I swear I saw this question come up a while back. I intended to get back to it at a better time. I am trying to find direct contact information for the person/department that handles inputting the PDSI for OPSEC Level II. I took the course last June and still no PDSI on my ERB.

I took the class in May of this year and the PDSI has just showed up on my ERB.

The H1B PDSI identifier can only be awarded by 1st IO (on Fort Belvoir). You will have to send a them a packet (see their website) and they will update your ERB accordingly.

I went through my branch manager who got me in touch from someone at HRC to get mine on there and they put me in contact with a civilian at HRC. I really wish I had the information, its on my PST and I have since PCS'd and do not have access to it anymore, but all I had to do was submit my completion certificate of OPSEC Level 2 as well as the printout from S-1 showing what the identifier is, HIB, and my ERB showing completion of the course on there.

I wish I kept that guys information I am sorry about that, but like I said, I contacted my branch manager and they pointed me in the right direction. Took me about 2 weeks to get it on there.

The other big part of this conversation is my branch. He is having the same issue as the rest of us unfortunately.

In order to add this to your record, you must submit a DA Form 4187 signed by an O-5 or higher with the following remarks:

1. Request award of PDSI "H1B" (OPSEC Practitioner Specialist).
2. Qualifying Criteria: Have successfully completed the Operations Security Officer Level II training conducted under the auspices of the 1st IOC (L), Ft. Belvoir, VA.
3. Restrictions: None
4. Estimated Termination Date: Indefinite

ENCL:
1. DA Form 5178
2. Certificate of Training

Submit it TO:
ODCS G3 (DAMO-ODI)
ATTN: DAMO-ODI
3200 Army Pentagon
Washington, DC 20310-3200

You must also send a DA Form 5178 for the PDSI itself, signed by your Commander.
Include your certificate of training and submit it all at once thru your S-1. I would imagine they submit it to HRC to forward to the Pentagon.

@SFC Michell,
We tried that as well. The problem is that all one accomishes with this approach is the re-submission of said documentation to the same folks that have already received it.
