This thesis analyzes intelligence support to NATO Special Operations and the training that facilitates this capability and recommends a model to increase competence in the field of intelligence. The training provided by the NSTEP has led NATO SOF intelligence personnel to fill critical positions that have afforded operational elements to execute missions. The successes of ISAF SOF have been attributed to the skilled analysts that have developed clear pictures of the enemy threat and the analysis of raw information. These skill sets are critical to ensure that the commanders guidance is met and the gaps answered for the operational elements. The steps taken by the NSHQ to meet the need for skilled intelligence professionals have been pivotal to the growth of the NSTEP schoolhouses course curriculum. Additionally, increased accesses to ISR assets and interactions with other intelligence agencies have levied added responsibilities on NATO SOF intelligence officers to become more knowledgeable about multi-disciplinary intelligence operations. This requirement forces NATO SOF intelligence officers to become experts in multiple fields. This access enables these officers to seek out additional training to meet these needs. To ensure these requirements are met, does NSHQ need to develop a curriculum that provides management training for intelligence officers to meet the need of overseeing multisource intelligence elements
