Answering Questions About Your Agency Training
(From the NSA Handbook)
During your career or assignment at NSA, there is a good chance that you will
receive some type of job-related training. In many instances the nature of the
training is not classified. However, in some situations the specialized
training you receive will relate directly to sensitive Agency functions. In
such cases, the nature of this training may not be discussed with persons
outside of this Agency.
If your training at the Agency includes language training, your explanation for
the source of your linguistic knowledge should be that you obtained it while
working for the Department of Defense.
You should not draw undue attention to your language abilities, and you may not
discuss how you apply your language skill at the Agency.
If you are considering part-time employment which requires the use of language
or technical skills similar to those required for the performance of your NSA
assigned duties, you must report (in advance) the anticipated part-time work
through your Staff Security Officer (SSO) to the Office of Security's Clearance
