Welcome to the SCSG Military Academy

Welcome to the South Carolina State Guard Military Academy. The Military Academy serves as the foundation for all Professional Military Education for the State Guard. Over the last two years our training requirements have seen a dramatic change. Lessons learned during the great flood of 2015 has redefined how we approach training. Two new courses that will be offered in 2017 to meet these demands are;  Limited Duty Officer Course (LDOC) and Staff Officer Course (STOC). LDOC is designed to meet the unique training needs of the Professional services. This course will be a mix of both military education and professional skills training. Staff Officer Course will be offered to those officers that serve in a staff support role at any level. The purpose of this course is to provide training to allow the staff officer to be more effective in their support position. All courses will be held at the McCrady Training Facility in Columbia SC.

The 2017 training cycle the Military Academy will be offering all courses. Open registration for the 2017 academy year will begin OCT2016.
