Whether getting the job done in a bomb suit or by utilizing state-of-the-art robotic technology, Navy EODs are trained to use the most advanced tools of their kind in a role that's vital to the safety of servicemembers and civilians.
As a Navy EOD Technician, you will have many far-ranging duties that can cast you on missions across the world. Your duties may require you to:


  • Detonate and demolish hazardous munitions, pyrotechnics and outdated explosives
  • Work with cutting-edge technology to remotely disable unsafe ordnance
  • Perform parachute or helicopter insertion operations
  • Support law enforcement agencies
  • Clear waterways of mines in support of the Fleet

    Your unique skills and knowledge will add to the strengths of other Special Operations units, as well as your own. As an EOD Technician, you may also:

    • Locate, identify, neutralize, recover and dispose of various ordnances, such as sea mines, torpedoes and depth charges
    • Support other Special Operations/Special Warfare units, such as Navy SEALs, Army Special Forces and Marine Expeditionary Units
    • Help the U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Department of State to protect the President, Vice President and other officials and dignitaries
    • Assist with security at large international events, such as sporting events or world summits

      Males and females are eligible to apply to become enlisted Navy EOD Technicians. No college degree is required, but a high degree of difficulty and satisfaction is standard. Training is tough and ongoing. You can apply for the Navy Challenge contract for EOD Technicians at any time during your first enlistment.

        • 36 months of obligated service upon completion of training
        • No non-judicial punishments or court martial convictions during the 12 months prior to application
        • Meet medical standards as specified in the NAVMED P-117
        • Meet minimum performance standards
        • Pass a hyperbaric pressure tolerance test
        • Be on board present command for 2 years
        • Be screened by an EOD Officer or E-6 or above Master EOD Technician

          NOTE: You should consult your physician or other health-care professional before starting any exercise regime or other fitness program to determine if it is right for your needs. This is particularly true if you (or your family) have a history of medical illnesses or ailments that could be made worse by a change in physical activity. Do not start a fitness program if your physician or health-care provider advises against it.
          General qualifications may vary depending upon whether you're currently serving, whether you've served before or whether you've never served before.
