Federal or State School - Choice Your Path 

The mission of the Warrant Officer Candidate School is to educate, train, and inspire candidates so that each graduate is an officer who is a leader of character committed to doing what is right legally, morally, and ethically both on or off duty. An officer who is committed to professional growth through life-long learning; and who embraces the requirements of selfless service to subordinates, superiors, our Nation, and the Constitution. Training, Advising, and Counseling (TAC) Officers along with academic instructors prepare, coach, teach, mentor, train, advise plus counsel candidates, preparing them to assume responsibilities of a U.S. Army officer

Received Your Appointment, Now off to Skills Training

Next you will attend your follow on WO MOS training, Warrant Officer Basic Course. 

The purpose of the Warrant Officer Basic Course (WOBC) to certify warrant officers as
technically and tactically competent to serve as warrant officers in a designated specialty. WOBC is the first major test a newly appointed officer must pass to continue serving in the Army as a warrant officer, as W01 appointments and award of a Warrant Officer MOS are contingent upon successfully completing WOBC.

WOBC prepares newly appointed officers for their first duty assignments and all subsequent assignments as W01s/CW2s. This course is proponent (branch) developed and administered to all warrant officers upon completion of Warrant Officer Candidate School. The primary focus of WOBC is MOS specific, augmented with common-core subjects. The common-core subjects are designated by a Task Site Selection Board and monitored by the Warrant Officer Career College.
