Army NCO Professional Development Ribbon
The Army NCO Professional Development ribbon (NPDR, NCOPD) is a service ribbon issued by the U.S. Army for completion of any Non-Commissioned Officer Development Course. There are currently 4 approved courses, a 5th course was previously authorized, but is now obsolete. That course was the 1st Sergeants Course.
The approved courses are:
• Warrior Leader Course (WLC)
• Advanced Leaders Course
• Senior Leaders Course
• Sergeant's Major Course
When an additional course is completed, a bronze numeral is worn on the service ribbon to denote the number of courses completed. This is a ribbon only award and there is no federally approved corresponding medal for this award.
