BNCOC DL phase 1

This is from ALARACT 262-2009:
6. COMPLETION OF COMMON CORE AND TECHNICAL PHASES ARE REQUIRED TO BE CONSIDERED AS A GRADUATE OF ALC. GRADUATES OF BNCOC-CC WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO ALSO COMPLETE ALC-CC. IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SOON TO BE RELEASED AR 350-1, COMMANDERS AND LEADERS WILL: "ENSURE THAT TIME IS AVAILABLE DURING THE DUTY DAY FOR SOLDIERS TO COMPLETE DA-DIRECTED TRAINING AND STRUCTURED SELF-DEVELOPMENT TRAINING."

Your instructor/moderator should have sent a welcome letter to you, your 1st line Supervisor, and your 1SG explicitly stating this.
The DL course is awful. You AD guys are lucky if you get time built into your day to complete this course. Us Reserve and NG Soldiers have to work our normal jobs and do this class on our own time without pay. I really don't want to hear you guys complaining about your unit, "not caring." Sometimes as an NCO you're going to have to put in extra time. That's that whole thing about responsibility and what not.

As for this DL thing? I think it's a disservice to NCOs who really want to better themselves. I think we lose out by not being in a school house enviroment and I think there's a lot lost in the lack of interaction with other NCOs. The course is very easy to pass and you don't have to put much, if any effort into it at all. I really feel like that breeds laziness and complacency. On the other hand, I'm sure the Army is saving a ton of money by doing this but it's at the expense quality NCO development.
I tried the course 21 APR and completed it today. I think this course helps knock down the numbers of people who are not BNCOC qualified, similar to the situation many face with E5 and E6 who have not completed WLC. With that being said Army needs to go back to the old format and in class and BNCOC DL phase 1 should be for those downrage. Its just my idea.

I wouldn't think that most Soldiers would have enough time or enough access to the internet to do this down range.

I haven't done the online version though, about how many hours a day do you have to dediate to it to finish it on time?
ALC CC dL is 90 days in length, but you can knock it out a lot faster than that if you make the time to just do it. However it is also a "lock step" process as well, for instance you must wait on your grader/instructors to review certain quizzes/tests/topic replies, etc. The difficult part is getting enrolled... and making sure that HRC doesn't jack up your Certificate of Training!
How does one go about signing up for ALC Common Core online? Does it have to be done through the Training NCO or can I enroll myself? ATRRS shows some Common Core but none of them are the right one. Also, once you enroll do you have to wait a while before you start? Thanks.

You can request ALC phase 1 through your S3. Once enrolled, you will be given a class date and instructions.
I've received the welcome email with my class number, but the email doesn't include the actual course website, just a link to http://train.army.mil

It says I have to hurry up and Pre-Register so that I don't lose my spot, but I cannot find the place to actually do this. ATRRS just says i'm reserved but doesn't provide an option to "confirm" or "pre-register my spot. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
