Education & Training

The JAPCC contributes expertise to a variety of NATO and national education and training entities. They include NATO School Oberammergau, national staff colleges and HQ/entities responsible for offering training. Coordination between COEs is crucial to provide the best possible functional support in the required areas of expertise. The JAPCC’s support to training is in response to individual requests or to longstanding agreements with training entities. The JAPCC itself does not conduct its own courses, but provides Subject Matter Experts that offer their specific expertise in areas that may not be available elsewhere.
