Intelligence Learning Network

The ILN delivers three Intelligence Community (IC) learning and professional development courses focused on meeting the needs of entry-, intermediate-, and senior-level IC professionals working in an integrated environment.

Understanding the Intelligence Community is an entry-level course that blends an online collaborative exploration of material on the threat environment (as the context for understanding the IC and intelligence integration) with a three-day learning/networking event. Participants learn as an interagency team, sharing their perspectives with colleagues from across the IC.

Integrating the Intelligence Community is a 4-week program framed by the National Intelligence Strategy. It blends a three-week online component with a four-day in-residence program. Through a combination of online learning, resident presentations, facilitated discussions, and exercises, participants collaboratively explore intelligence integration; the authorities and directions that shape it; the strategies, conditions, and initiatives that guide it; and the emerging opportunities for its use.

Leading the Intelligence Community is a program designed to engage senior executive level participants to think strategically and creatively about leadership and to broaden their influence over integration and collaboration in the IC, along with our federal, state, local and private sector partners. The course has three distinct parts: a plenary week at ODNI, an in-residence week at a prestigious university business school, and a TDY week to a major U.S. city to see first-hand examples of intelligence integration in the field.
