Soldiers competing for sergeant in January will no longer have 16 promotion points available to them for completing the online "Structured Self-Development I" course. Additionally, Soldiers who have not completed SSD-I will not be eligible for promotion to sergeant for the Jan. 1 promotion cycle. The new rules were laid out in a Nov. 25 MILPER message involving structured self-development and semi-centralized promotions. The message says that beginning in December, Soldiers who complete the SSD-I course will not get any points for it. The message also makes it clear that the SSD-I course is a requirement for promotion to sergeant.
