tabHistory of the Vosler NCO Academy 
From the inception of the then HQ Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) NCO PME Center, the goal of the school has been to ensure "precision leadership for the warrior Airman." The need for this institution was granted in 1983 by Gen. James V. Hartinger, AFSPC/CC, and in May 1984 Chief Master Sgt. Lincoln D. Jeffus became the first commandant of the AFSPC NCO Professional Military Education (PME) Center. With only two classrooms and a staff of five personnel, the first NCO Leadership School (NCOLS) graduated 31 students in April 1985. That year, eight classes were held, divided among the NCO Preparatory Course (NCOPC), NCO Leadership School (NCOLS), and NCO Academy (NCOA).
