 The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE Learning Center (ULC) is the Center for Learning and Training for the Corps of Engineers. It is under supervision of the Headquarters Directorate of Human Resources. The ULC manages and implements the Proponent-Sponsored Engineer Corps Training (PROSPECT) Program.

- This program provides job-related training through technical and professional courses to meet the unique needs of the Army Corps of Engineers and other government agencies.

- For over 30 years the PROSPECT program has been offering selected courses worldwide. The Tom Bevill Center in Huntsville, Alabama is the main training facility.
 
- The course catalog for the PROSPECT Program, known as the Purple Book, currently lists over 200 courses that cover a wide variety of topics supporting the missions of Army Corps of Engineers. These courses are available to federal, state or local government employees. 

- Highly dedicated instructors who excel in their areas of expertise are selected from headquarters, divisions, districts, laboratories, the ULC, or from universities or private firms to design and teach the PROSPECT courses.
