The ALP is designed to develop knowledge and skills in areas related to these traditional roles. Subjects covered include:

  • Leadership;
  • Human resources management and administration;
  • Defense policies (civilian-military relations);
  • CAF operations;
  • Professional competencies (individual development);
  • History, customs and traditions; and
  • Science, technology and war.

Distance learning

The ALP consists of a ten-week distance learning course. This is an asynchronous course, which means that candidates may complete it at their own pace without having to observe a fixed schedule. This learning mode is a flexible and effective way to learn without having to attend classes or adhere to a strict timetable. Following registration, the candidate will receive a course manual with all the information, lessons, reading material, and instructions for course assignments. For the duration of the course, candidates benefit from the guidance of a teaching staff who can answer questions and will correct the candidate’s assignments.
