The Training Division (TND)

The TNG Division manages many of the DOD Title 10 and Title 22 SC programs, including the Defense Institution Reform Initiative (DIRI), the Warsaw Initiative Funds (WIF), and the Ministry of Defense Advisor (MoDA) program, which focus on ministerial-level Partner Nation engagements and include recruiting, training, and deploying DoD civilian advisors worldwide.  TNG also manages the international SC training and education program by developing and promulgating training policy and guidance, and providing oversight for the implementation and execution of the training to International Military Students, including the State Department's International Military Education & Training (IMET) program.  Additionally, TNG provides Executive Agent administrative support and resource management for the DoDs Regional Centers for Security Studies (RC) enterprise.  This effort includes programming, budgeting, reconciling diverse program leadership priorities, and identifying and implementing best practices to improve efficiencies and effectiveness of the RCs.  Finally, TNG provides information technology-based collaboration support to partner and DoD communities of interest through the Regional International Outreach- Partnership for Peace Information Management System (RIO-PIMS) and Regional Center Person/Activity Management System (RCPAMS).
