Welcome to the annual United States Special

Language Program Managers’(CLPM) Advanced
Competencies Course at the Doubletree AirportWestshore, Tampa, Florida from 11 –14 August 2014.
This year, in response to many requests, we are
reaching out to Academia to learn how they approach
language and culture instruction and to glean lessons
applicable to our own programs.
The goals of this course are to provide the Command’s
language managers with information, instruction, and
assistance that will help them build successful language
and culture training programs.
The agenda includes presentations and round-robin
style workshops addressing program leadership,
program of instruction development, classroom
observation, new and improved training software, and
component command presentations. This continuing
education for Special Operation Forces Language
Program Managers provides a forum to exchange ideas
and information with their counterparts.
