There is an advertisement on Dave's for a position in Saudi with a company called USfalcon. Anyone know anything about them? Also, I was reading their advertisement and realized they use a lot of acronyms I am unfamiliar with.

Can anyone help me with:
RSAF
ALC
IMI
AETC
DLIELC
COR
TCO

OK, looking through this list again, I'm guessing RSAF is Royal Saudi Air Force.
And the others....?

Thanks in advance.....

Geez... It's enough to make your head spin, but here's what I came up with (and my head is still intact):

RSAF - Royal Saudi Air Force
ALC - Aviation Logistics Center or Air Logistics Center
IMI - Interactive Multimedia Instruction
AETC - Air Education and Training Command
DLIELC - Defense Language Institute English Language Center
COR - Contracting Officer's Representative
TCO - Test Control Officer
ECL - English Comprehension Level (not on your list, but still mentioned in the ad)

Booyah! Cool

Nomad soul,

Awesome! Thanks a lot!

I've sent them a CV. Will keep everyone posted if anything happens...

You're very likely on target with that one; that was my first guess as well. But really, that many industry-specific acronyms in a job post is a bit riduculous. Yet, the ad writer took time to spell out all the TESOL/TEFL/ESOL/ESL... acronyms. Makes one wonder who they thought the target job seeker would be. Shocked

I can confirm that you are 100% correct on that one. "ALC" does stand for American Language Course, which is the title of the textbook series used for the Defense Language Institute all over the world. Smile
