NCO Academy Hawaii

Welcome Letter

01 October 2015


We welcome you to the United States Army Noncommissioned Officer Academy, Hawaii, and congratulate you on your selection to attend the Basic Leader Course (BLC).

The Basic Leader Course (BLC) is Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) non-specific, leader-centric course that serves as the foundation of the NCO Education System (NCOES). The course will leverage technological and conventional face-to-face teaching and delivery methods to train private first class through sergeant to perform both tactical and garrison related team leader duties.

The curriculum will consist of three modules; leadership and management, training management, and war fighting. In addition, the leader’s performance will be evaluated against the curriculum using core leader competencies, broadly-skilled leader attributes, and battle command characteristics throughout the course.

Your performance will be evaluated under the policies and procedures outlined in AR 623-1. You must meet all academic course standards to graduate. You will receive an Academic Evaluation Report (AER), which will provide information regarding your accomplishments, potential, and limitations during your attendance at the NCOA. It is very important for you to be in good physical readiness condition and meet Army height and weight standards IAW AR 600-9, prior to attending BLC.

The NCO Corps is the “Back Bone of the Army”; we look forward to preparing you to take that next step of being part of our NCO Corps and a standard bearer for our Army.


NCOA, Hawaii
