To train lower military unit leaders on tactical techniques and operational procedures in order to enable them effectively manage, organize, administer, coordinate and command basic troop compositions, taking care of their well-being and maintaining good standards of their resources.
The Non-commissioned Officersâ€™ Corp is instrumental to effective Command, Control and Administration of the army and that is why it is often referred to as the back bone of the force.
It is therefore imperative that this force component is kept vibrant to function effectively in support of the force. Training is the basic requirement for building the individual and collective capacities of the Corp and NCOA performs this task.
