Army Directive 2016-19 (Retaining a Quality Noncommissioned Officer Corps) ...Issued: 26 May 2016
NOTE: Please download and read the complete Army Directive at the bottom of this page to get all of the information.
The policies in this directive revise the Noncommissioned Officer (NCO) Corps' developmental
timelines and will ensure that the NCOs with the most potential have an avenue for continued service.
By retaining those NCOs who have exhibited the highest caliber attributes expected of a professional,
all-volunteer force, our professional NCO Corps will remain the "backbone" of our great army.
The policies in this directive apply to Soldiers serving in the Regular Army (RA), Army National Guard
(ARNG)/Army National Guard of the United States (ARNGUS), and U.S. Army Reserve (USAR),
including NCOs serving under the AGR Program.
The following policy changes are approved for implementation as indicated:
a. Retention Control Points (RCPs) (apply to RA and USAR/ARNGUS Soldiers serving under the
AGR program in a Title 10 status). Soldiers may perform service on active duty (provided they are not
barred from continued service or otherwise separated) up to the following RCPs or age 60, whichever
occurs first. This includes all senior NCOs selected by a Headquarters, Department of the Army
centralized promotion board convened after the date of this directive.
Soldiers who were 40 years of age or older on the date of their enlistment may exceed age 60 to
complete the minimum time for regular or non-regular retirement for their respective component.
Qualitative Management Program (RA and USAR AGR only).
Effective immediately, NCOs who are not promoted to the next grade because of their failure to
complete the appropriate level of NCO Education System training for the next higher grade are
subject to the denial of continued service through the QMP process (AR 635-200, Chapter 19).
NCOs in the following categories are eligible for the Qualitative Management Program:
(1 ) NCOs in the rank of staff sergeant with 36 months time in grade who have not graduated from
the Advanced Leaders Course, or
(2) NCOs in the rank of sergeant first class with 36 months time in grade who have not graduated
from the Senior Leaders Course
