Question NSW/Spec Ops Billets for CTI/IS???

Hey everyone,

Just curious if someone can help shed some light on the topic of receiving NSW billets for either CTI or IS. Because this is such a "hush hush" position, I understand the secrecy. So far I have gathered that for a CTI, if given the right circumstances, he could be apart of the TIO (Tactical Information Operations) Program. And for an IS, he could receive the 3912 NEC as an NSW Intel Specialist.

I was wondering how accurate and updated this information is. Also, would anyone here be able to explain exactly what these 2 opportunities would present as far as mission objectives?

Check out this thread for information on TIO.

From what I understand it's a possibility for CTs, but only after re-enlistment. You can't get that type of job straight out of DLI/Corry. I'm a CTI (still in training, although I'm getting closer to the end), I don't know much about IS.

Thanks jzhaun,

MILPERSMAN 1306-984 states "Due to the nature of work and requirement to operate independently, first tour Sailors are not authorized to apply" ... Does "First tour" refer to a first enlistment overall, or just the first time going from Shore to Sea/Sea to Shore?

CTIs don't have sea and shore rotations, we have CONUS and OCONUS rotations.

But yeah, by first-term they mean your first enlistment. Realistically - you spend a month or two on hold, then 6 months~ 1.5 years learning your language at DLI, then you go to follow-on training at a destination pretty much determined by your language (the NIOC in Hawaii, Georgia, Maryland or Texas), spend some more time in hold - it's common for people with CAT-IV languages to not start learning how to do their actual job until 2+ years into their enlistment.

There's no realistic way to accumulate the expertise necessary for stuff like Aircrew or TIO in your first term.

Again, thank you jzhaun. You have been very helpful. I will keep doing research on IS.
