ABSTRACT  
The distributed learning (dL) phase of the Civilian Education System (CES) 
Intermediate course is part of a progressive and sequential leader development 
program that provides educational opportunities for Army civilians throughout 
their careers. Key curriculum concepts were derived by identifying and aligning 
the dL curriculum with the Department of Defense Leader Development Framework 
and Leader Development Continuum dated March 2008. The curriculum is designed 
to address real world issues such as decision-making, resource and human capital 
management, and economies of scale.
