Notes
This course is not available for online/individual registration. See the training manager at the Security Cooperation Office in the U.S. Embassy for registration/quota reservation process and tuition pricing for resident classes. Quota assignment/seat reservations are handled by the Air Force Security Assistance Training Squadron (AFSAT). The cost of an MTT varies by location, number of students, and course desired.

SCOs positioned in countries considering/desiring an MTT should ensure that their respective CCMD, DSCA IRT and DSCU are made aware of the requirement as soon as possible. DSCU consolidates and coordinates the priority of MTT scheduling in conjunction with its annual Academic Program Plan annually in the Spring for the following fiscal year.
