About the Course

The Senior Enlisted Leadership Course (SELC) is focused on creating a pool of highly trained and motivated senior enlisted leaders better prepared for assignment to a Master Chief or Senior Chief Petty Officer billet including select high-profile assignments, such as Command Master Chief and Rating Force Master Chief.

Using the U.S. Coast Guard’s Leadership Development Framework, SELC develops critical leadership skills required of Senior Enlisted Leadership positions by addressing human resource and organizational policies, professional communications, the relationships between workforce and senior leadership, and concepts of strategy and organizational change management.
