Recently I was walking around Bliss and noticed a 1LT wearing his NG Master recruiting badge. Officers are allowed to only wear the NG Master badge in recruiting as a permanent badge. Senior and basic are not authorized. It got me thinking... is the Army Instructor badge permanent? Like the AC recruiter badge? I tried to find guidance on this but came up with no luck. Have any former Instructors on here commissioned? Please drop knowledge. It does not apply to me whatsoever, I’m just curious.

Yes. It can actually be warned as a commissioned Officer. I know multiple officers here at Huachuca that served as BOLC instructors and where the instructor badge as company commanders (aka no longer in the position).

Does this apply to all levels? Including the basic instructor badge? If you could ask them about the regs I’d love to hear. Thanks for contributing to the post

This is another hallmark philosophical question of "just because you earned it, is it appropriate to wear it".

SGT(P) (Join to see) yes, all levels. Officers will likely not stay in an instuctor position long enough to qualify for a Master level, but they are eligible. I've only seen basic badges processed for officers. There are not many positions out there that apply to officers, outside of OES - BOLC/CCC

I wore Air Force Master Instructor Badge when I was an SFC teaching enlisted 98G (now 35P) at Goodfellow AFB. Later, I wore Army Master Instructor as a CWO when I was teaching 35G advanced class at Fort Huachuca.

Instructor badging is not restricted to only NCOA duties. They have since been expanded to AIT instructors as well as instructors for CCC and those officers are authorized to now wear the badge. I personally have done multiple evaluations for commissioned officers to receive their BAIB( Basic Army Instructor Badge).
