I'm currently an E5 being put into a squad leader position. Will this count as the needed rated time? I will be going to the board at the start of my primary zone this month as well.

As long as your start and through dates are correct it will be rated. As far as worrying as far as you did it as a SGT do you have to do it as a SSG. Most likely yes... Making sure your dates are correct are an absolute must, you never want unrated time. Your positions won't be a factor till your look at SFC. They will look at your last five NCOERs for sure. So by that time I'm sure your time as a SGT will all be in the past. However keep in mind special circumstances such as battlefield promotions and waivers of time could affect how many ncoers you have had by that time.

I figured that. But I wasn't sure if this NCOER that shows I have squad leader time could be with my board packet when I get my first look. And if it would coincide with my future E6 squad leader time.

When you get transferred to a different location and your incoming unit reviews your NCOER that can effect their decision on your next position.

Regardless of rank as long as your NCOER has you rated as a squad leader and your ERB reflects your rated time it will count

Needed time for what exactly? Rated time as an NCO or rated time in a leadership position?

Well SSG it's Ronny understanding that as an infantryman you are required to have a certain amount of time as a squad leader for promotion to SFC. My question could have been worded better I guess. What I'm asking is would my squad leader time as an E5 count as that needed time for E7?

SSG (Join to see) - To my understanding yes it does count. Anytime in a leadership position will definitely help you in your next promotion.

Fantastic. I wasn't sure if more fire team leader time looked better than becoming a squad leader at 7 months TIG as an E5. SSG (Join to see) -

SSG (Join to see) - well if your COC sees fit to put you in that position then you have showed them you have the qualities and leadership values for a squad leader.
