PERSONNEL SECURITY COURSE

 

PURPOSE:  This course prepares personnel security specialists (i.e. adjudicators) to conduct adjudications of covered individuals to determine eligibility for initial or continued access to classified national security information or eligibility to hold a sensitive position (national security eligibility determinations) in accordance with Intelligence Community Directive (ICD) 704 and Security Executive Agent Directive (SEAD) 4 guidelines. We will review the personnel security process and present approaches to enhance best practices and reciprocity across Executive Branch departments and agencies that are authorized or designated to make national security eligibility determinations. We will also review the personnel security process and identify what should be considered when upgrading an individual to another clearance and/or access level.  This training (or equivalent training that meets National Training Standards) is required for personnel security specialists (i.e. adjudicators) who will be making national security eligibility determinations and essential for other personnel security specialists (e.g., polygraph examiners and background investigators) who need to better understand how their work directly supports these decisions.
