In 2010, the Warrior Leader Course was cut from 30 days to 15 to accommodate the Army's high operational tempo. Later that year, two days were added back to WLC, as was Structured Self-Development instruction before the course. The new 22-day course will begin Jan. 1, 2012. This chart looks at instructional hours by subject in the three iterations. Pictured here, Warrior Leaders Course students at Fort Bliss, Texas, take part in a proof of concept last spring that reintroduced the land navigation curriculum to the course.
