1. The Coronavirus global pandemic requires our service to prioritize efforts focused on mission execution, force preservation, and personnel readiness. Consistent with that focus, and to reduce stress on our workforce during this challenging time, the May 2020 SWE cycle announced in reference (A) has been cancelled. The 2020 MCAP, originally scheduled for May 2020 per reference (B), will be postponed until August/September 2020. The November 2020 SWE will encompass testing for E5-E8.
2. EPM will provide amplifying guidance and FAQs on the 2020 MCAP and November 2020 SWE at the next possible opportunity. We will strive toward minimal impact on potential advancements beginning 01 Jan 2021.
