LTC Description:

George Washington University hosts the Foreign Area Officer Regional Skill Sustainment Initiative, consisting of seven specifically designed short courses provided annually.  The aim of the courses is to ensure that Foreign Area Officers (FAOs) maintain and improve their knowledge and expertise on security issues germane to their work. The five regional and area studies security courses and two trans-regional security courses deliver to the FAO community high-level up-to-date knowledge relevant to U.S. national policy making, and include consideration of the interagency process and its impact on issues, the policies of key regional players, the roles and perspectives of third party influencers, and the culture, communication and negotiation styles appropriate to the regions being covered.
