The Navy COOL program is available to active-duty Navy and Navy Reserve, less Individual Ready Reserve (IRR), and Voluntary Training Unit (VTU).
Check with Navy COOL to determine eligibility requirements for enlisted Sailors (E4 to E9) and Officers.
Military service members can earn their leadership certification no matter where they are stationed globally.
Our certification exams are conducted online.
Our Authorized Training Partners (ATPs) also offer instructor-led online exam prep training.
Because Navy COOL does not fund exam prep training for certification exams, we have established the RBLP Sea Services Scholarship to cover the cost of RBLP, RBLP-C, and RBLP-T exam prep training at participating Authorized Training Partners (ATPs). Enlisted sailors using COOL funding for their exams are eligible. Scholarship funding is limited so apply now to get started.

Our application takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Get quick approval via email.
Navy units may use SF182 and the government charge card to pay for exam prep training and our certification exams for personnel at paygrades E4-E9 and all Officers.
Sailors who have earned certification through RBLP have a lot to say about the program.
This certification has helped me serve those I lead both as a Naval Officer and a Speaker, Coach, and Trainer.
This certification is an amazing way to translate all the leadership training service members receive, which all too often doesn’t translate to the civilian sector well.
The RBLP-T certification should be required for every new Chief Petty Officer in the Navy.
I have strongly encouraged my superiors, peers, and subordinates to consider this certification program.
I have served in leadership positions for a long time (>20 years) and I can honestly say this certification process is one of the best I have been through. It really helped me to refocus on the highly important priority of building resilient teams to create learning organizations.
