Description 
The Chief Petty Officer Leader Development Course (CPOLDC) prepares chief petty officers (CPO) for increased leadership responsibilities in support of the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Navy Leader Development Framework.  
This course is designed to give the learner an introduction to self- awareness, the naval profession, and naval leadership and ethical decision making. The curriculum is very closely linked to the Navy Core Values and challenges learners to align their personal values to these values.
