JPMP officers help meet the demands for military instructors at the USNA. The JPMP program provides a stable source of officers in the grade of Lieutenant Commander with the appropriate professional experience and academic preparation to teach at the USNA.
The JPMP component seeks post-department head URL or IDC Lieutenant Commanders with relevant master’s degrees and preferably with teaching experience to join the faculty of USNA.
USNA is authorized up to 40 JPMPs, consisting entirely of Lieutenant Commander (O-4) billets. Subject to available funding, JPMPs not already possessing a relevant master’s degree may attend designated civilian institutions to obtain a master’s degree. For more guidance, please see OPNAV INSTRUCTION 1520.40B.
