  • Be competitive.  Take the tough jobs early, and fight for the opportunity to lead Soldiers as a Company/Detachment Commander! Command is the pinnacle of what it means to be an officer and many of your peers shy away from it. Don't be that gal/guy! Knock out CCC as soon as you can to allow you to compete for certain Additional Professional Development Education (APDE) opportunities open to captains that are PME complete, which will make you more competitive as you go through your career. Take the time to complete a Master's Degree program before you have to start ILE, which is a graduate-level course.



  • Promotion to LTC: Enroll in, and complete Intermediate Level Education (ILE) Common Core (CC) as soon as you promote to Major.  Common core consists of three phases which can be completed via distance learning or via blocks of school house training.  Reserve Officers may also compete for the complete 10-month resident course at Ft. Leavenworth or the 15-week satellite resident courses at Fort Belvoir, Fort Lee, Fort Gordon, or Redstone Arsenal. Per DA Message, United States Army Reserve (USAR) Intermediate Level Education (ILE) Selection Board Changes 2019, each officer gets one chance to compete for resident ILE.

  2. Have the ATRRS operator submit a A1 application for the course you want, and ensure you follow up on the progress so that it gets approved at the HRC level.
  3. Keep your APFT, HT/WT, PHA, HIV, and Security Clearance current to receive a reservation. 
  4. If you get a reservation, you'll receive an email from Mr. Bradford at HRC with a worksheet attachment that you must complete and submit in order to receive your orders. If you are not 100% green you will NOT get a seat or have orders cut.
  • Stay competitive.  Take the tough jobs early and knock out your ILE. Seek out the opportunity to serve as a Battalion Executive Officer or S-3. Completing ILE-CC and the Advanced Operations Course will make you 100% CGSOC complete and will allow you to compete for Additional Professional Development Education (APDE) opportunities, increasing your chances at being competitive for O-6.  

 

 

 

 

  • Promotion to COL: Promotion to Colonel is the first truly competitive promotion board many reserve Officers will encounter. Only 30% of those boarded are selected for promotion. Enroll in, and complete, Intermediate Level Education (ILE) Advanced Operations Course (AOC) as soon as you complete ILE-CC.  ILE-AOC is a 52-week long distance learning course that is required for promotional consideration to O-6. Officers with certain Functional Areas, certain branches, or those that have completed certain special programs and fellowships receive AOC equivalency and do not have to complete AOC.  Click here to see if you qualify.
  • Enrolling in ILE AOC:
  1. Get with your ATRRS operator to check the availability of course seats for the dates you would like to attend.

    2. Junior Officer Career Cryptologic Program
    3. National Intelligence University MS in Strategic Intelligence
    4. Inter-Agency/Inter-Government Course
    5. Select Naval Post Graduate School Program 
  • Senior Service College:
    You should have completed ILE-CC and ILE-AOC in order to be eligible to compete for the opportunity to attend a resident SSC or distance Army War College.  Although not a requisite for promotion to Colonel, having SSC shows that you've put in the hard work, have been dedicated to your profession and are serious about your desire to promote to O-6 and lead at the BDE and higher level.
  • Stay competitive. Take the tough jobs early, and fight for the opportunity to once-again lead Soldiers as a Battalion Commander! Take command as early as possible, then allow yourself the ability to tackle broadening assignments and educational opportunities, especially SSC and any other APDE opportunities that may arise.  The harder you worked, the better your chances will be when the time comes to stand before the promotion board.
