Defense Civilian Emerging Leader Program (DCELP)


The Defense Civilian Emerging Leader Program (DCELP) provides training to the next generation of the Department of Defense leaders. As authorized by the National Defense Authorization Act, 2010, Section 1112, fills a critical need, by enabling the Department of Defense (DOD) to focus on leader development at the entry level for the civilian workforce. Leadership development at this level establishes a baseline for further growth and development for the participant, as leadership responsibilities increase. DCELP builds on the competencies generally required for the Lead Self and Lead Teams/Projects level of the DOD Civilian Leader Continuum and supports the DOD Civilian Leader Development Framework. This program lasts 12-18 months with courses conducted at the DoD Executive Management Training Center (EMTC) in Southbridge, MA.  The graduation ceremony is conducted in Washington, DC.
