Joanne DeLeon was one of three of CP-18’s biggest eLearning platform users this year [2018], earning almost 70 hours of credits. CP-18’s online Learning & Continuing Education Portal is available to US Army Engineer and Scientists (Resources and Construction) Civilian Employees. This program supports the training & development needs of Engineers, Architects, Facility Managers, Land Surveyors, Electricians and other Construction professionals. Joanne is a retired Air Force NCO – HR professional, currently serving as a Civil Engineering Technician with the Corps of Engineers. While in the Air Force, Joanne worked at MacDill AFB’s Enlisted Career Advisor.


Since retirement, Joanne has had a diverse civilian career, taking her across many interesting fields, such as being a 911 first-response operator. Since becoming a member of the Corps of Engineers, she’s been deployed in support of the California wild fires and has worked with the Corps’ Prime Power Team to bring electrical power to severely affected communities.


Not only has Joanne been able to earn required credits, this learning platform has helped her improve hard skills used on the job, manage all of her training activity in one place and boosted her overall career development. On behalf of the CP-18 team and Program Director Karla Langland, congratulations and keep up the great work, Joanne!
