Working with DIMO offers personal, professional, organizational and leadership benefits. Our missions provide joint, inter-agency, inter-governmental, and international experience. Potential mission team members should have the following:
1. DIMO instructors should be current, qualified and recognized as subject matter experts. Having only received training in a particular topic is not sufficient. Favorable examples include: actively working in the specialty, history of deployments practicing that specialty, publications, speaking positions, and membership on relevant boards.
2. Potential DIMO instructors should have instructor experience. Teaching personnel in an international setting has additional challenges beyond those commonly experienced when teaching US personnel. Favorable examples include: a history of, or currently teaching US students or foreign nationals in the topics being requested.
3. DIMO instructors should have cross-cultural experience, present a professional image and appropriate military bearing. Examples may include: subject-matter exchanges, deployments, mission trips, international health work, and language or cultural expertise.
