Our in-resident course participants are selected by an external nomination process. Self-nominations to the Center are not accepted.
International nominations are coordinated through the U.S. Embassy Security Cooperation Offices for vetting and processing to our Center. International nominations come from allied and partner nation whole-of-government organizations to include ministries of defense, foreign affairs, and justice as well as military commands and services, coast guard, police, and other government agencies to ensure a diverse and inclusive audience.
International Organization and Non-Governmental Organizations (IO/NGO) nominations are processed through U.S. Embassy Security Cooperation Offices for vetting and processing to our Center. IO/NGO nominations are limited and formally approved well in advance. These regional participants enable broadening of representation and views in our courses.
United States nominations come from various U.S. military and government organizations. Participants are nominated by military commands and services, Department of Defense, Department of State, USAID, Department of Homeland Security, and other government agencies.
