More About The NCOL CoE
The U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy was founded in July 1972, as a special preparation source for the Army’s senior enlisted leaders. Throughout its more than 46-year history, the Academy has taken on additional missions in the name of Noncommissioned Officer Professional Military Education. Today, with more than 24 missions under its roof, a need arose to better organize the institution to manage these missions and to refocus the Academy’s efforts towards the Sergeants Major Course. On June 22, The NCO Leadership Center of Excellence officially stood up and assumed the responsibilities of the NCO Professional Development System, becoming the premier institution driving innovative development for enlisted leaders, constantly focused on readiness. The USASMA is a part of that system and will continue to lead all efforts concerning the Sergeants Major Course assisting the NCOL CoE in developing, integrating and delivering education and training readiness. The NCOL CoE is responsible for developing, maintaining, teaching, and distributing five levels of Enlisted Professional Military Education – Introductory, Primary, Intermediate, Senior and Executive. Each level best prepares the soldier to fight and win in a complex world as adaptive and agile leaders and trusted professionals of Force 2025. Ultima – Designing The U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy
