Battalion Commander Assessment Program

The Army has implemented a new requirement for officers who compete for battalion command to participate in the Battalion Commander Assessment Program to assess each officer’s fitness for command and strategic leadership potential. The Battalion Commander Assessment Program is a four-day event that assesses officers who are selected by the centralized selection board. Participants will undergo a series of cognitive, non-cognitive, and physical assessments in addition to a panel interview with senior Army officers. Selection for battalion command level positions is one of the most important decisions the Army makes. The intent of these assessments is to expand the Army’s understanding of each officer’s talents, assess their strategic potential, and make data-informed decisions.
