TAKE THE FIRST STEP IN ARMY LEADERSHIP

Basic Leader Course (BLC), is the first leadership course Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs) attend. BLC is a month-long course that teaches Specialists and Corporals the basic skills to lead small groups of Soldiers. This course is hard hitting and intensive with emphasis on leadership skills and prepares Soldiers to advance to the rank of Sergeant.

The course topics include:

  • Leadership
  • Training Management
  • Map Reading
  • Land Navigation
  • Drill and Ceremony
  • Warfighting

This course is not MOS dependent. It is taught at an NCO Academy. BLC students live at the Academy for the duration of training that combines classroom instruction with practical application in the field.

Any Soldier who would like to move up in rank is required to take this course.
