The theater specific required training that arriving personnel and units assigned to, rotating to, or in temporary duty status to USFK must complete prior to deployment to the Republic of Korea (ROK). It is imperative this training be completed to facilitate accomplishment of assigned missions or tasks, and at the same time, ensure you understand specific policies and customs that will prepare you to act in a manner that is compatible and respectful of the culture and laws of the Republic of Korea and thereby maintain good order and discipline.
USFK Regulation 350-2, 22 February 2012

Sexual Assault Prevention Response (SAPR) Training
USFK’s sexual assault prevention objective is to deliver consistent and effective prevention methods and programs. All DoD personnel inbound to Korea are required to complete service specific SAPR training.
Under Training Tools on the right side, locate your service component and take the required training.
If you have any issues with the SAPR training link, please E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Counter-Intelligence Awareness and Reporting (CIAR) Training
All DoD personnel inbound to Korea are required to complete service specific CIAR training.
CIAR training is an annual requirement for all DoD personnel IAW DoDD 5240.06. Additionally, CIAR training is required within 30 days of arrival at a new duty station or employment with DoD. It is also DoD policy that training be completed face-to-face whenever possible.
The 501st MI BDE is the CI executive agent for USFK and provides the bulk of CIAR (Army calls it TARP) training in Korea; however, we have NCIS and AFOSI offices throughout the peninsula who provide CIAR training for Korea-based Navy/Marine Corps and Air Force personnel. For Yongsan-based personnel, Seoul Military Intelligence Detachment (SMID) provides training every Thursday as part of newcomer's training and on a quarterly basis for the installation as a whole. Units/sections can also call SMID to schedule training for their organization.
Below is service specific contact information for Yongsan as well as a few links for online training. All of the options below will satisfy the DoD requirement but may not satisfy the service component or organizational requirement. Again, the online option should be the last resort.
Training is available at Yongsan Garrison through the following units. Call to request a class.
Seoul Military Intelligence Detachment (SMID) / 501st MI BDE
Naval Criminal investigative Service (NCISRA Seoul)
Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI Det 614)
