Foreign Service Institute Course Coordinator
The Foreign Service Institute (FSI) is the Federal Government’s primary training institution for officers and support personnel of the U.S. foreign affairs community, preparing American diplomats and other professionals to advance U.S. foreign affairs interests overseas and in Washington. At the George P. Shultz National Foreign Affairs Training Center, the FSI provides more than 600 courses—including some 70 foreign languages—to more than 100,000 enrollees a year from the State Department and more than 40 other government agencies and the military service branches.
The Institute’s programs include training for the professional development of Foreign Service administrative, consular, economic/commercial, political, and public diplomacy officers; for specialists in the fields of information management, office management, security, and medical practitioners and nurses; for Foreign Service Nationals who work at U.S. posts around the world; and for Civil Service employees of the State Department and other agencies. Ranging in length from one day to two years, courses are designed to promote successful performance in each professional assignment, to ease the adjustment to other countries and cultures, and to enhance the leadership and management capabilities of the U.S. foreign affairs community.
Other courses and services help family members prepare for the demands of a mobile lifestyle and living abroad, and provide employees and their families with important information about such critical and timely topics as emergency preparedness and cyber security awareness, among others.
FSI Background Info: The Foreign Service Institute is organized like a university and consists of five schools:

Army National Guard CERPF – National Guard Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and High Yield Explosive (CBRNE) Enhanced Response Force Package (CERFP)
The CERFPs and Civil Support Teams (CSTs) provide a phased capability. The CSTs detect and identify CBRNE agents/substances, assess their effects, advise the local authorities on managing response to attacks, and assist with requests for other forces. The CERFPs locate and extract victims from a contaminated environment, perform mass patient/casualty decontamination, and provide treatment as necessary to stabilize patients for evacuation. CERFPs are a key element of the Department of Defense’s overall program to provide support to civil authorities in the event of an incident involving weapons of mass destruction in the United States. CERFPs are not first responders, but are designed to fill the 6 to 72 hour gap in our Nation’s ability to provide mass casualty patient decontamination, medical triage, and treatment and extraction from a contaminated environment.
There are 17 CERFP States: New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Colorado, California, Texas, Illinois, Missouri, Florida, Hawaii, Washington, Virginia, Ohio, Georgia, Minnesota, and Nebraska.
CERFPs are currently assigned with at least one CERFP in each of the ten Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regions. There are three CERPF’s in regions III & V (Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Illinois, Ohio, and Minnesota) to provide coverage for high population density in the North/Northeast and National Capital Region (NCR) support. There are two in region IX (Hawaii & California) based on population density and geographic location and two in regions IV & VII (Georgia, Florida, Nebraska, Missouri) to support Southeast population density and provide capability to leverage in the event of a catastrophe such as Hurricane Katrina. Redundant CERFPs, a total of 17, ensure capability is available for each FEMA region which mitigates risk associated with military force generation models.
Each CERFP is required to complete two collective exercises per year. This on-going program of preparedness requires that each CERFP maintains the expertise and readiness required for a quick and effective response to any catastrophic event.
