All Arms Standard NCO Course and Eligibility for the NCO Promotion Competition 2012

 PDFORRA have been informed that briefings have been given on the 2012 NCO promotion Competition which suggest that those who have completed the All Arms Standard NCO Course are not eligible for the competition. This position is incorrect.

Completion of the All Arms Standard NCO Course or its equivalent does meet the eligibility criteria for promotion to Sergeant rank as outlined in the NCO Promotion Agreement. Personnel may be interviewed for promotion without having completed the Corps Standard NCO module.

In the absence of a specific corps Standard NCO module for personnel of the Medical Corps and Air Corps, the All Arms Standard NCO Course is the qualifying course for promotion within those Corps at present. The filling of vacancies within the aforementioned Corps will then be subject to personnel meeting the essential qualification criteria laid down in Annex XYZ of the promotion agreement.
