ADACCC Air Defense Artillery Captains Career Course
"30th Air Defense Artillery"
On behalf of the Command team and all supporting & teaching staff of 2-6 ADA, we would like to formally welcome you to the ADA Captain’s Career Course (CCC)! Please take a minute to familiarize yourself with our vision, learning priorities, and initial in-processing instructions. This will facilitate your professional development & growth while attending CCC.
ADA CCC will graduate technically & tactically proficient Leaders across a broad range of Air Defense weapon systems capable of employing critical & creative thinking in conjunction with doctrinal foundations, throughout the Military Decision Making Process (MDMP). The intent is to produce synchronized orders that enable Commanders at all levels to effectively exercise mission command in a complex & dynamic operational environment. Students are actively encouraged to seek out all learning opportunities leveraging individual and class experiences collectively to grow and evolve throughout the course.
Everybody learns differently; both small and large group learning are to be conducted in a respectful and courteous manner and in a collaborative environment. As Leaders, students are expected to set the example for those around them and this starts with participation. You will take the GRE while at ADA CCC- please plan accordingly!!
All academic awards are linked to physical fitness and military bearing. Awards are conditional and will only be issued to those who demonstrate holistic excellence. As we await full implementation of the ACFT, your last APFT score remains the score of record. You can expect to participate in three diagnostic ACFTs as a student in ADA CCC.
Integrity and loyalty are key attributes that both cadre and the chain of command look for in students. All cadre exist to guide students through personal & professional issues to ensure the maintenance of a positive environment which fosters growth. Unprofessionalism will not be tolerated and may result in a negative course evaluation and, or removal from the course.
ADA CCC is a stressful and demanding course. It is encouraged for all students to work together to ensure no one is left behind. Student working groups and study groups are encouraged within the bounds of the academic guidelines established in the ISAP.
Integrity and loyalty are key attributes that both cadre and the chain of command look for in students. All cadre exist to guide students through personal & professional issues to ensure the maintenance of a positive environment which fosters growth. Unprofessionalism will not be tolerated and may result in a negative course evaluation and/or removal from the course.
Although students will be subject to the unit and course mentorship programs, it is an individual responsibility to participate in these events. Unwillingness to participate will negatively affect junior officers and inhibits the ability to learn.
All ADA CCC instruction and content is based around doctrinal foundations. Individual experiences are invaluable and a key element of the classroom environment. However, all MDMP and tactical training will be grounded in doctrine.
Lastly, ADA CCC Students are the custodians of the Profession of Arms; they are the future Leader of the US Army and are expected to conduct themselves accordingly. Like all training, cadre aim to prepare students to become agile and adaptive Leaders, capable of operating in a complex environments as part of the staff or command team.
Once you have orders to attend CCC, do not hesitate to reach out to the course manager listed below if you have any questions. You can expect to receive a course welcome letter approximately 45 days before your class start date. While you’re here, please take a moment to review the “In-Processing Instructions” and “GRE Self-Study Resources” tabs!

Although this move is a PCS, you will be in student status while here at Fort Sill. There are no formal post in-processing requirements. Do NOT report to Building 4700 (the Fort Sill Welcome Center); housing stamps are no longer required for Permissive TDY/house hunting.
Most students report in the day prior to the start of their class. If this applies to you, you will go to the Staff Duty desk at the 30th ADA Brigade Headquarters (Building 1611, Randolph Road), where the Staff Duty NCO will sign you in on your DA31. Instructions for the first day of class will be included in your welcome letter. Please be aware that you must bring 3x copies of your orders and a copy of your completed DA31 to the first day of class.
If you are reporting early, please follow the steps outlined in your class welcome letter.
Please ensure you contact the TRICARE service center and verify you are enrolled in the correct region. Fort Sill falls under TRICARE East.
You will conduct in-processing during the first week of the course. The only requirements you will need to take care of on your own is the scheduling of your household goods. Please try to have them delivered prior to the start of the course, if at all possible—work specific situations through your Small Group Instructor.
You will conduct a Height and Weight screening during the first month of the course. Per AR 350-6, you must pass Height and Weight to remain in the course. Failure to do so may result in a referred DA1059 and a mandatory 180 day waiting period before re-enrollment. Your last APFT remains your most recent test of record. As we await full implementation of the ACFT, you can expect to take three diagnostic ACFTs. Class beginning on or after 01 October 2022 will take the ACFT for record.
If possible, please make every effort to obtain a PKI token for SIPR access prior to coming to the course—it is much easier to enable SIPR access if you already have a PKI token.
Prior to departure from your losing unit, please ensure that you have a government travel card, that it will not expire during the course, and that you are released from your previous unit's DTS & Citibank hierarchy. Taking care of these issues now will save you trouble later.
Travel safe, and we look forward to your attendance in the course.
