A colleague joined from one of the ME3 earlier this year. He has the hours, but needs 6 months post final line check before he can submit upgrade paperwork. Once he does so, assuming he meets the criteria, he should be loaded onto the next available command development course (running monthly). This leads into an assessment sim. Once complete the result is put before a command board. Success there leads to command training. Theoretically he could have a command by next summer, around 12-15 months after joining.

The preference would always be to promote from within, but there just isn't the throughput to meet current expansion.
