The 199th Regiment provides regionalized leadership, Noncommissioned Officer Education System (NCOES), Officer Candidate School (OCS), and general studies training for the Army National Guard (ARNG), the United States Army Reserve (USAR), and the Active Component (AC). The 199th Regiment plans and programs leadership training within its region based on requirements identified by the Individual Training Branch (ARNG-TRI) and the Army program for Individual Training (ARPRINT) and works in conjunction with its Proponents or Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in their respective areas of training.
The 199th Regiment, formerly known as the Louisiana Military Academy, has conducted the Officer Candidate School program since July 1960. In July 1976, the Non-Commissioned Officer Academy was established, which at the time taught Primary Non Commissioned Officer Course (PNOC), Basic Non Commissioned Officer Course (BNCOC), Advance Non Commissioned Officer Course (ANCOC), and the 1SG Course. Over the years, the 199th Leadership Regiment has developed and refined the different schoolhouses that are taught under its command. Today, the regiment has the following school houses under its flag: Officer Candidate School, Basic Leadership Course, 31B Military Police School, 12N Horizontal Engineer School, 12W Vertical Engineer School, and 88M Transportation School.
