RMKS/1.  THIS NAVADMIN ANNOUNCES THE 39TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR OF JOINT 
PROFESSIONAL MILITARY EDUCATION (PME) FOR SENIOR LEADERS.  THE NAVAL WAR 
COLLEGE (NWC) FLEET SEMINAR PROGRAM (FSP) OFFERS NAVY AND JOINT INTERMEDIATE 
LEVEL PME THROUGH A SET OF THREE COURSES:  STRATEGY AND WAR (S&W), THEATER 
SECURITY DECISION MAKING (TSDM), AND JOINT MARITIME OPERATIONS (JMO).  EACH 
COURSE NORMALLY REQUIRES ONE ACADEMIC YEAR TO COMPLETE.  ALL THREE COURSES 
ARE NOT OFFERED SIMULTANEOUSLY AT ALL LOCATIONS.  THERE IS NO TUITION FEE AND 
COURSE MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED ON A LOAN BASIS AT NO COST TO THE STUDENTS.

2.  THE NWC FSP WILL BE OFFERED IN 19 REGIONAL LOCATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES

PER WEEK FOR APPROXIMATELY 34 WEEKS, COMMENCING IN EARLY SEPTEMBER 2014 AND

AS CREDIT FOR INTERMEDIATE LEVEL JOINT PROFESSIONAL MILITARY EDUCATION PHASE 
ONE (JPME-I).  THE FSP SEMINARS AT THE 19 LOCATIONS ARE CONDUCTED IN-STEP
