Other Requirements for Award of MOS 15E:

(1) Normal color vision.
(2) A security eligibility of SECRET is required for the initial award and to maintain the MOS.
(3) Formal training (completion of MOS 15E under the auspices of the Army Aviation Logistics School) is mandatory. Waiver for formal training must be submitted to Cdr, USAACE, ATTN: ATZQ-AP, Ft Rucker, AL 36362-5000 for approval. (Army Regulation 95-23 mandates formal training at this time, no OJT or civilian acquired skill is authorized.)
(4) Alcohol and drug abuse as defined below will disqualify any Soldier or potential enlistee from this MOS. This disqualification will be waived, even though the Soldier/potential enlistee satisfactorily completes the Army Substance Abuse program or civilian equivalent, except as specified below.
(a) A medically diagnosed history of alcohol abuse as defined in the substance use disorder section of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 4th Edition, 2000 (DSM IV) is disqualifying. Commander, HRC may waive this disqualification after a Soldier/potential enlistee in this MOS successfully completes the ASAP Education, out-patient or inpatient programs, or it’s civilian equivalent, based on recommendations of the chain of command and the Commander, U.S. Army Aeromedical Center. A Soldier/potential enlistee who completes any aspect of ASAP and is involved in an additional offense involving alcohol or alcohol abuse will be immediately reclassified or denied enlistment in this MOS as high risk.
(b) Except as provided in (e) below, a wrongful or improper use of narcotic or other controlled substance or dangerous drug as defined by 21 USC 801, et. seq, is disqualifying.
(c) A positive result of urine test administered in accordance with AR 600-85 that leads to medical evaluation and a finding of “no diagnosis apparent, improper use” is disqualifying.
(d) Except as provided in (e) below, a documented instance of the sale, transfer, possession, or manufacture of any narcotic or other controlled substance or dangerous drug as defined by 21 USC 801, et. seq, is disqualifying. A documented instance includes conviction by any court martial or any civilian court. Convicting includes juvenile adjudication, nonjudicial punishment under Article 15, UCMJ, or voluntary confession after proper rights warning according to Article 31 (b), UCMJ.
(e) A Soldier or potential enlistee will not be disqualified for teenage civilian experimentation with marijuana or other cannabinoids disclosed in voluntary confessions of drug experimentation documented solely by information obtained from SF 2808 or SF 2807-2. Experimentation is defined as a one time use or casual use over a short period of time resulting from peer pressure. The use disclosed must have occurred prior to the individual’s 18th birthday, and prior to enlistment in any armed force.
(5) MOS closed for reclassification to Soldiers who have been deemed permanently non-deployable in accordance with AR 614-30, AR 40-501, AR 220-1 and AR 600-8-101. Soldiers must meet the minimum criteria for retainability stated in AR 600-60, paragraph 4-2(b) and be fully deployable to all locations and echelons.
