The Instruction establishes the minimum training and qualification policies, procedures, and requirements mandated by the Commandant for all Coast Guard Intelligence-coded billets, and other billets requiring intelligence training.
The requirements ensure intelligence units and their personnel are ready to effectively complete assigned missions or carry out programmatic responsibilities in support of operations.
The Instruction includes all Commandant (CG-2) intelligence training requirements, however, the policies do not prevent operational commanders and subordinate units from specifying additional training requirements for intelligence units or intelligence personnel.
The burden for funding new or additional training initiatives lies with the program or unit that mandates it.
