JFAC OC (I)
JFAC operations course "implementation"
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.
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.
Aim of the course
Provide personnel likely to take a position in an Air Operations Command and Control (C2) structure with hands-on training on Master Air Operations Planning (MAOP) as well as Current Operations. After this practical implementation of the theoretical knowledge acquired during the JFAC OC (B), students will have experienced through collective drills and simulations how a JFAC HQ develops an ATO and follows its execution, and therefore will be better prepared to assume their duties within, or in relation with, the Air Component C2 chain.
ATO development (MAOP) - (Understand and practice MAOP Team organisation and planning activities, Understand MAOP Team relationship with GAT and ATO Production teams, Understand and practice basics of ATO planning,Know how to construct a MAOP approval briefing, Know how to present a MAOP approval briefing to the COMJFAC).
ATO force execution - (Understand Current Ops Teams organisation and functions, Know how to use ICC Mission Tote to monitor ATO execution, Know how to use JCHAT to enhance communications and overall C2 within the chain, Understand how to achieve real time coordination and integration with other components).
Pass / Fail criteria
English (SPL 2222 minimum).
- Hold the JFAC OC (B) diploma or equivalent (ex. DACCC IFJT, USAF AOC IQT, etc...) for less than 2 years.
(if the aforementioned diploma has been validated previously at the limit of 2 years, this expiry must be compensated by operational experience in the field of air operations. Then, the candidate will have to request a derogation from the head of the Education & Training).
