ADVANCED LEADER COURSE (ALC)
Lead Soldiers Within Your Occupational Specialty
This course focuses on leadership and technical skills required to prepare Soldiers selected for promotion to staff sergeant to effectively lead squad/platoon size units. The ALC consists of a both a 90-day highly facilitated web-based common core program and a branch-specific resident phase designed for the Soldiers military occupation specialty.
The majority of the resident phases are approximately eight weeks in length with high-density military occupational specialties (MOS) ALCs being provided to Soldiers at home station using Mobile Training Teams. High density MOS are those that experience higher than average deployment rotation in support of contingency operations.
