COURSE: 86-442 Junior Officer Leadership II (4)
A continuation of 86-441, this course completes the transition from cadet to lieutenant. As a follow-up to the ethics instruction in JO Leadership I, this course starts with a foundation in the legal aspects of decision making and leadership. The next modules reinforce previous instruction on the organization of the Army, introduce how we organize for operations from the tactical to the strategic level, and introduce administrative and logistical management issues that focus on the fundamentals of soldier and unit level support. The final module that introduces new information focuses on the often-confusing process of changing duty stations and reporting to a new unit. Upon completion of this semester the cadets will be prepared to shoulder the responsibility of being a commissioned officer in the United States Army. The course includes weekly leadership laboratories, one weekend field trip, and physical training. Prerequisite: 86-331, 86-332 and 86-441; Offered: Summer.
