The Navy values educated leaders.

The SEA focuses on management, leadership, national security, and physical fitness.
The prerequisite required for USN/USNR E-7s is to show the date of completion for “The Chief Petty Officer Leader Development course (CPOLDC)” as noted in the CO Endorsement Letter.
