The main purpose of this course is to enable all participants, who are, or will be appointed as CIMIC Functional Specialists, to conduct CIMIC Functional Specialist activities across the full spectrum of military engagement in a modern operational environment, up to and including corps/component command level. The second purpose is to raise knowledge about NATO CIMIC and to identify the interconnection between CIMIC and the different areas of civil expertise. Due to the specific training requirements, this course is dedicated to those CIMIC Functional Specialists, who are, or will be tasked to perform general CIMIC (e.g. NCFWC or NCSWC) activities in the future. The course will preferably be conducted parallel to the NATO CIMIC Field Worker Course and NATO CIMIC Staff Worker Course.
