They are also expected to assist the crewmen in following proper protocol and behavior while on board ship. Petty Officers are expected to show up to a minimum of 4 RPs a month and lead at least one RP a month. The ranks in this class are Petty Officer Second Class (PO2) and Petty Officer First Class (PO1)

Chief Petty Officers - these ranks are for people who show initiative and run their department in the absence of the department officer. They are expected to maintain good order and discipline within their department, and lead RPs in the absence of the department Officer. Chiefs are expected to show up to a minimum of 4 RPs a month and lead at least one RP a month. The ranks in this class are Chief Petty Officer Second Class (CPO2) and Chief Petty Officer First Class (CPO1).
