\documentclass[12pt,letterpaper]{report}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[margin=1in,showframe]{geometry}
\usepackage{titlesec}


\titleformat{<command>}[<shape>]{<format>}{<label>}{<sep>}{<before-code>}[<after-code>]
\titlespacing{<command>}{<left>}{<before-sep>}{<after-sep>}

\begin{document}


\chapter{INTRODUCTION}

This is the first section.

Lorem  ipsum  dolor  sit  amet,  consectetuer  adipiscing  
elit.   Etiam  lobortisfacilisis sem.  Nullam nec mi et 
neque pharetra sollicitudin.  Praesent imperdietmi nec ante. 
Donec ullamcorper, felis non sodales...

how do I do this using titlesec package what do I put in:

 \titleformat{<command>}[<shape>]{<format>}{<label>}{<sep>}{<before-code>}[<after-code>]

and:

  \titlespacing{<command>}{<left>}{<before-sep>}{<after-sep>}
  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Johannes_B Aug 29 '14 at 8:04

Some thing like this?

\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
    {\filcenter\normalfont\Large\bfseries}
    {\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename}\ \thechapter}
    {20pt}
    {}
\titlespacing*{\chapter}{0pt}{0.7in}{20pt}

I didn't understand double space to some extent. I have used 20pt, but you may use \baselineskip instead of 20pt.

\documentclass[12pt,letterpaper]{report}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[margin=1in,showframe]{geometry}
\usepackage{titlesec}


\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
    {\filcenter\normalfont\Large\bfseries}
    {\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename}\ \thechapter}
    {20pt}
    {}
\titlespacing*{\chapter}{0pt}{0.7in}{20pt}
