AF EPME Mandatory Prerequisite Readings

The Noncommissioned Officer Academy (NCOA) is the second level of enlisted PME and prepares Technical Sergeants to be professional, war-fighting Airmen and Space Professionals who can manage and lead units in the employment of Air and Space power.  

The NCOA program is a substantial investment of resources, personnel, and facilities; all dedicated to providing you with the tools you need to lead people and manage resources. Senior leadership strongly supports this investment because of the importance they place on strengthening enlisted leadership.  The goals of the NCO Academy program are to provide the best academic program possible and to maintain our service's high military standards.
