Master Leader Course students, have no fear for we are working through this with you! As the senior leaders of the Army, we are best at this adaptation! We, III Corps and Fort Hood NCOA, are working hard at putting correct information out as we receive it!
Good morning teammates,
Due to COVID-19, our guidance is to deliver MLC via distance learning (DL) through BlackBoard. If you were enrolled in Class 06-20 resident course, you will lose that reservation BUT transferred (re-enrolled) into the 6 week DL. Please be on the lookout for your email of ATRRS cancellation and the re-enrollment to DL MLC.
III Corps and Fort Hood NCOA is always available for questions, as well as our 6 MLC Facilitators. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

In these troubled times WE WILL adapt and overcome because we are the backbone of the Army!
Good morning Teammates!
III Corps and Fort Hood NCOA has some exciting news!! In response to COVID-19 pandemic, Basic Leader Course (BLC) class 06-20 will be conducted via distance learning (DL) and known as the Emergency BLC (eBLC)!
The class is scheduled to start on 13 April 2020 and will end on 8 May 2020. The enrollment process remains the same; you will need to contact your Schools NCO to get enrolled with a COMPLETE schools packet. Friday (April 3) ATRRS will lock for the 10 day prior to course start date; we need all 320 packets by this date! All enrolled students will then receive a welcome email on how to “self enroll” in to the III Corps and Fort Hood NCOA BlackBoard page. We need the enrolled students to please be on the lookout for this email and self enroll ASAP so we have time to work any friction points!
Please feel free to send us a message if you have questions.

NCOL CoE discusses the launch of DLC VI, please read attached.

The NCO Leadership Center of Excellence announces the launch of the final installment of the Distributed Leader Course - DLC VI, which is now live and ready for enrollment. DLC VI educates senior 6C/6S and 7C/7S to perform senior-level duties at the nominative level positions throughout today’s operational environment (OE). This course provides the Army with self-aware, adaptive leaders of character and competence with the skills to shape and overcome the friction created by uncertainty and operate in an operational environment. DLC VI is a prerequisite for the Nominative Leader Course (NLC).
Watch the video to learn more about DLC VI. You can also visit the NCO Worldwide website at https://www.ncolcoeworldcampus.army.mil/Academics/Distributed-Leader-Course/.
