Army noncommissioned officer academies

Definition/Scope: (AR 350-1) The Noncommissioned officer academies (NCOAs) provide NCOES training at the appropriate skill level to prepare NCOs for future operational assignments. b. The MACOMs establish NCOAs in conjunction with Chief, National Guard Bureau (CNGB) (together with the CG, TRADOC, and State Adjutants General) and Chief, Army Reserve (CAR) (together with CG, FORSCOM; CG, TRADOC; and the DCS, G–3/5/7). The NCOAs will be established in accordance with CG, TRADOC and DCS, G–3/5/7 policies. c. The designation of NCOAs and the division of the training base into NCOAs geographic regions are discussed in appendix E. d. The USASMA accredits NCOAs and NCOES courses. Proponent schools assist in the accreditation process of the technical tract training for their respective BNCOCs and ANCOCs. Final accreditation is determined jointly by the USASMA and the responsible proponent school. e. Students attending NCOAs courses will be placed in a live–in learning environment during the resident portion of the course. Students will maintain high standards of military courtesy, conduct, and physical fitness. However, the level of discipline maintained by NCOAs must not interfere with the learning environment.
