Welcome to the Chief Petty Officer AcademyCPOA Logo


Congratulations on your orders to attend the Chief Petty Officer Academy! This welcome aboard information explains the purpose and scope of the academy, what you'll need to bring with you, and what to expect when you arrive. 

My staff and I are eager to join you on Monday morning for the start of what we believe is a very challenging program.  We will do everything in our power to make your experience memorable and rewarding.

Prepare to be engaged--you will find the Chiefs' Academy very different from any previous resident course experience. It is not simply another "C" school, but the beginning of the most critical transition in your career--advancement to Chief Petty Officer. Joining you will be elite representatives of the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, and select international maritime services.

Again, congratulations on your selection to attend the Chief Petty Officer Academy!

Altus Tendo,

William Lindsay , BMCM
School Chief, Chief Petty Officer Academy
