Highly qualified candidates can apply to become Utah Army National Guard warrant officers. These specialized officers are technical and tactical experts in their field. If you have prior service, or work in an extremely technical field like computer science or information technology, the path of Warrant Officer could be for you.
Warrant Officers make up the technical foundation of the U.S. Army. Throughout their careers, they specialize in a technical area like intelligence, aviation, or military police. Although they make up less than three percent of total Army strength, Warrant Officers have a great job responsibility that includes training Soldiers, organizing and advising on missions, and advancing within their career specialties.
Those interested in becoming Warrant Officers must be selected for Warrant Officer Candidate School (WOCS), which is generally held in Fort Rucker, Alabama. Technical specialty applicants must be Staff Sergeant/E-6 or higher to be considered for selection. There is no minimum grade requirement for aviation applicants.
The school is designed to assess candidates’ potential for appointment as Warrant Officers and prepare them for service in 16 of the Army’s 17 branches (the Special Operations branch trains and appoints its own Warrant Officers). The course also focuses on training similar to Officer Candidates School (OCS), and provides candidates a foundation of leadership skills that will eventually help them manage others.
After a candidate completes WOCS, he or she is appointed as a Warrant Officer (WO1). Graduates are then sent to their specific U.S. Army branches, where they receive more focused technical training in their specialties.
Do you have what it takes to become a Warrant Officer? Applicants for the Warrant Officer Candidate School and Warrant Officer Flight Training program must:
April 1st and October 1st EACH year is when your Flight Interview Board Packet and FEDREC Packet are due by 1600hrs. If packet is missing anything you need to submit the following board. Highly advisable to submit your packet 4 weeks prior for a quality control check by the WOSM that all items are good for submittal.
Approximately 3-6 weeks later the AV selection board will notify the potential candidates that they have selected for an in-person interview.
If you are selected at the in-person AV interview then you will attend the final board which is a Federal Recognition Board which is lead by the Senior Active Duty Army Advisor and 2 other Senior Warrant Officers

Warrant Officer pilots fly some of the most exciting, technologically-advanced aircraft in the world. If you have dreamed of becoming an Army helicopter pilot, fixed-wing aircraft pilot, or unmanned aerial vehicle operator, Warrant Officer Flight School is where you can earn your wings.
The road to becoming an U.S. Army pilot won’t be easy. The Warrant Officer Flight Training (WOFT) program is necessarily designed to be rigorous and stressful, as you could be responsible for the lives of your crew in a combat situation.
After candidates have completed the initial flight training course, they move on to specialized training on the Army's fleet of rotary aircraft: the UH-60 Black Hawk, the CH-47 Chinook, and the AH-64A Apache helicopters.
