Job Descriptions

Army National Guard Soldiers who ensure the security of our fighting forces are Counterintelligence Agents. By conducting investigations and in-depth analysis, these agents can detect and counter foreign intelligence entities and national security threats.

In this role, you will provide valuable information to field commanders; interview the civilian population to uncover local security threats; develop intelligence sources within the local population; educate troops at all levels about potential threats to security; and possibly work with members of the corporate community regarding industrial espionage.

Job Duties

  • Detect, exploit, and neutralize intelligence threats
  • Investigate national security crimes
  • Serve as an Army CI liaison
  • Collect and process forensic and physical evidence
  • Conduct CI support to force protection

Helpful Skills

  • Excellent writing ability
  • Ability to work independently (self-motivated)
  • Capable of making sound judgements in the absence of leadership or supervision
  • Research and critical thinking capabilities
  • Ability to interact with senior officials from U.S. and host-nation military civilian law enforcement, intelligence, and security agencies

Being a trained and accredited Counterintelligence Agent in the Army National Guard provides wide ranging opportunities outside of the military, including working with law enforcement, and serving in the Intelligence community with Federal agencies (FBI, CIA and DIA), or even possibly the State Department.

Earn While You Learn

Instead of paying to learn these skills, get paid to train. In the Army National Guard, you will learn these valuable job skills while earning a regular paycheck and qualifying for tuition assistance and certifications.

Job training as a Counterintelligence Agent consists of 10 weeks of Basic Training and 18 weeks of Advanced Individual Training (AIT) at the Counterintelligence Special Agent Course (CISAC), which includes practice in counterintelligence investigations, operations, and analysis. You’ll learn in the classroom and gain experience in the field. Your initial entry training in the Army National Guard could also lead to additional college credit.
