It was designed to aid instructors and students alike. Created by command and maintenance master chiefs from the aviation community to align with the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy's requirement for all enlisted Sailors to be warfare qualified, the new program will do away with the old personnel qualification standards PQS books and replace them with a qualification card. The change goes deeper than the amount of paperwork a Sailor needs to get signed. Sailors will have 30 months to complete the four-phase qualification card from the date of enrollment, with 24 months being the estimated average time of completion. The first phase includes force-wide common core requirements that work hand-in-hand with command indoctrination that every Sailor completes the first few months aboard their ship or squadron. The second phase covers departmental qualifications.

Successful completion of the Enlisted Aviation PQS requires sailors to pass a written and an oral exam.
