The SEJPME has been renamed the Joint Force Leader Development (JFLD) branch to indicate JKO’s broadening of the branch effort to a wider student audience.
The JFLD branch serves to increase the readiness and capability of company grade/junior officers, Joint civilians, and enlisted personnel. It encompasses the EJPME program as well as the evolving Joint Staff Training and Education Program (JSTEP) for joint assigned civilians and military officers (O1-O3). The program provides CJCS-sponsored, assignment-oriented educational opportunities for enlisted leaders serving in or designated to serve within the Joint, Interagency, Intergovernmental, and Multinational (JIIM) environment.
The EJPME program primarily consists of two separate certificate courses that have been evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE) and recommended for three baccalaureate credits in strategic management.
JKO does not currently interface with either ACE’s digital transcript service or Credly badging. Students who have successfully completed EJPME I or EJPME II after October 2020 should attempt to direct their institutions of higher learning to the American Council on Education (ACE) National Guide to view the ACE credit recommendation of 3 lower-division credits in Strategic Management for each course. The EJPME listing in the ACE National Guide, coupled with their EJPME completion certificate, should be sufficient for colleges and universities to consider awarding course credit.
Before registering for EJPME:
- Ensure your student profile is up-to-date, especially your rank/pay grade.
- Complete the EJPME new student orientation.
