Security Force Assistance (SFA) has become one of the prime engines of transition - where Afghan police and army units are in the lead for security. One of the main aspects of SFA is the deployment of SFAATs - or Security Force Assistance Advisor Teams to align with Afghan police and army units and advise and assist with all aspects of operations. This includes getting the Afghans to the point where they are doing their own training. SFAATs are helping in this regard through "train the trainer" programs. Read of one such program taking place in Spin Boldac, Kandahar where SFAT 20 (RC South calls their SFAATs by the old term of SFATs) provides instruction to the Afghan Uniformed Police on developing training calendars and teaching classes. See "Train the trainer", DVIDS, March 16, 2013.
