Abstract : The School of Advanced Leadership and Tactics (SALT) is developing the new Captains level educational model, known as the Mid-Grade Learning Continuum for 2015 (MLC 2015), based on TRADOC's Army Learning Concept for 2015 (ALC 2015). Since 2004, the UK Army has utilized an education model for its Captains known as the Review of Officer Career Courses (ROCC). The major similarities between ROCC and MLC 2015 are: (1) distributed or distance learning, (2) modular design, and (3) educational responsibilities for the operational chain of command. The research question of this thesis is: Based on the UK Army's experience with Captains education since 2004, what lessons learned will assist SALT in its development and implementation of TRADOC's new educational model for US Army Captains? This study uses a unique survey instrument to determine UK Officers' perceptions of the ROCC model based on their experiences. This unique survey instrument was administered to 175 UK Majors who experienced Captains education within the ROCC model. This study analyzed and summarized the participants' perceptions of the ROCC model into five major findings and then made nine recommendations for Branch Commandants, SALT, CAC, and TRADOC to incorporate in the development and implementation of MLC 2015.
