Resident program application is Sept. 2
FORT BELVOIR, Va. (TRADOC News Service, June 16, 2005) – Applicants have until Sept. 2 to apply for the Sustaining Base Leadership and Management resident program, Class 06-1, which runs Jan. 9-March 31, 2006.
“If you are a highly motivated GS-12 through -14 or equivalent payband who is interested in career progression and a higher level of responsibility, consider applying for the SBLM program,” said Mary Ann Hodges, AMSC’s marketing specialist. “GS-11s and -15s are welcome to apply by exception. Majors and lieutenant colonels, chief warrant officers, sergeants major or command sergeants major can apply through their branch managers.”
The program, which is centrally funded for most Army civilians, is designed to prepare leaders to manage the Army’s sustaining base – that is, anything that gets Soldiers and their supplies and equipment to the battlefield; sustains them while they are there; gets them home again after the conflict has ended; and ensures the self-sufficiency of their families while they are away.
“AMSC is unique in the Army school system,” Hodges said. “SBLM is the only mid-level course designed to develop leaders and managers across functional areas pertinent to the sustaining-base environment. It supports the Army Civilian Training, Education, and Development System, which provides progressive training plans for our career-managed programs.”
