Professional Trainee Program

The Professional Trainee (PT) Program is an entry-level program for candidates seeking a career as a Core Collector overseas. PTs have a minimum of a bachelor's degree but lack substantive work experience. Upon entry on duty, PTs are offered the opportunity to gain experience through a series of responsible Headquarters-based assignments that expose them to core aspects of the mission of the Directorate of Operations prior to joining the Clandestine Service Training (CST) Program.
