* Advance your skills through hands-on experience and train and mentor others
* Receive potential financial incentives (availability of offer depends on specialty)
* Receive paid training and access to Navy-funded continuing education

Qualifications and Requirements: Candidates must satisfy specific criteria to be eligible for employment consideration.

* U.S. citizenship: Required
