Naval Small Craft Instruction and Technical Training School (NAVSCIATTS), in coordination with the Navy International Programs Office (NIPO) PMS 325 in support of US Embassy Nepal (USEMB), U.S. Pacific Command (USPACOM), Special Operations Command, Pacific (SOCPAC), and Naval Special Warfare Unit One’s (NSWU-1) Lines of Effort (LOE), recently contributed to a "Total Package Approach" for a Foreign Military Financing (FMF) case for Nepal.
NAVSCIATTS is US Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM) International Training Center specializing in applied Security Cooperation/Security Assistance (SC/SA) programs "where the classroom meets the field." This operationalized training center directly supports theater commander’s building partner capacity (BPC) efforts and protects both the US and the partner nations’ "return on investment."
NAVSCIATTS’ Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), in support of PMS 325, were involved with the initial assessment of requirements with the PMS 325 case writers assisting with technical expertise to include training requirements in the development of the FMF case for 14 riverine small craft to the Nepalese army. These case recommendations included CONUS and OCONUS training in support of initial skills development and follow-on in-country training.
