MORE ABOUT THE TRAINING COURSE

This training course trains future leaders to be (Deputy) Group Commanders.

After completing this leadership training course (also known as the Basic Leader Course, abbreviated to BLC), the course participant will have expanded their knowledge of decision-making at group level.

The course participant knows what their role is within this process and how they can best support the group commander and deputise where needed in decision-making processes in their absence.

Course participants are given theory and the right tools for this and receive regular feedback from the instructors on how they communicate and give presentations.

Participants

Participants fulfil or will be fulfilling the position of (deputy) group commander.
