SPD) code, Expired Term of Service (ETS), Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC) or Navy Rate, and annotation of any lost time in whole days, provided in the remarks blocks on page 2 of the DD 368.
Commissioned Officers from the Air Force, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard CAN apply through the in-Service Warrant Officer Selection Board (WOSB) for 153A (Initial Entry Rotary Wing Course-Flight School). In addition to all other requirements, they will need a Conditional Release (DD Form 368) approved by their respective Commander and personnel office and a conditional resignation of commission memorandum (see Downloads tab for samples). All (non-aviators) officers that desire to be boarded for 153A will be boarded in May and November.
Clarification for sister service officers as mentioned above: if selected by the board, HRC will consider officers with an approved and valid conditional release and/or separation orders or DD214s as separated AT THE TIME OF APPOINTMENT for Initial Warrant Officer Appointment. The new appointment would be based upon the USAREC in-Service WO board selection AND subsequent receipt of Confirmed Appointment Scroll. The scroll may take more than six months to process and HRC Officer Accessions Branch works closely with applicant for any issues with the scrolling process. Rank for sister service officers as mentioned above: Initial WO appointment is to the rank of WO1. Upon acceptance of appointment, former Commissioned Officers may apply to HRC promotions for recognition of their previous commissioned time in order to receive a Regular Army promotion to CW2. This process will take several months in order to generate and receive a confirmed promotion scroll. Upon receipt of a confirmed Regular Army scroll, service member can be promoted to CW2 with a Date of Rank (DOR) adjusted to the first date of eligibility (i.e. day after WOBC if applicable).

- Retesting procedures (Improve ASVAB score or take initial SIFT)
- For individuals who do not meet the aptitude requirement (110 GT) for entry into the Warrant Officer Program, they will need to take the Armed Forces Classification Test (AFCT). The AFCT is the in-service version of the ASVAB. Individuals will need to take the test within their service, have the scores posted to their official military file, and have their personnel component certify a true copy of the record.
- Individuals should ensure that they study for this test, as failure to achieve the required score will result in a retest of the AFCT in its entirety. Baron's and ARCO have good study guides that are available at most local libraries and bookstores. Procedures to covert scores to Army standards as outlined above apply.
- Those individuals who request to take the SIFT must take a copy of the letter certifying their ASVAB scores to the nearest Army Education Center or testing facility in order to schedule the exam with them.

The request should include last ASVAB test date (if the test date is not the original test, and was a retest prior to 2003 the Marine must test with the ASVAB before scores can be converted) and where the exam is to be taken with a point of contact and phone number. The SIFT must be administered at an Army facility. An authorization letter from HQMC will be forwarded to the Army Personnel Testing Coordinator who will give the Army Test Contraol Officer (TCO) authorization to test the Marine.
