Course description

This course is a practical implementation of the JFAC Operations Course “Basic” (JFAC OC(B) – ETOC Course Code AOP-JF-21250) providing company grade and non-commissioned officers with the necessary practical consolidation of the basic theoretical knowledge acquired during the academic classes of the JFAC OC (B). Students will perform collective hands-on training within the framework of a fictitious but realistic dissymmetric crisis scenario. During the practical phases, and in order to enhance students learning experience, instructors act as mentors and may adapt the scenario difficulty to overall students’ background and skills.instructors act as mentors and may adapt the scenario difficulty to overall students’ background and skills.

Course notes

Instructor-led hands on collective training, supported by a computer assisted exercise (CAX). Students will perform collective hands-on training within the framework of a fictitious but realistic dyssimmetric crisis scenario. During the practical phases, and in order to enhance students learning experience, instructors act as mentors and may adapt the scenario difficulty to overall class background and skills.
