U.S. ARMY SERGEANTS MAJOR ACADEMY (USASMA)
Prepare To Become A Senior Leader
The U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy (USASMA) is acknowledged by military and civilian organizations as the world's premiere institution for the education of noncommissioned officers, is accredited as an academic Institution of Excellence, and is a direct reporting unit to Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC). The Academy is headed by a three-star level nominative command sergeant major and is supported by a world-class staff and faculty.
USASMA creates all curricula for each level of the Army noncommissioned officer education system (NCOES), and plays a key role in the education of all enlisted leaders from corporal to command sergeant major in the active Army, Army Reserve and Army National Guard. It also trains NCOs of our sister services and global allies. The Sergeants Major Course is 10 months long and prepares senior NCOs to lead at the highest levels of the Army and defense department.
The U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy was founded in July 1972 and graduated its first students in 1973. Since that time, USASMA has graduated more than 120,000 Soldiers from various NCOES courses, and continually adapts to meet the needs of our nation's defense.
