Offered by National Defense University and the Joint Reserve Affairs Center, the Reserve Components National Security Course is a two-week course for officers and senior non-commissioned officers. The course prepares students for joint command management in intergovernmental and joint national security situations. Faculty members from the National War College and the Industrial College of the Armed Forces lead attendees in panel discussions and lectures covering national security policies, defense resource management, diplomacy, homeland security, and other important topics.
Members of the United States military can enroll for the Reserve Components National Security Course through their chain of command. A recommendation panel decides who attends based on the number of applicants. The program is tuition-free for attendees, as their units pay for attendance and travel costs. Colonel Sentell is currently assigned as a joint logistics officer with the United States Central Command, which is headquartered in Tampa, Florida.
