Dear Part-Time Army Company XO:
Thanks for visiting my website. You’re found this page because you want to succeed as an Army Company XO. If you’re like most folks, you’ve scoured the Internet trying to find resources to help you succeed, but come up short. You’ve read several manuals and books, only to discover that everything is written for your Active Duty counterpart, not you, the Citizen-Solider.
Maybe your Company Commander isn’t very helpful and hasn’t sat you down and counseled you or told you what they expect of you. Maybe you’re like a fish out of the water trying to figure out what your duties and responsibilities are. Or, maybe you just want to learn how to spend your time, be productive, and work smart. If that’s the case, this training is for you.
My name is Chuck Holmes and I am the creator of Part-Time-Commander.com. I am a former Army Major and author of many books and products for USAR and ARNG officers and NCOs.
My first assignment in the Maryland Army National Guard was as a Company XO. I learned a lot in that job and had a successful and rewarding experience. I’ve taken my knowledge from that experience and created The Part-Time Army Company XO Training Course, a product specifically for National Guard and Army Reserve officers.
Why I Created the Course
I created this course to help other officers succeed in their duty position. I want young lieutenants to have a simple game plan they can follow in their new job, and get a predictable result. I also realize that most officers in the ARNG and USAR don’t get very much career advice, mentoring, or guidance. I hope to fill that gap.

I’m sure you keep a digital copy of the course in your leader’s book. I hope you will refer to it often share what you learn with others.
What Is Included?
First and foremost, this is a digital course. Initially, it was a printed manual and CD. Since we are now living in the digital age, I have converted the course to digital format.
- You will receive a 90-minute video presentation in MP4 format. You can watch this on your laptop or phone.
- You will receive a 90-minute audio version of the same training in MP3 format. You can listen to this on your phone, computer, or IPOD at your convenience.
- You will receive a 42-page PDF manual covering all of the training.
- You will receive the 90 slide PowerPoint Presentation with the training materials. This would be great for OPD.
My initial course was created in 2013. I have created an updated version in November 2021. You will receive the newest version with your purchase.
How Much Does it Cost?
The information in this course is worth much more than I am charging for it. If you were to search the Internet and try to figure out all of this stuff on your own, it would take you hundreds of hours. Fortunately for you, I’ve done that work for you, plus utilized my own personal experiences. For a limited time, this course is just $47.
Is there a Money Back Guarantee?
I offer a no questions asked, 30-day money back guarantee, because I know you will love the training. Plus, you’re an officer and your word is your bond. I know you wouldn’t ask for a refund unless you think the material is horrible.
Still not convinced? Don’t take my word for it. Here’s what some of our happy customers are saying:
I bought Chuck’s Company XO Course right before I started my new assignment as XO in a medical unit. The course was so helpful. I learned how to spend my time, what I should focus on, and how to work with the command team and AGR Staff. Without this course, I’m not sure how well I would have done in the job. Now, I feel very confident in my abilities and I am very proficient at what I do. I recommend this course to every other Company XO that I meet, because I know it will help them. Thanks, Chuck!

This is the best money I’ve spent on my professional development. I had spent a few months as a Company XO before I found this course online. I felt lost in my job. I didn’t get much guidance from my commander and I wasn’t sure what I should be doing. Chuck laid it all out clearly and explained what my job was, what my priorities should be, and how I should work with my Company Commander and 1SG. What I like about the course is that it is short and to the point. There’s no fluff. It’s a quick and easy read. And the CD is great because I can listen to it in my car on my way to drill weekend. Invest the money. You will be happy that you did.
