ALS is a six-week intensive course designed to help Airmen prepare to become non-commissioned officers and first-line supervisors to their Airmen. The curriculum focuses on communication and development of leadership abilities. Graduation from ALS is a requirement to be able to write performance reports on subordinates.

There are several awards an attendee can receive for their performance during the course. The Levitow Award is the highest award granted in each class. The basis of the award is overall performance and peer and instructor reviews. The Distinguished Graduate, Leadership and Academic Achievement Awards are all based on academic and leadership performance during the course.
