Abstract : This monograph focuses on the recently established School of Advanced Leadership and Tactics' (SALT) development of Captains' Career Course (CCC) Curricula. Many researchers and scholars have written on the subject of education and offered insights on how to improve curricula based on various research methods. However, unlike previous monographs and theses, the focus of this monograph is less on the curricula and more on how the curricula were developed. Did the SALT deliberately and sufficiently develop current CCC curricula to enable captains to meet the demands of complex operating environments? By providing historical context on the development of Professional Military Education (PME) for captains and examining the process the SALT underwent to design current CCC curricula, this monograph argues that the SALT used a deliberate design process and has significantly improved the quality and efficacy of captains' PME in preparing them to meet the demands of complex operating environments.
