The Global College of PME's Airman Leadership School Distance Learning (ALS DL) curriculum is designed to produce a more effective supervisor and leader by strengthening the ability to lead, follow, and manage in complex and ambiguous environments at the squadron, group, and wing level.
The ALS DL program consists of approximately sixty (60) contact hours. The program focuses on leadership skills required of first-line supervisors and reporting officials throughout the Air Force. ALS DL enhances the development of senior airmen by strengthening their knowledge about leadership, followership, and management while broadening their understanding of the missions and cultures of the Air Force. It does so with a focus on leadership at the wing-level, leading people, strategies for problem solving, and cultural foundations.
The ALS DL program includes a mix of self-paced courses and a collaborative capstone course. The program is designed to provide professional development to enlisted military members at a specific and critical point in their career. The program provides students with peer-to-peer interaction and collaboration opportunities. Self-paced courses can be taken in any order, but must all be completed prior to enrolling in the collaborative capstone course.
