The Special Operations Forces Teletraining System (SOFTS) is a program that takes advantage of proprietary and commercial off-the-shelf technology to deliver real-time language and culture training to students anywhere in the world, including those who are unable to attend traditional classes at traditional training institutions. SOFTS uses training software as a tool or component of courses but this tool is directed by a live instructor to ensure appropriate use. Despite the added costs of SOFTS technology, classes are cost effective and advantageous for many students. The training software has the ability for face-to-face interaction of students and instructors, speaking, reading and writing in script, one-on-one drills, after hours tutoring, and individual and group activities. Any Department of Defense uniformed or civilian person can apply. Classes will only be initiated for SOF personnel, but empty seats can be filled by other DOD personnel. Priority is given to SOF uniformed personnel. If you qualify, we encourage you to register now.
