      Deputy Director for Directorate of Support

      The Directorate of Support has organizational and administrative functions to significant units including:

      ·         Office of Security  (security guards)

      ·         Office of Communications

      ·         Office of Information Technology

      ·         Office of Training

      The Office of Training begins with the Junior Officer Training program for new employees, but it also conducts courses in a wide range of specialized professional disciplines. So that the initial course might be taken by employees who had not received final security clearance and thus were not permitted unescorted access to the Headquarters building, a good deal of basic training has been given at office buildings in the urban areas of Arlington, Virginia.

      For a later stage of training of student operations officers, there is at least one classified training area at Camp Peary, near Williamsburg, Virginia.
