The Sergeants Major Course–Distance Learning (SMC-DL) educates senior enlisted leaders from our Army to be agile and adaptive senior noncommissioned officers through the study of leadership, the conduct of Unified Land Operations, and the application of joint, interagency, and multinational organizations in an era of persistent conflict. The SMC-DL prepares leaders to execute at all command levels throughout the Department of Defense. This Professional Military Education (PME) is provided by leveraging distance learning (DL) educational methods and technologies.
The Sergeants Major Course–Distance Learning provides tools to develop adaptability, critical reasoning, creative thinking, and decision-making skills. Soldiers are provided an education that teaches them to enhance their character, self-expression, and strengthen teamwork abilities. The course assists in the development of logical, practical and original reasoning abilities necessary for problem solving. Students analyze problems based on available information, arrive at logical solutions and decisions with reasonable speed, communicate reasoning and decision orally and in writing, and supervise to ensure proper execution. Intellectual honesty, integrity, and professional values and standards are highly stressed. The SMC-DL is 18-24 months long containing instructional hours delivered through 40 hours of senior enlisted joint professional military education, 338 hours of interactive multimedia instructional (distance learning) and 120 hours of resident instructions and covers all course content delivered in the resident Sergeants Major Course (SMC).
