In-residence Programs

Available Resident Courses are shown below. The “back to back” scheduling of these resident courses affords attendees the option of attending either or all courses. The resident courses can also be offered in-country. We also now offer a regionally tailored in-residence course for Spanish speaking participants .

We encourage early reservation of quotas since course attendance is limited to 20 participants. Resident courses are taught in English and require an English Language Comprehension (ELC) score of 80 with the exception of MASL P179623 which is taught in Spanish and does not require a ELC; ELC waiver requests will be considered on a case by case basis for all other resident course MASLs. All courses are approved for E-IMET funding for civilian students. The Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) exercises overall quota control for these resident courses.
