The course also covers the roles of UK intelligence organisations such as GCHQ, and the RAF intelligence structure. It will also introduce you to the worlds of electronic warfare and electronic intelligence.

Following this course, your duties will mainly concern the production of imagery-derived intelligence and target materials. This work requires a combination of visual-cognitive skills, intellectual attributes and practical abilities. On some units the task requires detailed research into specialised subjects in order to assemble complex written reports and illustrative materials. On other units the task requires rapid mental and practical work to produce written reports under strict time constraints.If selected for the SIGINT specialisation you will complete one or more courses at SIGINT Wing, DSI, JITG Chicksands. The syllabus will depend on the current operational requirements but could include modules covering Electronic Warfare and the latest computer assisted search receivers for the analysis of more complex and technically demanding communications systems.If selected for the ELINT specialisation you will complete courses that include modules in Weapon Systems and appropriate computer applications for the analysis of radar emissions. ADDITIONAL QUALIFICATION OPPORTUNITIES The RAF Int An Apprenticeship Centre (RIAAC) offers individuals the opportunity to register for the Intelligence Analyst Apprenticeship Standard. The apprenticeship is a Level 4 qualification, administered by the RIAAC on behalf of 22 (Trg) Gp Apprenticeship Management Team. The requisite skills will be delivered during the 14-week fundamentals of Air Intelligence course and further developed during RIAAC led workshops while in the workplace. All trainees will be subject to an End Point Assessment ahead of an award of the qualification. ONGOING TRAINING/DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES As your career progresses, we will continue to train you in new skills. In addition to management and leadership training you may be selected for one of a number of Further Training (FT) courses. This will be in one of the specialist intelligence fields of Imagery (IMINT), Signals (SIGINT) or Electronic (ELINT), after your first tour in OPINT. YOUR FIRST TOUR For your first tour you may be posted to an Intelligence Cell at an RAF Station where you will work in a team. You will carry out background research, assist in the preparation of intelligence briefings, and help produce intelligence reports for military operations. You could also be posted to a frontline Intelligence unit where you will be required to utilise hi-tech systems in support of more senior Int Ans acting in a tactical imagery role. Alternatively, you could be posted to a unit tasked with the collection and analysis of a variety of signals, ranging from complex communications data transmissions to sonar returns. During your first tour you will initially work under supervision until you gain experience. At the majority of these locations you may be required to work shifts. TRANSFERABLE SKILLS The qualifications and experience you will gain are as valuable in the civilian world as they are in the RAF. This means that whenever you decide to leave the RAF you will be well placed to find a job in a number of fields. This could include telecommunications, analytical work, research, media, information technology or the Civil Service. All Int Ans will be offered the opportunity to complete an RAF Higher Apprenticeship in Intelligence Operations – this is the only Level 4 Apprenticeship the RAF offers. As you progress you will gain a great deal of management and leadership experience which you will have the opportunity to transfer into relevant civilian qualifications.
