The Basic Extension Program, the Air Force Counterintelligence Course and the Expeditionary Activities Course were recently awarded accreditation by the Community College of the Air Force.
Three additional Federal Law Enforcement Training Center courses were added to a CCAF list of accredited agent training. The BEP was awarded five credit hours. The AFCIC and EAC were awarded four hours and three hours, respectively. These aforementioned courses now join CITP (18 hours), BSIC (13 hours) and CTOC (eight hours) on the CCAF list of accredited USAFSIA courses.
"This means that from the minute an agent trainee steps foot onto FLETC until the minute they finish their upgrade training, they receive college credit -- a whopping total of 43 hours. Adding CTOC takes the total to 51 hours!" Col. Shan Nuckols, commander, USAF Special Investigations Academy, FLETC, Glynco, Ga., wrote in an email addressed to AFOSI leadership.
As importantly, he noted, BEP, AFCIC and EAC instructors can now count their hours toward their CCAF instructor internship.
According its website (, the USAFSIA provides in-residence and mobile training, blended and distance-learning capabilities, and professional development to produce and enhance specialized investigative and counter-threat capabilities for the United States Air Force.
