For the newly appointed BC, this program is a must. The transition from company offer to BC will be a challenge. Were you properly prepared to your new position? Experience has shown us that most battalion chiefs were not afforded a solid foundation for the new position.
The move from company officer to BC requires a new skill set. This program will address a myriad of topics offered taking you through many engaging interactive exercises, role plays and other motivating tools to make sure you are ready for the challenge.
