About SCSC


The Non-Commissioned Officers Academy (NCOA) was relocated from Kabamba, Mubende to Jinja to make room for the Uganda Military Academy, swapping locations with the School of Infantry which was renamed to the Uganda Military Academy. The NCOA was officially inaugurated in 2007 to strengthen the operational capacity of the Uganda People's Defence Forces, and is accredited by Uganda's Ministry of Education and Sports. The Academy equips soldiers with the necessary skills to command and administer troops, and provides career guidance for their service and beyond.
