NLEAD is responsible for the education and development of Naval Special Warfare (NSW) operators through professional military education, critical skills training, and career management.
Approved by Naval Education and Training Command and Naval Special Warfare Command, the name change defines the command’s critical mission for the force and distinguishes it from the similarly named Naval Special Warfare Center. Naval Special Warfare values cognitive, character and leadership development as it provides a competitive edge against adversaries in an uncertain and challenging geo-political environment.
“Updating our command’s name may seem like a small change, but it is one of many in the evolution of NSW’s unwavering commitment to the professionalization and development of our team,” said Capt. Ryan Shann, commanding officer, NLEAD.
NLEAD provides professional military education through leadership milestone courses, such a platoon and troop leader courses, and leverages technology and digital content to share professional development information with the force. NLEAD’s education programs not only offer critical skills training but also online education from top academic institutions and counseling for those pursuing academic certificates, degrees, and other scholarship opportunities.
