Program Considerations
By design, recurring, predictable, "steady state" training requirements are taught at DLIFLC-Monterey
DLI-W's function includes serving as the DLIFLC Economy of Force element for emerging and rapidly changing needs; DLI-W teaches all requirements for languages not taught at Monterey
Training conducted under the CFLTP:
Defense Attach System (DAS) regardless of language
Low Enrollment Languages
Contingency/Rapid Response
All language training is full-time, resident instruction (= no "other duties"); six contact hours per day

Requirement is for resident, full-time (six hours per day) training; typical student load is 200-400 resident students at any given time and 600-700 annually
Approximately 60% of students are officers
Approximately 50% are in abbreviated courses of different lengths
Training under this contract is driven by DoD responsibilities and missions -- driven by world events and United States Government (USG) political-military priorities.
Our Program
Our mission demands face-to-face training and the use of established, professional foreign language schools (with an established educational facility) to perform the training and language supervisory duties defined in the PWS.
Under certain circumstances and contingencies, training may need to move online.
Training is highly unpredictable -- changes such as curtailments, extensions, hiatuses, and class divisions are the norm rather than the exception.
School Code (SC) 219 (less than 10%) -- Forecasted training
School Code (SC) 216 (90%) -- un-forecasted training requirements; requirements received approximately 60 -90 days prior to class start
