The Center for Personal and Professional Development teaches Sailors to assess risk and apply critical thinking skills to make sound personal and professional decisions through a variety of programs and services.

CPPD's leadership training is delivered multiple times throughout a Sailor's career via command-delivered enlisted leadership training material and officer leadership courses in a schoolhouse setting, giving maritime professionals the tools to lead with courage, respect and trust, and mentor future leaders to do the same.

Additionally, CPPD's voluntary education program is a conduit for equipping Sailors with strong analytical skills, the ability to make informed decisions, and avenues to pursue their life-long educational and credentialing goals.

CPPD equips Sailors to think critically, act responsibly and lead proactively to meet ever changing global challenges as maritime professionals. As such, the Center is committed to developing Sailors strong in moral courage who exemplify Navy core values, and embody equal opportunity and personal and professional accountability.
