Any training and education provided shall include Internet-based education and training and advanced distributed learning and similar Internet learning tools, as well as distributed training and computer-assisted exercises. The providing of learning content and information technology under this authority shall be subject to the provisions of the AECA and other export control regime under law relating to the transfer of military technology to foreign nations. The Secretary of Defense is to develop and issue guidance on the procedures for the use of this new authority. Not later than 31 October following each fiscal year, the Secretary is to submit a report to the congressional armed services and foreign relations committees regarding the usage of this authority during such fiscal year. This amendment is effective 1 October 2008. Modification and Extension of Authorities relating to Program to Build the Capacity of Foreign Military Forces (Section 1206) Amends Section 1206, NDAA, FY2006, P.L.109-163, 6 January 2006, as later amended by Section 1206, NDAA, FY2007, P.L.109-364, 17 October 2006, by extending the authority through 30 September 2011 (vice 2008) to take effect 1 October 2008. Also increases the annual program authority to $350,000,000 (vice $300,000,000). But more importantly, authorizes the availability of funds from one fiscal year to extend into the next fiscal year for obligation. Additionally, further authorizes this 1206 assistance “to build the capacity of a foreign country’s maritime security forces to conduct counter-terrorism operations.” Extension of Authority and Increased funding for Security and Stabilization Assistance (Section 1207) Amends Section 1207, NDAA, FY2006, P.L.109-163, 6 January 2006, as later amended by Section 1210, NDAA, FY2008, P.L.110-181, 28 January 2008, extending the authority through 30 September 2009 (vice 2008) to take effect 1 October 2008. The basic annual aggregate value for the 1207 program remains unchanged at $100,000,000; however, an additional $50,000,000 authority during FY2009 is provided for facilitating the provision by the Secretary of State of reconstruction, security or stabilization assistance to the country of Georgia . Additionally, nothing in this overall 1207 authority shall be construed as to authorize the provision of budget support to any foreign country. 23

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
