- Students must have a Wait or Reserved seat in ATRRS for both Phase 1, 1-250-C8 (DL) and Phase 2, 1-250-C8 prior to being enrolled and given access to Phase 1, 1-250-C8 (DL). You may obtain a reservation for the course through your training section and/or branch manager.
- After the student has verified that they have a valid (not pending) reservation in ATRRS, they must enroll online utilizing the Warrant Officer DL Enrollment link http://usacac.army.mil/organizations/cace/wocc found on the USAWOCC Homepage. Once there, the student will select the Warrant Officer Intermediate Level DL Enrollment link http://usacac.army.mil/organizations/cace/wocc/courses/woscdlenrollment. Read and follow the Enrollment Instructions to complete registration in the Student Management System (SMS).
- After completing all registration/enrollment requirements, the student will be given access to the DL instruction no earlier than 120 days prior to the start date of their Phase 2 Reservation. The student must complete the DL within 90-days from the time of access, or 30-days prior to their Phase 2 report date, (whichever occurs first). Enrollments inside 120-days will have less than a 90-day enrollment period. See links below for further information.
- New registrations/enrollments will not be accepted by the USAWOCC with less than 50 days from the Phase 2 start date.
Previous Course Failure:If a student previously failed to complete the DL course, and wish to be reenrolled, they must request reenrollment via memorandum. In addition, they must provide a separate memorandum from the first O-6 supervisor or commander in their chain of command that describes the corrective actions taken to ensure the student will meet course standards.
PHASE 2 - RESIDENT COURSE: Successful completion of the APFT and height and weight screening are mandatory for course graduation. After the initial APFT and height and weight screening, one retest and/or height and weight screening is allowed. Soldiers who subsequently fail to meet physical fitness and/or height and weight standards will be removed from the course. The Academic Evaluation Report will show "Failed to Achieve Course Standards" and the Soldier is not eligible to enroll in any PME courses for 6 months after dismissal (AR 350-1).
- Officers with APFT restrictions based upon an approved permanent designator in their physical profile must have an approved DA Form 3349.
- Officers with temporary profiles based upon injuries sustained during operational deployment may be permitted by their immediate commander to attend PME within the guidelines of their profile (Must be able to complete an aerobic event). Soldiers must arrive with a copy of their current approved profile and a memorandum signed by their commander stating the profile is a result of injuries sustained due to operational deployment. Soldiers with temporary profiles that are not a result of operational deployment that prevent participation in the 3-event APFT are not eligible to attend the course (Para 3-13b, AR 350-1).
