SNCOs from the total force, active-duty Air Force, active-duty Space Force, selected Air Force Reserve (AFRES), and Air National Guard (ANG) may attend the in-resident AFSNCOA.  Selected Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and international military personnel also attend on a limited basis. Active-duty Air and Space Force personnel must have at least one year of retainability following graduation. The Air Force Military Personnel Center (AFPC) identifies and notifies active-duty Air Force and Space Force students for program attendance. Potential personnel should go through their Base Training Office for all questions regarding attendance, waivers and class dates. All students must meet their respective service standards.

The schoolhouse plays no part in active duty, guard or reserve student selection; contact your local Base Training Office if you would like to obtain a slot.  Reference AFI 36-2670, Total Force Development, for Active Duty Air Force, Air National Guard, and Air Force Reserve scheduling information.
