The Battle Staff Noncommissioned Officers Course is a branch-immaterial functional course for sergeants (E–5) through sergeants major (E-9) selected for staff assignments. The course provides technical and tactical training that is relevant to missions, duties, and responsibilities assigned to staff members in battalion and higher units. Graduates of the Battle Staff Noncommissioned Officers Course are identified by award of ASI 2S (additional skill identifier battle staff operations). Attendance is mandatory for those Soldiers assigned to positions coded ASI 2S. AA and RC commanders of Soldiers not assigned to ASI 2S positions may request course attendance on a space available basis.
