MLA is a preparatory school for a cadet’s next promotion and leadership level. There are three schools from which to choose depending on your rank and experience. Airman Training School (ATS) – This school is for cadets who are brand new to the Civil Air Patrol cadet program and have not yet attended Encampment. Cadets will learn the foundations of Civil Air Patrol from drill and ceremonies to customs and courtesies and proper wear of the uniform. Non-Commissioned Officers School (NCOS) – This school is for cadets who have graduated from Encampment and are at least a C/SrA. NCOS is the next step in their leadership training. NCOS students will learn how to drill a flight, how to give a speech and teach classes, as well as train on how to lead and develop junior cadets. Basic Cadet Officers Course (BCOC) – This school is ideal for senior NCOs or junior officers. Ideally, BCOC students should have completed NCOS and be prepared to tackle the advanced content of indirect leadership. The emphasis is on Officership: how to mentor, how to plan, and how to lead cadets on a larger scale.
