SELC is an 80-hour, resident course designed to provide our senior enlisted members the leadership and management skills required by the high level, critical positions, including CMC and RFMC positions. The course specifically addresses professional written and verbal communications, concepts of strategy and organizational change management, organizational and human resource policies, and command relations.
The curriculum explores, in depth, the role and responsibilities of the senior enlisted member within the organization, focusing on the four leadership competencies of Leading Self, Leading Others, Leading Performance and Change, and Leading the Coast Guard, with primary emphasis placed on the latter two categories.
Students are required to complete pre-arrival assignments that include drafting a point paper and professional reading. The point paper will be the basis for your written and verbal communication work during the course. Students are required to work on assignments during and after class throughout the course.
Members requesting to attend must be in paygrade E-8 or E-9 and have previously completed the Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Academy or DOD equivalent. To apply, submit an ETR via direct access.
