AbstractThe Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) conducted a comprehensive needs assessment to identify, specify, and analyze language, regional expertise, and culture (LREC) mission needs across specified units and occupations in AFSOC to (1) inform the development of LREC training requirements and specifications, (2) determine who needs LREC instruction, and (3) compare REC training needs with current REC instruction provided to AFSOC personnel. The presentation was delivered to the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) Culture Committee on 22 FEB 2013. The focus of this presentation was how the REC knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) requirements were defined. The REC KSAs were informed by multiple resources, including the Air Force Culture and Language Center s LREC Force Development Levels, Defense Regional and Cultural Capabilities Assessment Working Group (RACCA WG), and the ILR Skill Level Descriptors for Competence in Intercultural Communication.
Presented to the Interagency Language Roundtable Culture Committee, Foreign Service Institute, Arlington, VA, Feb 2013.
