I am currently in the 88L20 course, which is pretty much continuing education for my MOS. It's 4 months at Ft. Eustis in the school house. I've heard that other jobs just give you your "20" when you get promoted to Sgt. Besides 88L and 88K, do you know of any other MOS's that require more schooling to hold a license?

- Just a guess but I think most of the 120 MOSs within the Army do not have 20 level PME (professional military education). Some do. Evidently 88L and 88K are two of them.
- 10 level is BCT/AIT, 20 level is WLC (generic not MOS specific), 30 level is ALC, 40 level is SLC generally speaking.
- Most of the 23 MOS within the Engineer Regiment have an associated ALC and SLC required for promotion. There are exceptions but the details are not critical for your question or this discussion. Goes to how the Engineer Regiment grows our MOSs and our personnel (three MOSs combined into one MOS at the E6 paygrade, senior MOS such as 12X and 12Z, stuff like that.
- Two MOSs that require schooling to hold a license or rank include 12D (Diver) and 12M (Firefighter). Neither, however, has an MOS specific 20 level course.

We have to go to the WLC, ALC, and SLC along with our 10, 20, 30, and 40 schools. People seem to not understand that ALC and 20/30 school are not the same thing for us.

People you need to look at both 88K and 88L MOS, before anyone state that Army do not have 20 level PME (professional military education).

I am fairly certain that para-professional MOSs do. (Medical community). I would think that supply and S1 world as well due to the increased level of complexity and responsibilities.

All 20 lvl will show on your erb when you reach SGT. E-5 the school is to certify you through DOD it's the same for all MOS certifications past 10 lvl
