Classification 1: Training and the National Academy

This classification was established in 1935 to provide administrative control of all Bureau training. This included training both Bureau personnel and local, state, foreign, and other law enforcement personnel. The overwhelming number of cases opened pertains to investigations of applicants for FBI Field Offices. After a proper field office investigation of the applicant is made, the nomination is sent to Headquarters where final acceptance is made. This classification also contains a small number of administrative case files. These cases document how special training, such as the New Special Agents School, Election Laws Schools, and the Conference of Special Agents in Charge, is conducted.
