Prerequisites:A Signal Warrant Officer Basic Course and the Action Officer Development Course (Army Correspondence Course number 131 P00) must be completed prior to enrollment in the Warrant Officer Advanced Course.

PURPOSE:

To provide selected Active Army (AA) and Reserve Component (RC) Military Occupation Specialties (MOS) 255A warrant officers with advanced technical training to perform critical MOS individual skill level 2 tasks in preparation to serve in senior level network management, staff, and supervisory positions.

COURSE SCOPE:

This course provides instruction and allows practical exercises in Internet Protocol (IP) Switched Networks, IP Telephony, Host Based Security System (HBSS), System Security, Advance Database Management, Enterprise Management, Mobile Application, Thin Client Architecture Project Management, Information Technology (IT) Service Management, Storage Network Technologies, Advance Virtualization and Advance Digital Tactical Operations (DTOC). This course also provides advanced instruction on directed and mandated subjects to include Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR), Personnel Recovery (PR), Military History, Every Soldier is a Sensor (ES2), Cultural Awareness (CA), Improvised Explosive Device - Defeat (IED-Defeat), Operations Security (OPSEC), and Institutional Resilience Training. A capstone training event is conducted at the end of the course to evaluate students' ability to perform MOS skill level critical tasks in a simulated field environment.

SPECIAL INFORMATION:

This is a two-phase Professional Military Education (PME) MEL Code 6 course attended by both Active Army (AA) and Reserve Component (RC) Soldiers. Both phases of the course must be completed in sequence. However, AA and RC attendance requirements are different:


a. The AA students must enroll, attend, and complete both phases of the course in one continuous school attendance period or course iteration.


b. The RC students may enroll, attend, and complete one or both phases in one or more school attendance periods, or course iterations. However, the course phases must be completed in sequential order, and the minimum RC attendance period is one complete phase per attendance period or course iteration. This approach will allow RC students an opportunity to return to home station between phases, and accommodates the RC training cycle to obtain MEL Code 6 certification within the required two-year timeline.

PHASES:

Phases 1: Provides instruction and practical exercises in Internet Protocol Switched Networks, Advance Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Host Based Security System (HBSS), System Security, Installing and Managing Database Server, Enterprise Management Software, Mobile Application Development and Thin Client Architecture.
