SUBJ: OCCUPATION NAME CHANGE: MARS TO NWO

  1. ALL ASPECTS OF THE RCN ARE BEING RETOOLED AND MODERNIZED IN PREPARATION FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF SHIPS. ONE OF THE MAJOR

UNDERTAKINGS OF OCCUPATION ANALYSIS (OA), AND MILITARY EMPLOYMENT

STRUCTURE IMPLEMENTATION PLANS (MESIP),ARE TO ENSURE THAT OUR

OCCUPATION STRUCTURES HAVE THE FLEXIBILITY AND AGILITY THAT WILL BE

REQUIRED AS A RESULT OF THE SMALLER CREW SIZES IN OUR NEW SHIPS.

WEAPONS ENGINEERING TECHNICIANS AND MARINE TECHNICIANS ARE NEW

OCCUPATIONS IN THE RCN, AND ANALYSIS ON THE COMBAT OPERATOR

OCCUPATION HAS BEGUN

  1. THIS WORK ALSO EXTENDS TO THE OFFICER CORPS. THE MARITIME SURFACE

AND SUBSURFACE (MARS) OCCUPATION MESIP HAS JUST BEEN COMPLETED. ONE

OF THE OUTCOMES OF THE MESIP WILL BE TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE

OCCUPATION TO BETTER REFLECT THE PROFESSION OF OUR NAVAL LEADERS,

MARINERS, WARRIORS AND MANAGERS IN ADDITION TO BE ABLE TO BETTER

COMMUNICATE THE PROFESSION TO CANADIANS. CONSEQUENTLY, THE

OCCUPATION NAME MARS OFFICER WILL BE RETIRED. OFFICERS OF THIS

OCCUPATION WILL HENCEFORTH BE KNOWN AS NAVAL WARFARE OFFICERS (NWO)

  1. THIS INITIATIVE IS NEITHER UNIQUE WITHIN, NOR TO, THE RCN. OUTSIDE THE RCN, THE NAMES OF SEVERAL CAF OCCUPATIONS WILL BE REVIEWED AND CHANGED AS PART OF THE OP GENERATION INITIATIVE UNDER THE RECENTLY ISSUED QUOTE STRONG, SECURE, ENGAGED END QUOTE DEFENCE POLICY. THE INTENT OF THESE NAME CHANGES IS TO CREATE MORE MODERN, PALATABLE NAMES THAT BOTH INSPIRE AND INFORM, WHILE REMOVING ANY AMBIGUITY OR PERCEIVED DISCRIMINATION ON EXISTING NAMES. THE NWO NAME WILL BE AMONG THE FIRST GROUP OF DIRECTOR PERSONNEL AND GENERATION REQUIREMENT (DPGR) LED OCCUPATION NAME CHANGES.
  2. ORDERS, DIRECTIVES, TRAINING MODULES AND RECRUITING MATERIAL WILL

BE ADJUSTED IN DUE COURSE AS WE INSTITUTIONALIZE THE NAME CHANGE.

NOTWITHSTANDING THESE PROCESSES, THE TITLE NWO IS EFFECTIVE

IMMEDIATELY. THE MOSID 00207, INCLUDING THE NUMERICAL DESIGNATION OF

THE APPLICABLE SUB-OCCUPATIONS, HAS NOT CHANGED. ANY QUESTIONS

REGARDING THIS CHANGE MAY BE DIRECTED TO THE NWO OCCUPATION

OBJET : CHANGEMENT DE NOM DE GROUPE PROFESSIONNEL – O MAR SS DEVIENT

OGN

  1. TOUS LES ASPECTS DE LA MRC SONT REPENSES ET MODERNISES EN

PREPARATION POUR LA PROCHAINE GENERATION DE NAVIRES. L UN DES

PRINCIPAUX OBJECTIFS DE L ANALYSE DES PROFESSIONS (AP) ET DU PLAN DE

MISE EN OEUVRE DE LA STRUCTURE DES EMPLOIS MILITAIRES (PMOSEM) EST DEFAIRE EN SORTE QUE NOS STRUCTURES DE GROUPES PROFESSIONNELS AIENT LASOUPLESSE ET LA POLYVALENCE NECESSAIRES POUR REFLETER LES EQUIPAGES MOINS NOMBREUX QUI SERONT EMPLOYES A BORD DE NOS NOUVEAUX NAVIRES. PARMI LES NOUVEAUX GROUPES PROFESSIONNELS MILITAIRES DE LA MRC, ON COMPTE LES TECHNICIENS EN GENIE DES ARMES ET LES TECHNICIENS DE MARINE. L ANALYSE DU GROUPE DES OPERATEURS DE COMBAT EST EN COURS

  1. CES TRAVAUX TOUCHENT AUSSI LE CORPS DES OFFICIERS. LE PLAN DE MISE EN OEUVRE DE LA STRUCTURE DES EMPLOIS MILITAIRES (PMOSEM) DU GROUPE DES OPERATIONS MARITIMES DE SURFACE ET SOUS-MARINE (MAR SS) EST TERMINE. L UN DES RESULTATS DE CE PMOSEM SERA DE CHANGER LE NOM DU GROUPE AFIN DE MIEUX REFLETER LES PROFESSIONS DE NOS DIRIGEANTS

NAVAL, MARINS, GUERRIERS ET ADMINISTRATEURS, AINSI QUE POUR MIEUX

COMMUNIQUER LEUR PROFESSION A LA POPULATION CANADIENNE. PAR CONSEQUENT, LES OFFICIERS DU GROUPE PROFESSIONNEL DE LA GUERRE

MARITIME DE SURFACE ET SOUS-MARINE SERONT DORENAVANT CONNUS SOUS LE

NOM D OFFICIERS DE GUERRE NAVALE (OGN)

  1. CETTE MESURE N EST PAS PROPRE A LA MRC. AILLEURS DANS LES FAC, LE

NOM DE PLUSIEURS GROUPES PROFESSIONNELS MILITAIRES SERONT REVISES ET

CHANGES DANS LE CADRE DE L INITIATIVE OP GENERATION DECOULANT DE LA

NOUVELLE POLITIQUE DE DEFENSE CIT PROTECTION, SECURITE, ENGAGEMENT

FINCIT. CES CHANGEMENTS ONT POUR BUT D INSTAURER DES APPELLATIONS

PLUS MODERNES ET JUSTES, A LA FOIS INSPIRANTES ET DESCRIPTIVES, AFIN

D ELIMINER TOUTE AMBIGUITE OU TOUTE DISCRIMINATION PERCUE QUE

CONTIENNENT LES APPELLATIONS ACTUELLES

  1. ON MODIFIERA EN TEMPS UTILE LES ORDRES, LES DIRECTIVES, LES

MODULES D INSTRUCTION ET LES DOCUMENTS DE RECRUTEMENT PERTINENTS, A

MESURE QUE LE CHANGEMENT DE NOM EST MIS EN OEUVRE. BIEN QUE LE

PROCESSUS D OFFICIALISATION DU CHANGEMENT NE SOIT PAS ENCORE TERMINE, L APPELLATION OGN ENTRE EN VIGUEUR IMMEDIATEMENT. AUCUN CHANGEMENT N EST APPORTE A L ID SGPM 00207, AINSI QU A LA DESIGNATION NUMERIQUE DES SOUS-GROUPES VISES. SI VOUS AVEZ DES QUESTIONS CONCERNANT CE CHANGEMENT, PRIERE DE COMMUNIQUER AVEC LE CAPC FRASER GRANSDEN, SUPERVISEUR DU GROUPE OGN AU DPIM.
