Welcome to the King Roger I Military Academy where we train the men and women who serve in the elite ground forces of the Royal Manticoran Army. We offer a wide selection of courses in various subjects to prepare you for the duties you will face as the ground combat leader of tomorrow. Our curriculum is designed around the needs of the Royal Manticoran Army and is free of charge and available through E-Mail. The Staff of the KR1MA is constantly working to provide new and challenging course-ware to our students, so be sure to check back regularly for new courses to become available. Currently the Academy is home to several sub-schools:
The Enlisted Training Center
Here we teach the basics of being a Soldier in her Majesty's Army and both the Honorverse and the TRMN. The Enlisted School is the frame on which we build our future leaders.
Officer Training Center
Warrant Oficer's School
Where the other schools of the KR1MA emphasize combat skills and leadership, the Warrant Officer School focuses on developing the technical professionals through education, training and an emphasis on professional growth through life-long learning. Where Commissioned Officers specialize in combat leadership, the Royal Manticoran Army Warrant Officer is a technical leader as well as a subject matter expert in a chosen field of study.
The mission of the Officer’s School is to train officers and senior officers at key points in their careers and serves as the crucible from which are drawn the future ground-force commanders of the Royal Manticoran Army. The commissioned officers of her Majesty’s Army are grown and shaped by constant pressure to succeed and a tradition of doing more with less.
The Officer's School is divided into three distinct sections, these train the student in different aspects necessary to be successful in their careers as officers.
Staff Officer’s School
The Staff Officer’s School provides intermediate level education for the commissioned Officer corps of the Royal Manticoran Army and prepares RMA leaders for their roles as advisors to the combat commander. Graduates of this course have a thorough grounding in the conduct of ground combat at the operational-level.
The Royal Manticoran Army’s War College trains General Officers and focuses mainly on advanced management, leadership and strategy. Students of the War College will learn large unit tactics, military administration and advanced leadership.
The Branch/Army Occupational Specialty College
The schools under the Occupational Specialty College represent the core areas of study for all levels of the Royal Manticoran Army. Every Soldier’s first experience with their chosen occupational specialty begins in the halls of this school. Army Occupational Specialty (AOS) Designations The Royal Manticoran Army structures its job/specialty system by separating them into occupational fields or “Branches” in which no distinction is made between officers and enlisted soldiers. The Branches are numbered from 01 to 99 and include general categories under which individual jobs or Army Occupational Specialties (AOS) fall. Within each AOS there are multiple Additional Skill Identifiers or ASIs that represent specialized training within each field of study.
The RMA further distinguishes between Branches by defining them as either “Combat” or “Specialist” tracks. Combat branches are Officer led while Specialist branches are Warrant Officer led and Warrant Officers that distinguish themselves in combat can often find themselves commissioned and “rebranched” to the combat side of the house.
