Heey all,
First I want too say I am happy I found this site, very great people here. And boards here.
I gues my main reason for posting this is for the following question.
Does anyone know specific topics or subjects that an agent learns, or does anyone have documents or field manuals of more simply put 'spy training'. Or is anyone here former CIA that I could talk to and try to learn from. Now i Will say it out on the open; Im not trying to find out information so i can go outside and well, "blow # up", but because its an area of interest for me, the same way people go and learn a hobby, I am just intrested in this.
Also if you dont want this publicly then please PM me on here.
I will keep all info you give me for myself.
I appreciate anyone who takes the time to read this and hopefully I get some good responces and learn some things. If this is not ok, please delete this then.

I remember reading about some CIA 'tricks' on some website, but i actually can't say exactly what it was.. I believe their training is very complex, but you should try to find out what arts exactly they practice. I don't think anybody can say what they do exactly, as the agency is spread over so many levels.. what exactly are you interested in?
i had a manual about that, found it on the internet.. try searching the internet. you might not find exactly 'spy training', but there are manuals that cover the subject pretty well..
sorry i can't help you more

I'm personally of the opinion that while there may be some valid "tricks" out there floating around, I'm also very positive that the majority of high level techinques of certain areas and agents are held in the strictest confidence.

What kind of stuff were you looking for? It might help narrow down whether or not the information is available to the general public.


*Just a note - I personally don't know of any sites myself...but it might help you narrow down your search.

I would say you have already broken the cardinal rule of CIA.

Think about it. Find the answer. Thus begins your training.

I think this guy might be a terrorist....I mean, look at his poor english writing


If I was in CIA, I sure wouldn't want to provide you all the info you need.

Id say apply to the CIA and find out first hand....or got to Barnes & Noble and pick up some books.

May want to start w/ the history of the CIA and go from there.

Here is a start for you:

search.barnesandnoble.com...



And good luck General Eyes
I have their application saved too

Thanks for the encouragement, GreenEyedLeo


Well, for the serious poitions I'm interested in I'm looking at about 15 years minimum of prepatory work to even qualify - but I wouldn't mind just being a slacker barista in an MIB type of spaceport slinging tasty beverages for interplanetary travelers the rest of my days either.


*cough*

Too bad MIB doesn't have an official .gov website.

Decisions, decisions.

The movie , The Good Sheppard is good too. It is about when the CIA was formed.

It's very enlightening.

Greeneyed, thanks for your post. I shall do some research. But applying won`t be so easy. Because I am located in holland. I do have american citizenship, born there. Also I am not at all sure if thats the way I want too go. First research.
Generaleyes, again good luck with all.
Dizzie, I saw the movie already. A very good movie about how it formed. It was a very good movie.
Thanks all for posting, and feel free too keep it up.

There is no monolithic spy training program. There's a lot of specialized skills that different divisions within the agency would have. There are different types of analysts, regional specialists, special ops types for paramilitary type missions, and field agents, though this is greatly simplistic in terms of the makeup of the organization. Not all field agents perform the same tasks, or have the same subject matter expertise. It's mission dependant.

You are dead right.

I do know a retired researcher from an agency. Very interesting person to talk to at times.
