2—Using DL to Accelerate NCO Education Can Reduce Shortages at Grade-Level Bottlenecks Given the extent of training shortages among NCOs, we believe DL has a relatively high potential to reduce shortages by accelerating training. Moreover, with the new NCO Education System (NCOES) model projecting more individual training for NCOs, we think there is additional potential for DL’s support of BNCOC and ANCOC to increase in the future, helping to avert future training shortages. Keys to Realizing DL’s Potential in Reducing MOS Shortages Using DL in the manners described above offers significant potential for further reducing shortages of qualified personnel and for reducing the marginal cost of achieving those reductions.

5 weeks, or about 94 days. 75 = 16 days for the DL phase. 5) weeks longer, and about 16 days of that time will need to be devoted to DL study. If partial conversion of the other phases also proves possible, the time savings will be greater. DL Can Enhance Leader Stability and Availability 21 Once we completed the analysis of the Armor Captains Career Course, we extended the results to other courses where they could apply. DL CAN INCREASE TIME ON STATION FOR THE ARMOR OFFICER CAREER COURSE As noted above, we considered four options to modify the current practice: • Option 1: All resident requirements completed in TDY status; • Option 2: Resident requirements done as three separate TDYs; • Option 3: Mix of PCS and TDY-and-return, as determined based on Army requirements and officer preferences; • Option 4: Current PCS pattern with career course segment shortened by including a DL module.

From our second set of analyses, we conclude that converting portions of the Army’s resident professional development courses to DL can improve stability and reduce turbulence among officers and NCOs and thereby make them more available to their units. In most cases we considered, this applies to their families as well. The estimated increase in man-years available for unit duties is more than 900 working man-years,1 even after allowing time to participate in DL courses at home station. Our analysis points to retaining current patterns for officer career courses, with appropriate shortening of the residential advanced course phase as DL conversions make that possible.
