AR 600-8-19 promotions states you have to complete all phases of BNCOC (or ALC as its known now) in order to be awarded points. The new promotions rules do not make mention of this or do not state this specifically it just states Soldiers who graduate from the course get x amount of points. Now I'm fighting Soldiers who are telling me they know Soldiers who received points for this. Before I go and start auditing all my SGTs in the unit I want to make sure there nothing out there that states otherwise. All it takes is for the S1 to add your ALC on your ERB and you get the points even if the Soldier has not completed all phases. It seems like the only guardian of said points is a well informed S1.
There is no change to the policy that requires all phases of NCOES be completed prior to points being awarded. Like you stated, it is too easy for S1s to update the ERB stating an NCOES course is complete. I’ve seen it done before when I was working in the S1, and unfortunately it happens because S1s are either not aware of the policy or just disregard it.
