The Navy Leadership Continuum is a career-long continuum of Navy leader development, from recruitment to retirement. A total of eight Leadership Training Courses for officer and enlisted personnel have been developed to form the cornerstone of that continuum. These progressive and sequential courses are all two weeks with the exception of the nine-week senior enlisted academy. Four major themes are the foundation of all the courses: values; responsibility, authority, and accountability of leadership; unity of command, Navy and services and risk management/ continuous improvement. The formal leadership training will be periodically reinforced with "booster shots" in warfare/specialty pipeline training, at annual all hands training, and during development/ professional assignments. Current education and training programs that include leadership modules are being brought into alignment with the continuum themes to ensure consistency and eliminate redundant or conflicting training.
