S.A.F.E. Program (For Non-State foreign affairs agency personnel)

The Serving Abroad for Families and Employees (S.A.F.E.) Program provides guidance on security practices and on working successfully in a diplomatic environment overseas.

S.A.F.E. consists of two courses: the Security Overseas Seminar (MQ911) and Working in an Embassy (PN113). These two courses, taken in any order, fulfill the training requirement that all non-State foreign affairs agency personnel must meet before going overseas.

Working in an Embassy (PN113) is an online course that introduces employees of U.S. government agencies and their eligible family members to the structure and function of United States embassies and consulates overseas. It is designed to assist them in working in a diplomatic environment. Course segments are designed to make participants more productive and effective members of the embassy team by helping them to prepare for their first overseas assignment.

Non-State Employee Tuition Rate for Working in an Embassy (PN113): $55

Agencies wishing to enroll their personnel in Working in an Embassy (PN113) should submit a funded SF-182 to Barbara Davis at the FSI Registrar's Office.
