Mission
Provide challenging academic and performance based assessments in a learner-centric environment with the goal of developing critical and creative thinkers capable of solving problems and building teams to win decisively in a complex world.

Course Description
The Basic Leader Course is the first step in the Noncommissioned Officer Education System and represents a Soldiers’ first return to formal schooling after Advanced Individual Training (AIT). BLC is geared toward Soldiers preparing for promotion to sergeant. The Fort Bliss NCO Academy’s BLC is a non-MOS specific leadership course that provides Soldiers with the basic tools to do what is expected of them as noncommissioned officers. Students are provided opportunities to practice and demonstrate what they are taught in a fast-paced and challenging atmosphere. They are placed in leadership positions and evaluated on their leadership abilities.

NLT 01 May 21, CoEs, Centers and Schools ensure that, prerequisites for attendance, graduation requirements, and all course material align with and adhere to current Army policies for ACFT implementation, record physical fitness data (APFT), and HT/WT requirements. Ensure all Soldiers (including ATRRS slotted, walk-ons, COMPO-1, COMPO-2, and COMPO-3) submit an enrollment packet to the NCOA Chief of Training no later than two weeks before the report date.
