Language Training for Spouses Request for Spouse Language Training at DLI-Washington Training takes place at civilian contracted schools located throughout the National Capital Region. As language training is conducted in a professional environment, all students are expected to actively participate, complete assigned homework, and take in-course evaluations and exams. Regular attendance at scheduled training is likewise expected and absences should be kept to a minimum. DLI-Washington expends considerable resources per student to procure and execute this highly individualized model of language training and, as a result, has developed a structured process to ensure fiscal responsibility and student accountability. Before completing the enrollment form, DLI-Washington strongly encourages each spouse student to carefully assess the amount of time and resources they have available to commit to training. Once a training status has been selected (F/T or P/T) and submitted, no changes are permitted so determining your level of commitment up front is essential. Once training has been secured, only one change to the weekly class schedule will be allowed. For example, if a spouse student indicates that they want to train part-time three days a week, Monday to Wednesday from 0900-1400, and after they arrive find out that childcare is available from 1000-1500 Wednesday to Thursday a one-time change will be allowed only if the vendor can accommodate. The first step and most important step, should you elect to participate in language training, is to return this completed form no later than (NLT) 45 days before the start date of your service member’s course. This information can be obtained from your service member’s training manager or detailer. The reason for the 45-day NLT is that it takes approximately six weeks for DLI-W to put training on contract. No training will be contracted without a completed form.
