Types of Ncoers

All right, there are seven types of NCRs. Seven. Could have just used one. Only us would have seven different types of… Let’s talk about them. Welcome back to the channel. My name is Aaron French. On today’s episode, here’s the drill. I’m going to be talking about the seven types of NCRs. Before we get in the episode, hit that subscribe, hit that follow button. For all you new subscribers and followers out there, I have over 80 episodes of content. Click that video tab on Instagram, you’ll see 80 episodes. And on YouTube, hit that video playlist. I got 80 of these just for you. Thanks for subscribing. Let’s get into the episode. For today’s episode, I want to do it a little fast, a little rapid, because NCOs can be boring. But also, it could be a very telling tale for you as an NCO or an officer if you know what you’re doing when it comes time to evaluate somebody’s performance and potential. It could tell you they don’t know what they’re doing. The first type of NCBR is an annual or an extended annual. An annual, just that is a one year performance rated NCO.

An extended annual could mean that you’re extending just past that annual 12 months because of maybe a school or TDY, something in between that caused that annual to shift a little bit to the right. The second type of NCODR is a change of rater. This and annual are the most common types of NCODRs that you’re going to see throughout your NCO and army career. This type of NCODR is mandatory for the rated NCO. When that rated NCO moves out from under the immediate supervisor in that rating chain. So when there’s a change, a change of platoon, a change of PCS, a change anywhere, that type of movement causes a change of rater. The third and fourth type of NCO are very similar. There’s a 60 day rater option and there’s a 60 day senior rater option. Now for these 60 day options, this happens when you fall under a rater, somebody rating you as an NCO for less than 90 days, but more than 59 days. You fall under this weird window. Yeah, it wasn’t long enough, but it wasn’t short enough for my days. That’s where the 60 day rater and senior rater options come into play.

Now, this option is just that. It’s an option for the rated NCO. They have the option to choose between this 60 day rater option or move it towards an annual. They have the option. The fifth type of NCO is a temporary duty. Now, this NCBR is very simple. If you’re TDY at a location for over 90 days and attached to a different organization, then you’ll get a temporary duty NCBR. That one’s pretty simple. The sixth type of NCBR is complete the record. Now, this type of NCBR is usually used for an NCO that’s about to go to an HQDA selection board or a StarM ajor board. But what most of us, NCOs and been in a long time know, complete the record is usually for an NCO that’s getting ready to retire, but it has multiple uses. Retirement is going to be great. I love my uniform. Let me tell you this. Now, the seventh and last type of NCO is a relief of cause. Now, this type of NCO is used to remove an NCO from a duty or an assignment per the decision of the chain of command. Now, these NCOs are usually an indication of some bad things, bad work performance, bad work behavior, personal conduct, NCO professionalism, all these things are things that will be reflected in this NCO and a relief of cause.

No, not good. So those are the seven types of NCOs. We got through them pretty fast. Pretty simple. They’re not hard to understand. Go out there and teach your NCOs, teach your officers this. It takes time. No one taught me them. I had to learn them. I only knew the seven types of NCRs because I went to the board and I had to rattle off all seven. I didn’t know what they meant. Now you do. Now, let’s get after that. Let’s go dominate the day. Yeah?
