What are some good MCIs to take once you’ve been promoted to Corporal?

I took all the ones that had something to do with my job most don’t require a test and they look good on paper because your trying to be more proficient in your mos as far as leadership you should have taken all of those as a lance already
Sgt (Join to see) I do not know what is available. As a new NCO, I would take any course that deal with leadership. Listen and observe the best NCO's and SNCO's so that you can emulate their behavior. Being a good NCO will take time and you will make mistakes along the way. Good luck.
Take as many as you can it only helps you become more diverse and enables you to understand how important each job within the service truly is. Find a superior that will help you get to where you want to be. Avoid those that follow the montra “do as I say not as I do” those brothers and sisters of yours are the ones to keep close. They can only help you achieve whatever goals you have set for yourself because they’re willing to take the time to teach you that we are all in this together. I was fortunate enough to have a Gunny, several Ssgt’s and sgt’s that pushed me to become better by learning as much as possible but at the same time weren’t to good to get down in the dirt with the rest of us. That only gained my respect which in turn, allowed me to trust them. And they always told me that whatever your goals are that you want to achieve? You can never stop learning. Find every MCI you can possibly can & never stop learning, even if that may be from your mistakes. Thank you for your service
