: What is the specific meaning of the phrase "time in grade"? Thanks.
: In the Navy, when a sailor has sufficent time in grade and can pass service wide exams, he/she is then eligible for promotion and more responsibility. Time in grade refers to time spent at a certain pay grade or rank. At least that's how American squids used to refer to it.
