Quartermaster | QM Information
The Quartermaster rating was first established in 1798 for deployment on frigates. The QM rating is one of the original Chief Petty Officer ratings. On October 1, 2003, the Signalman (SM) rating was disestablished and folded into the Quartermaster rating.
The Navy’s computerized personnel system associates the rating name with an alphanumeric Navy Occupational Specialty (NOS) code. For QM, the NOS is B450.
Quartermasters stand watch as assistants to officers of the deck and the navigator; serve as helmsman and perform ship control, navigation and bridge watch duties.
QMs procure, correct, use and stow navigational and oceanographic publications and oceanographic charts. They maintain navigational instruments and keep the correct navigational time.
Quartermaster class “A” school is nine weeks long, and the school is located in Great Lakes, Illinois. The QM rating requires a 5-year minimum enlistment obligation.
