Welcome to POLA!

Dear Cadet: 

Thank you for your interest in Petty Officer Leadership Academy. 

Please navigate this site to find important information about the training.  To apply for a quota please register via Magellan and look for course Leadership, Petty Officer Academy, (POLA) (NP-CA-2101).  The ONLY paperwork required is a TRNG001 and Digital Wellness form (open the PDF attachment on this web page and follow the instructions to complete).  All other prerequisites to apply for POLA appear in your Magellan Training Sign Up page.  Ensure you get all required signatures on your TRNG001; please read the site and search hard for the answer to your question before you ask for help.

Your quota request is dependent on availability but will NOT be set to "APPROVED" until you have uploaded the 2 required forms above.  

Cadets, as a young adult and an aspiring leader, it is your responsibility to take charge of your own USNSCC career. If you rely on your parents to do everything for you (e.g., iron your clothes, wake you up for school, send your emails for you), you will neither succeed at this training nor will you be a successful leader in your home unit or elsewhere. So, I charge you to demonstrate maturity, independence, and self-reliance during this application process and ensuring that it is done properly.

Parents, I am absolutely welcoming of your questions during this process. Please feel free to email me. My experienced staff and I welcome the opportunity to work with and mentor your children during this training. And please know that your child's safety, health, and well-being are our very top priority and override all other goals of this training.

Good luck. I look forward to seeing you on zoom.
