RMKS/1.  THE NAVAL WAR COLLEGE (NWC) FLEET SEMINAR PROGRAM WILL BE 
OFFERED IN 20 REGIONAL LOCATIONS FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2009-2010.
PLANNED LOCATIONS ARE:  WASHINGTON, DC; ANNAPOLIS, MD; BANGOR, WA;

2.  THE FLEET SEMINAR PROGRAM DELIVERS NAVY AND JOINT INTERMEDIATE 
LEVEL PROFESSIONAL MILITARY EDUCATION THROUGH A SET OF THREE
COURSES:  STRATEGY AND WAR, NATIONAL SECURITY DECISION MAKING, AND 
JOINT MARITIME OPERATIONS.  EACH COURSE NORMALLY REQUIRES ONE ACADEMIC 
YEAR TO COMPLETE.  IT IS AVAILABLE TO OFFICERS, SELECTED COMMAND MASTER 
CHIEFS (CMDCM), AND SELECTED DEFENSE DEPARTMENT CIVILIANS.  THERE IS NO 
TUITION FEE, AND COURSE MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED ON A LOAN BASIS.

3.  FLEET SEMINAR PROGRAM COURSES ARE SIMILAR IN CONTENT AND 
METHODOLOGY TO THE INTERMEDIATE PROGRAM OF STUDY OFFERED BY THE 
RESIDENT COLLEGE OF NAVAL COMMAND AND STAFF PROGRAM IN NEWPORT, RI.
SEMINARS FOR EACH COURSE MEET ONE EVENING PER WEEK FOR APPROXIMATELY
35 WEEKS, COMMENCING IN EARLY SEPTEMBER 2009 AND ENDING IN MAY 2010.
LED BY NWC ADJUNCT FACULTY MEMBERS, AND SUPPORTED BY VISITING NWC 
FACULTY, THESE COURSES REPLICATE BOTH THE CONTENT AND ATMOSPHERE OF THE 
RESIDENT COURSE OF STUDY.  SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF ALL THREE COURSES 
RESULTS IN THE AWARD OF A COLLEGE OF NAVAL COMMAND AND STAFF DIPLOMA, 
AS WELL AS CREDIT FOR JOINT PROFESSIONAL MILITARY EDUCATION
(JPME) PHASE I.  SINCE NWC SPONSORS SEMINARS AT VARIOUS LOCATIONS 
THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES, IT IS POSSIBLE FOR A STUDENT WHO IS

ANOTHER LOCATION.
