With this class, IPAL now enters its 5th year assisting partner countries to meet the dynamic leadership challenges of the 21st Century!
The IPAL course provides leadership education and training for international military personnel from all military services and has been designed to create a cadre of individuals in participating countries who can:
1. Rise to levels of prominence within their country's military leadership ranks, because of improved performance by personally employing enhanced leadership skills and possessing a greater strategic understanding of Leadership.
2. Serve as liaison personnel for the various U.S. (or other allies') METs or MTTs or other COCOM sponsored visits, (funded from a variety of sources), that are geared to improve professionalism and leadership.
3. Become instructors for a national military education effort to improve not only military professionalism and leadership skills, but also to help create an understanding of the necessity for a more skilled, better trained, more professional cadre of junior officer and enlisted leaders.
IPAL combines the best aspects of time tested and proven leadership training with the latest state of the art educational methods. The course was designed first and foremost with a singular focus on enhancing the leadership capabilities and professional development of international military members.
