Acting Rank

#2
18 months. If you take and pass CLM in those 18 months then you keep the rank.

In theory, however there are exceptions to every rule.

18 months if you have been selected for promotion.

6 months if you have not been selected for promotion. After 6 months the CO has to apply and to justify to extend for another 6 months. Acting rank has to be approved by MCM Div. If the management has scewed up and not reapplied every 6 months MCM Div can reduce you back to substansive rank and reclaim back overpayment of wages.

The claiming back of wages is a bit harsh as it is not the individual's fault, except you are expected to manage your own career (I know that bit is a joke, but that's the policy) so best be prepared.

What kind of exceptions are there to the rule. some one once told me that if you held the rank for more than 12 months you could not revert , do you know if this is true.

No it's not true.

So you have not been selected for promotion to Sgt.

Your acting rank was for the good of the service. Your service at that rank is no longer required.

What I would be asking is that if you have been doing the job for 3 years then your SJAR should state that your performance has been above that expected as you are a Cpl for the past 3 years.

Why haven't you been selected for promotion?

I was selected for promotion to Sgt. and it was published that i picked up off the board , that is the bit I dont understand and their is still the need for me to carry on in the rank . SJAR state's that my performance has been above that expected as a Cpl for the past 3 years.

So for 2 1/2 years you have known that you are acting rank.

You just revert to substansive rank!

Granted it's not good man managemant, but what mess?

We have a new Adj and he wants to get rid of ded wood so to say .
Or is he correcting errors?

So you were told that you came off the board and then 6 months later told that it was a mistake. You were lucky to have kept the rank for another 2 and a half years. A situation that can't go on forever.

In the small print of the promotion selection system it says that as well as being selected for promotion, you must also be QUALIFIED for promotion. They are not they same thing. It is quite common for people to be selected, and then have to become qualified. Most do quickly, clearly in your case you havn't.

Being P7 isn't a good start either. Grading Boards will see that you are P7, but grading is done on the basis of performance - the actual promotions will then be done on the basis of the individuals being fully qualified and eligible.
