FA WOBC Field Artillery Warrant Officer Basic Course
"428th Field Artillery Brigade"
We would like to congratulate you on being selected for attendance to the Field Artillery Warrant Officer Basic Course (WOBC) or Warrant Officer Advance course (WOAC) at Fort Sill, Okla. During your attendance, you will participate in in-depth discussions on such topics as problem solving, computer enhanced technology, counterfire operations, intelligence preparation of the battle field, Army targeting and the military decision making process (MDMP)- Share your knowledge, lessons learned, and tactics, techniques, and procedures within a small group environment.
The course is designed as a small group-learning environment, which allows the student to interact during the learning process. This relationship results in a geometric payoff in learning and retention that comes from the student's participation and experiences. Your participation in the small-group learning environment helps develop one another's ideas, and allows your class to reach solutions to particular issues that otherwise would not have been possible. Your small group leader will create an environment where learning and knowledge sharing can take place for the benefit of the students. The instructional staff will facilitate the training process, as it occurs to help the group understand the process, function smoothly, and achieve its goals.
All students must have a secret security clearance to attend the course. We will verify your security clearance in JPAS prior to your arrival. Additionally you will need a active SIPR token and AKO-S account prior to arrival.
