CPPD Expands Operational Stress Control Training
From Center for Personal and Professional Development Public Affairs
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) -- The Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) has expanded its operational stress control (OSC) training with eight new eLearning courses designed for Navy leaders.
The interactive courses are now available on Navy eLearning to petty officers, division officers, department heads and senior enlisted personnel.
"These web-based offerings are part of the Navy's effort to embed OSC concepts across all education and training programs," said Cmdr. George Michaels, CPPD's director of training. "This latest curriculum builds on the foundational courses already taught to more than 142,000 Sailors, family members and health care providers. While these first courses provided all Sailors with the insight and guidance they need to navigate stress from day-to-days operations, the latest content is aimed at leaders at all levels and can be used to support commands' specific learning needs."
The OSC course delivery is intended to reach Sailors and commands through a variety of platforms. Mixing delivery methods, such as instructor-led and online courses, helps address differing learning styles. In addition, regular reviews of existing courses keep the most up-to-date information available to the fleet, while development of additional lessons, such as those in the Leadership Core Continuum (LCC), build on the latest research and information available.
The newly developed enlisted OSC courses include: Petty Officer 3rd Class, CPPD-OSC-PO3-1.0; Petty Officer 2nd Class, CPPD-OSC-PO2-1.0; Petty Officer 1st Class, CPPD-OSC-PO1-1.0 g; and Chief Petty Officer, CPPD-OSC-CPO-1.0.
The OSC officer courses are all online courses and include: Division Officer, CPPD-OSC-DO-1.0; Department Head, CPPD-OSC-DH-1.0; Senior Enlisted, CPPD-OSC-SE-1.0; and Command Leadership, CPPD-OSC-CL-1.0.
