Getting ready for SEA

In the spirit of cooperation—and in bringing together senior leaders from various branches of the service—SEA requires participants to first complete a common learning experience before their class begins in Blackboard.

Completing one of the following online programs will satisfy the SEA prerequisite:

Navy Primary Military Education (PPME)

The PPME online courses, available only to members of the U.S. Navy, are delivered through the eNavy learning system on My Navy Portal (MNP). These classes provide a common educational experience and consist of about six weeks, or 70 hours, of coursework.

Senior Enlisted Joint Military Education (SEJPME)

SEJPME courses, available to all incoming SEA participants, are designed to integrate members from different service branches into a unified group. SEJPME coursework is delivered through Joint Knowledge Online, or JKO. SEJPME’s Level I course involves 40 hours of material, while Level II consists of about 45.

Note: E7s attending SEA must complete Level 1 training, while E8s and E9s must complete both Level I and Level II.
