This first slide's goal is to address the need to train military screeners to interview contractor
civilian personnel for positions of trust with US soldiers in combat zones. In order for the
contractor candidates to qualify for those positions, they must pass the requirements needed to
obtain a Secret US government security clearance. The Screeners here are military counter
intelligence specialists charged with interviewing the candidates while going over the already filled
out personnel biographical questionnaire brought by the candidate to the interview. The interview
consists of the screener going over the candidate's whole life's highlights: where they lived, what is
their educational level, how did they obtain entry into the US, etc. any misdemeanors, felonies, etc.

Curriculum Goals and Development

This second slide addresses the various main players in the screening process. The Army's
Intelligence and Security Command is the overall agent for supplying contractor linguists to the
field for all branches of the Department of Defense. INSCOM is thus responsible for providing the
personnel and material resources necessary to accomplish the task. The Army hires contractor
companies to recruit and supply potential candidates for these linguist tasks. The Contractor
Linguist Screeners are part of the Linguist Screening Detachment put in place by INSCOM in
order to validate the candidates to the Army for deployment with the troops in country, as needed.
This course formalizes the training necessary to bring a military intelligence specialist up to speed
in terms of being able to properly interview and assess a candidate for this position of trust.
