The Senior Enlisted Leadership Course (SELC) is a six (6) week blended course designed to provide our senior enlisted members the leadership and management skills required by their high level, critical positions, including CMC and RFMC positions. The course specifically addresses professional verbal and written communications, concepts of strategy and organizational change management, organizational and human resource policies, and command relations.

The senior enlisted memberís roles and responsibilities within the organization are explored in depth through the lens of 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.
