From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The George P. Shultz National Foreign Affairs Training Center (NFATC) is one of several locations that house the Foreign Service Institute (or "FSI"), the United States government's training school for members of the U.S. foreign affairs community. It is located at Arlington Hall in Arlington, Virginia.

The Foreign Service Institute prepares United States diplomats and other government foreign affairs professionals to advance U.S. foreign affairs interests overseas and in Washington DC. At the NFATC, and other locations both domestically and abroad, FSI provides more than 400 classroom courses, including some 60 foreign languages, to more than 42,000 individuals annually from the State Department and more than 40 other government agencies and the military service branches. Additionally, FSI enrolls over 5,900 State Department employees into outside training programs and provides access to several thousand commercial distance learning courses for over 2,200 State Department employees.

The Institute's programs include training for the development of U.S. and foreign nationals who work at U.S. embassies and consulates around the world. 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.
