Before You Attend
Ensure you are physically prepared to participate in our Human Performance physical fitness program. All students, in order to meet cognitive objectives integrated throughout the course, must be prepared to participate in the Human Performance program. The overarching purpose of this program is to further expand on lesson principles, while challenging students to reach increased levels of resiliency. Although the resounding majority of graduating students report a noticeable improvement on their Fitness Assessment, it is not a program vectored at improving scores; that is still your responsibility.
Ensure you communicate with your family and friends. EPME is very taxing on one's personal time, and the academic rigors built into the course go far beyond the average duty day. You will be expected to prepare briefings, write papers, perform research, and complete nightly reading assignments on your own time, after duty hours. Having your family and friends understand your obligations over the next several weeks will pay dividends.
Classroom safety protocols will be briefed on DoE 1 by your instructor.
Your arrival time on DOE 1 will be in between 7:10 and 7:30 a.m. Once you enter the building, please ensure that you have your required documents (listed below) on hand and ready for review. A staff member will assist you with check-in and direct you to your designated flight room
