The GCPME is excited to announce the release of ACSC Version 7.0. Designed with a more personalized approach to OPME, this version provides not only elective options, but also delivers a more modularized learning experience.
ACSC 7.0 offers you choice. It exchanges the “one-size-fits-all” paradigm for one that aims to provide options to tailor your learning to your individual interests and career goals. Called “focused studies,” these courses comprise 20% of your ACSC 7.0 journey—which ones you take are up to you. Focused studies are balanced by a suite of “foundational studies” designed to ensure that each of you receives a solid base in critical and creative thinking, leadership studies, strategy and security studies, airpower studies, and joint operations studies.
Although ACSC 7.0 contains a larger number of courses than ACSC 6.0, its curriculum is designed as smaller blocks of targeted instruction. Each individual excursion builds on the last experience, while also preparing you for the next. Shorter courses bring efficiencies to your learning, while providing more flexibility to your family-work balance.
In the future, the GCPME plans to expand the number of Focused Studies to give you the opportunity to further tailor your OPME journey.
