The Airman Leadership School Distance Learning (ALS DL) program consists of approximately 60 contact hours. The program focuses on leadership skills required of 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 the Wing/AF 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
