Number one, max your correspondence points. You get 90 points in that area, and if you don’t have a max, stop telling people. Correspondence and online training might waste time, but it’s worth 90 points.
Number two, get college transcripts. A lot of colleges offer to evaluate your military experience for college credits. Most of them will do it for free if you take a course. Some of them charge a fee. But what’s the fee if they give you 30 college credits and you get 60 promotion points?
Three, improve your ACFT score. On April first, 2023, in just under 30 days, your ACFT will be worth promotion points, so I suggest you get your score up. Remember, the difference between a 540 and a 440 score is almost 40 points.
Number four, improve your military experience and move your weapon score. The difference between a 26 and a 36 is almost 75 points.
Number five, go to military schools. Airborne, aerosol, etc., all military training equals promotion points.
