Nuclear Submarine Officer (Utah & Idaho)

About this Job

Submarines are the cornerstone of the Navy’s conflict avoidance and resolution, and naturally, the Officers who man these ships are held to the highest of standards and have extraordinary roles and responsibilities. Only a select group of disciplined and committed Officers are given the opportunity to lead departments up to an entire crew, commanding some of the most technologically advanced equipment in the world. As one of these highly-skilled Officers, you could be in charge of any of the following:
·     Operating a nuclear reactor and nuclear propulsion system
·     Maintaining onboard weapons systems
·     Managing atmosphere control and fire control
·     Driving the vessel and charting its position
·     Operating communications and intelligence equipment
Whether on a covert, classified mission or a typical day of operation, as a Submarine Officer you’ll gain valuable lifelong experiences, advanced nuclear training and high-level responsibility from day one. Submarine Officers are exposed to a variety of different work environments – from academic settings to training on prototype units to eventual sea tours and shore assignments. The time spent on submarines involves deployments of a few to several months at a time, requiring the obvious adjustment to life on a submarine. Here, however, you will find technology, surroundings and experience that rate among the most unique and impressive in the Navy today. Once fully qualified, members may go on to hold positions that involve instructing, advising, consulting, recruiting or even commanding a submarine.
