Non Commissioned Officers Academy (NCOA), located in Jinja was shifted from Kabamba, Mubende, to give space for Uganda Military Academy. It interchanged locations with School of Infantry that was named Uganda Military Academy.
NCOA provides the basis on which the NCO core can be built. It provides the soldiers with the fundamentals to command, administer troops under their command, and career guidance to enable them sustain themselves and their families during the conduct of their duties and after service. By having the right mental attitude, working hard, and paying attention to detail, students find their time at the Academy enjoyable and rewarding.
