Welcome to Joint Officer Management (JOM)



Mission Statement: Texas Military Department (TMD) establishes the Joint Officer Management program to track Texas National Guard officers who are systematically and progressively developed through their career in joint matters to ensure senior field grade officers have the required experience to be fully joint qualified.

Purpose: The purpose of establishing the Joint Qualified Officer designation is to
ensure the progressive, career-long development of officers in joint matters and to ensure that officers serving as general officers have the requisite experience and education to be highly proficient in joint matters.

Overview: There are four levels of joint qualification (see Figure below). JOM focuses on the first three. Level IV applies only to general officers — contact GOMO/COMO for more information. Each level requires a certain amount of experience, which equates to points, in addition to the appropriate level of Joint Primary Military Education (JPME).
