Chapter Summary

The domain of the Non Commissioned Officer (NCO) is the context for teaching ethics at the Royal Military School (RMS) in Weert, in the South of Holland. This chapter summarises the domain of the NCO as such. It examines the role of ethics within that domain. Teaching ethics is directly linked to the process of growing to maturity of the trainee. The chapter examines the question how this concept is incorporated into the Basic Military Training Course for NCOs and cadet NCOs at the RMS. Subsequently, attention will be paid to the personal development of NCOs as part of the NCO career training. The chapter sets out possible situations that the NCO instructor may encounter in a training situation. In the Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA), "personal development" is defined as that element of education & training concerned with the further development of the attitude and personal traits of military personnel.
