NAVSCIATTS prepares a schedule for the projected fiscal year before the four annual
Security Cooperation Program Management Reviews (TPMRs). This schedule may be adjusted
to meet the requests for class quotas submitted by country Security Cooperation
Officers (SCOs). The final schedule is forwarded to Naval Education and Training
Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA). To obtain quotas after completion
of TPMRs, forward requests directly to NETSAFA via the Security Assistance Network
(SAN). The NETSAFA webpage can be found at:
All countries, Military Groups and Security Cooperation Officers should carefully
select and screen properly prospective students in accordance with current directives,
considering the candidateís rank, age, experience, formal prior training and the
studentís ability to represent his/her country favorably. At a minimum, students
selected should be in good to excellent medical and dental health to include HIV
and chest X-rays, normal vision (correctable to 20/20), normal hearing and manual
dexterity. In addition, students should demonstrate general aptitude in basic reading
comprehension, writing abilities and math skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication
and division of fractions and decimals) as well as course prerequisites.
Effective March 2009: All candidates with the U.S. rank equivalent of 0-4 (Major
or Lieutenant Commander) or higher will require a waiver from NAVSCIATTS in order
to attend in-resident courses. Please email
email@example.com for approval.
For countries designated by Security Cooperation Program guidelines, students attending
NAVSCIATTS courses in English must satisfactorily complete the English Comprehension
Level Test (ECL) by scoring a minimum of 70% prior to departure for the United States.
The training is technical and hands-on. It is geared towards enlisted, non-commissioned
officers and junior officers.
In accordance with the U.S. Immigration regulations, all students must possess a
valid official passport with the proper visa to cover the entire length of their
projected stay in the United States, plus a copy of their orders for presentation
upon arrival. Students who travel through or stay in other countries during their
transit to or from NAVSCIATTS need appropriate visas.
The ITO is the controlling document for sponsorship, authorized training, conditions
and privileges and is used to provide recognition of the military or equivalent
civilian status of the student. Advance copies of ITOs should be forwarded to the
NAVSCIATTS IMSO at least two weeks prior to the studentís arrival. All students
should have one original ITO and nine additional copies upon arrival.
While not specifically required by current directives, SCOs are requested to forward
a DD Form 2339 (DoD Biographic report) on each student. The availability of such
biographical data has proven a useful tool in adapting course material to student
capabilities and in providing effective counseling to students experiencing difficulties.
The forms should be forwarded two weeks prior to the studentís arrival.
Students' arrival information should be forwarded to NAVSCIATTS two weeks prior
to the studentís arrival and should contain the studentís name, gender, airline
