SENIOR ENLISTED LEADERS.//

RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the 40th consecutive year of Joint 
Professional Military Education (JPME) for Senior Leaders.  The Naval War 
College (NWC) Fleet Seminar Program (FSP) offers 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), and is offered 
at multiple locations in keeping with Chief of Naval Personnel*s efforts to 
foster a deliberate and flexible learning environment.  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 
for academic year 2015-2016.  Planned locations and courses are:

    a.  Annapolis, MD (S&W, TSDM, and JMO)
    b.  Bangor, WA (S&W)
    c.  Dahlgren, VA (S&W)
    d.  Everett, WA (JMO)
    e.  Fort Worth, TX (JMO)
    f.  Great Lakes, IL (S&W)
    g.  Jacksonville, FL (TSDM and JMO)
    h.  Mayport, FL (S&W)
    i.  Millington, TN (TSDM)
    j.  New Orleans, LA (S&W)
    k.  Newport, RI (S&W, TSDM, and JMO)
    l.  Norfolk, VA (S&W, TSDM, and JMO)
    m.  Patuxent River, MD (S&W)
    n.  Pearl Harbor, HI (S&W, TSDM, and JMO)
    o.  Pensacola, FL (Whiting Field) (TSDM)
    p.  Port Hueneme, CA (JMO)
    q.  San Diego, CA (S&W, TSDM, and JMO)
    r.  Washington, DC (S&W, TSDM, and JMO)
    s.  Whidbey Island, WA (TSDM)

3.  FSP courses are similar in content and delivery methodology to the 
intermediate level program of study offered by the resident College of Naval 
Command and Staff in Newport, RI.  Seminars for each course meet one evening 
per week for approximately 34 weeks, commencing in early September 2015 and 
ending in May 2016.  Led by NWC adjunct faculty members, and supported by 
visiting NWC faculty, these courses replicate both the content and atmosphere 
of the resident courses 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 intermediate level Joint Professional Military Education Phase 
One (JPME-I).  The FSP seminars at the 19 locations are conducted in-step 
with each other so it is possible for a student who is transferring to, or 
assigned temporary additional duty at another seminar location to attend 
class at that location.

4.  NWC accepts program applications from commissioned officers (active and 
reserve), selected command master chiefs, and civilian employees of the 
federal government, subject to the following eligibility requirements
