Well, updating a database program is something no one else in the world does, so it's understandable the Navy would experience some hiccups.Word on the street here in the NCR are the new changes to PRIMS will not be fully implemented until Aug'17. It has been recommended / suggested that folks keep hard copies of all of their BCA/PRT/PRIMS paperwork until then.
For the first time in my career, I had to do something other than the run, and I knew that going in. The new form was a quagmire of boxes that I'm not sure anyone really knew which one was the right one to check in order to get to the end result that we all already knew.We're in the midst of our Spring PFA. All of our documentation is being done on paper, to be backfit into the new & improved PRIMS at a date TBD. For those who haven't seen it, the new medical screening form looks like it was designed by an ill-tempered lemur.
Why? You act like someone is going to come around and inspect you. Next thing you'll be telling us is that we need to worry about proper vending machine safety protocol.Don't forget to create muster sheets to log whenever you do FEP. Keep them on file for about ten years so you'll have them next time PRIMS is down.
Yeah, but props to Big Navy for both creating an incentive to do more than the minimum and decreasing one small bit of admin ass-pain for those of us who can meet the requirement. If you're not a fatbody, and you can be trusted to stay in shape independently, you can get tested once a year? I'm not going to knock common sense when it shows up.In other news, HYT slid right two years....I'd say a bigger impact than PRT on our Sailors...
