Training

CTIP Awareness Training Program

The Department of Defense Instruction 2200.01, "Combating Trafficking in Persons (CTIP)," establishes DoD policy on CTIP and assigns responsibilities. The instruction requires heads of all DoD Components to ensure all personnel (i.e., all Service members and DoD civilian personnel) take Combating Trafficking in Persons Training within their first year of initial entry with follow-on training determined by the Military Departments. Components may employ training products internally developed and approved by the OUSD (P&R) CTIP PMO or use CTIP PMO developed training products. Please contact dodctip@mail.mil to obtain CTIP PMO developed training products.

Training Reporting Process

The CTIP Program Management Office no longer requires the reporting of training numbers for the CTIP General Awareness training. However, please be advised that you may be asked to provide the number of initial entry personnel trained if DoD receives an audit or an inquiry. DoD Components must describe the method used to track initial entry training (within the first year) for military and civilian personnel as a part of their annual Self-Assessment report.

Beginning in Fiscal Year 2021, the reporting requirement for the CTIP Investigative Professionals training and the CTIP Acquisition Personnel training changed. Components must now report the total number of their investigative professionals and acquisition personnel, how many were required in the Fiscal Year to take the specialized trainings (requirement for both trainings is once every three years), and how many of the required personnel took the specialized trainings. The Annual CTIP Self-Assessment is due to the CTIP Program Management Office by November 30.

What is the Toolkit?

The Standard Curriculum Toolkit is a collection of resources designed to help you develop training materials to meet the CTIP training requirement, if you choose to develop your own training. You should reference this toolkit when developing CTIP training and incorporate each of the required elements in your course material. The CTIP PMO will review your training materials to ensure that they include each of the required elements.

The Department of Defense (DoD) Instruction 2200.01, “Combating Trafficking in Persons (CTIP)” requires new personnel (i.e., all Service members and DoD civilian personnel) to take CTIP training within their first year of initial entry (Section 2.9.b).

Components are able to use DoD deployed training to meet this requirement or develop their own training.

Adhering to the requirements in this Standard Curriculum Toolkit (SCT) will ensure your training is consistent with CTIP terms, laws, and concepts used DoD-wide. This Standard Curriculum Toolkit serves as a floor, not a ceiling, and contains the basic information necessary to train for General Awareness.
