Evolution of BMA Training

graduation

BMA provides military and academic training emphasizing on individual character building. The Academy primarily trains men and women to be commissioned into the Bangladesh Army. In addition, the Academy conducts orientation course for Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) officers, officer cadets of the Bangladesh Air Force and Navy, and Pre-Commission Training for professor/ teacher under-officers of Bangladesh National Cadet Corps (BNCC). Long Course cadets graduating from this Academy fall under Bangladesh University of Professionals (BUP) curriculum. The academy has the intention of fostering and inculcating those attributes in an Officer Cadet (OC) which will ensure his continuous and progressive development as a regular officer in the Bangladesh Army and developing future officers for the Bangladesh Army by training the Officer Cadets in a way that they can make decisions as and when required by the military profession.

Initially, being stationed at Cumilla Cantonment, BMA started with 1 year Short Service Commissioning Course due to acute crisis of officers. First batch of officers passed out on 11th January 1975 at Cumilla Cantt.  BMA shifted to Present Location, Bhatiary, Chattogram in January 1976. Later 2 year training curriculum started on 1979 for Regular Commissioning Courses, which continued up to 2016. From 2015, 3 years training curriculum for Regular Commissioning Course started in BMA and still continuing in that curriculum.
