Welcome to the California National Guard Equal Opportunity Leader’s Course (EOLC). Upon successful completion of the EOLC, you will be prepared to assist and advise your command teams with equal opportunity questions. Training will be accomplished by lecture based instruction, active participation, and collective skills training. The instructors will discuss issues that pertain to the equal opportunity environment and so-licit participation and examples from students. The only written test is a comprehensive final exam at the conclusion of the course. This will not be a physically demanding course.
