Abstract

This research was aimed to develop the intelligence training program of Royal Thai Army for resolving insurgency in the southern area. The research was divided into 4 steps, i.e., 1) the preparation of the development of the intelligence training program, 2) the survey of crucial intelligence skills towards resolving internal security, 3) the development of the intelligence training program, and 4) the evaluation of contents and efficiency of the intelligence training teams of the intelligence training program. The samples of the research included commissioned and non-commissioned officers in the southern area in B.E. 2556 through multi-stage random sampling during the survey step in order to create the training program from the 3 battalion units that used to operate in the southern area in B.E. 2556. There were 12 commissioned officers and 9 non-commissioned officers (total 21). At the evaluation step, purposive sampling was brought to select 9 experts. Research instruments consisted of the assessment of intelligence training teams in the southern area.  According to the findings, 4 intelligence training teams were generated, namely, (1) the intelligence preparation of battlefield team, (2) the deception training team, (3) the intelligence source training team, and the counterintelligence training team. Regarding the evaluation of contents and efficiency of the intelligence training teams, it was found that the entire 4 intelligence training teams possessed high efficiency and suits to be tested for resolving insurgency in the southern area in the future.
