Armed Forces Professional NCO School NCOS


The armed forces NCO school is the (educational institution) training center for professional NCOs of all troop categories of the Swiss armed forces.

During their two-year basic training, senior non-commissioned officers are equipped with the necessary knowledge in order to successfully lead and train within recruit schools and colleges.

Supplementary training courses prepare experienced NCOs for their new roles.

A large number of civilian and military personnel take part in further education courses every year at the Armed Forces Professional NCO School.

The school is also responsible for the international training within the framework of Roadmap interoperability for professional NCOs.
