PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii – After 15 years of offering Mandarin Chinese and Korean Apprentice Cryptologic Language Program (ACLP) courses for Cryptologic Technicians (Interpretation) or CTIs, Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) San Diego Training Site Hawaii has got her last ACLP class on Friday, September 17th.

ACLP has been offered as a six- to eight-week course at IWTC San Diego Training Site Hawaii and three other Navy learning sites since 2005 to provide a more focused and up-to-date training environment than has been offered with the Joint Crypto-Language Analyst Apprentice (ACLA) course at the time.

One instructor remarked, “Long classes with reduced throughput gave us the opportunity to experience how each student learns and allowed us, as instructors, to develop our ability to teach in a way that benefits the better with each class. The students also got to know us and recognized our sincere passion for our mission, our qualification and the Navy. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond and teaching young sailors how to be passionate about what we do. Our ACLP instructors have been consistently praised for their enthusiasm and expertise in various mission sets.

A review of ACLP courses, ACLA courses, and fleet requirements resulted in the Navy’s decision to join ACLA courses at Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas, which hosts the full spectrum of ACLA courses for the Army, the Air Force and the Marine Corps. . CAWA courses at Goodfellow provide prospective students with access to a wider range of other service experiences and eliminate the delay between the Defense Language Institute (DLI) and Sailors reporting for their first operational assignment.

Prospective CTIs must pass a Defense Language Aptitude Battery (DLAB) test and then complete more than a year of language training at the IDD before participating in the ACLP or ACLA. Graduates will be able to work at the Crypto Analyst Apprentice level and will be employed in positions ashore, afloat and on airborne platforms in Navy, Joint and Domestic work roles.

“In addition to sharing our technical experience with the students, it was definitely an honor to have the chance during this tour to welcome our newest members into our family and convey both the importance of our mission and our legacy as Korean linguists,” another instructor remarked. .
