Linguist Management Regulation Published
AR 611-6, Army Linguist Management, dated 16 February
1996, is now in the field for implementation. All commanders and
language program managers need to be aware that the regulation
raises the minimum proficiency requirements for qualified linguists
to level 2 for listening and level 2 for speaking or reading.
A remediation period has been established for soldiers who are
below the 2/2 requirement. First term soldiers may extend to
complete remedial training. After remedial training, soldiers below
the minimums must get a waiver from the Chief, Military Police,
Military Intelligence (MI) or Language Branch to reenlist in their
current military occupational specialties (MOSs). Mid-term and
career soldiers have the following time frames to attain the
required proficiency levels:
Failure to attain 2/2 after this period subjects the
soldier to involuntary reclassification.
- Category I and II languages: one year.
- Category III languages: two years
- Category IV languages: three years.
Security Clearance Requirements for 98G
Soldiers reenlisting or reclassifying into MOS 98G (Voice
Interceptor) are eligible to attend initial language training and
advanced individual training with interim Top Secret security
clearances. Soldiers must have been granted a final Top Secret
security clearance prior to the award of the MOS. (The OCMI POC for
