The Fleet Officer Candidate School, or FOCS, was a Royal Manticoran Naval Academy program designed to turn enlisted personnel or petty officers with many years of experience[1] into commissioned officers.

Generally only those with five or more years of experience were considered. Because they already had extensive experience of how the Navy worked, their point of view was different from that of those who had only gone through traditional officer training. (HH9)
