Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy James Honea speaks with Chief Petty Officers assigned to Explosive Ordnance Disposal Group (EODGRU) 1 during an all-hands call at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, Oct. 4, 2022.

The Enlisted Leader Development (ELD) framework delivers a "character focused" learning continuum based on foundational courses delivered throughout an enlisted Sailor's career, SAILOR 360, self-study, on the job training (OJT) and feedback received from coaches, mentors, and advocates. 
 

Beginning in calendar year 2025, ILDC and ALDC will be a prerequisite to take the NWAE for E-6 and E-7.  CPO-LDC will be a prerequisite for advancement/selection to E-8 commencing with the Fiscal Year 2026 Selection Board.
