I. INTRODUCTION.- The constant challenge faced by institutions involved in the dynamic process of teaching and learning has to do with the quality of instruction offered by a highly qualified teaching staff, capable of exercising a positive influence on student behavior in the efficient performance of their work and consequent fulfillment of their mission. The Staff and Faculty Development Department (SFDD) of the “Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC)”:https://www.infantry.army.mil/WHINSEC/ has taken up this challenge as part of the educational system, committed to the department’s primary responsibility of training the instructors who will form part of the Institute’s faculty and those who, after successfully completing the Instructor Training Course (ITC), will take on this role in their home institutions and countries, becoming messengers and replicators of our doctrine and philosophy as graduates of our Institute. This responsibility is the benchmark for our efforts and the inspiration for our motto, “*EXCELLENCE STARTS HERE*.”
