Daylight Saving Time Ending

Daylight Saving Time (DST) will be ending in the United States on Sunday, November 1st. All SOFTS course schedules are based on the Eastern time zone in the US. However, students should be aware of whether or not their specific location observes DST and how Daylight Saving Time ending may affect the time at which they join their class. If they have any questions, or are unable to continue participating in the course on its current schedule after DST ends, please encourage them to contact the Helpdesk. We will do our best to support each student to ensure they can continue receiving their language training.

Important message regarding macOS Catalina

In October, Apple will release a new operating system, macOS 10.15 Catalina.

To ensure your computer continues to work the way it should within the SOFTS platform, we strongly recommend waiting to update until we have confirmed compatibility. We are working closely with Apple and our partners to ensure that the SOFTS platform will be compatible with macOS 10.15 but some parts will not be able to be confirmed until the official new operating system is released. Upgrading your system before we have had a chance to work through the specific details of the platform after the new version is released may cause you to be unable to attend class.

We will send another notice and post an announcement once we have confirmed that everything works as it should. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Thank you,
The SOFTS Helpdesk



SOFTS is a foreign language and culture training program that allows students to participate in real-time class sessions online from anywhere in the world. Students and instructors meet in a virtual classroom, utilizing live streaming audio and video along with sharing tools to provide all of the same resources as a traditional brick-and-mortar classroom. The program is designed to support operators in the Special Forces community, but classes are available to any active duty, reserve, or civilian personnel on a space-available basis.


  • Special Forces operators from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, or Air Force are eligible to request new courses that are not on the schedule.
  • Any active duty, reserve, or civilian personnel from the Department of Defense or other government agencies are eligible to participate on a space-available basis. Note, retired personnel and contract employees are not eligible.


SOFTS Online and the virtual vConnect classroom are fully encrypted and secure. Read More
