Warrant Officer Candidate School


Highly Specialized, Highly Committed

Warrant officers are highly specialized experts and trainers in their career fields. By gaining progressive levels of expertise and leadership, these leaders provide valuable guidance to commanders and organizations in their specialty. Warrant officers remain single-specialty officers with career tracks that progress within their field, unlike their Commissioned officer counterparts who focus on increased levels of command and staff duty positions.

Individuals who are accepted for Warrant Officer Candidate School (WOCS) will first attend the nine-week Basic Combat Training (BCT) course as an enlisted Soldier. Following completion of BCT, they will attend WOCS.

Those who currently serve in the military and maintain a superior level of technical/tactical expertise are also encouraged to learn more by contacting the Warrant Officer Recruiting Team.
