Complete and comprehensive CIMIC & CMI Education & Individual Training at first hand at the CCOE.
Training at the CCOE is based on experiences and lessons learned, and covers the entire spectrum of NATO CIMIC & CMI:
The course design is customer oriented and demand driven. It provides a maximum of flexibility by using the Competence Based Education and Training Approach (CBET) model. The content is continuously under development, reflecting challenges of contemporary conflicts, and is fully in line with the needs for CIMIC & CMI personnel, working on the tactical, component command, joint force and strategic level, with the goal to enable interoperability within NATO and beyond (EU, UN). Taking into account that the civil dimension is a crucial part of each course curriculum, the participation of civil organizations’ staff, active on the respective operational level, is highly appreciated.
The course landscape has been designed as a modular system. This allows CCOE to meet the customer requirements in a more flexible and efficient way:
Tailor-made courses can be generated for individual demands on short notice and with little effort. No matter whether those may be residential, exported or ADL courses.
Some of the modules are interchangeable, e.g. course participants of the NCFWC meet the prerequisites to attend the NCSWC, or the NCIFSC, joining in the second week of the course and vice versa. This saves one week in time and reduces also the course fee.

The current CCOE offer encompasses the following courses:
In order to achieve optimum E&IT effects in the residential part of the courses, there is a need to invest an appropriate level of time into completing the corresponding ADL module. The students decide when and where to follow this web-based learning portion. The content can be processed within a day, or split up into several sections. But please be aware, that the completion of the corresponding ADL module for each course within a stated time is mandatory before participating our resident courses.
Detailed technical instructions on how to proceed, and the permitted time for fulfilling the ADL module, will be delivered to you with your course registration package.
Inhouse CIMIC & CMI expertise, training facilities, accommodation, catering service and a broad network of external supporters allows the CCOE to run all courses at reasonable prices. Some figures?
