A course in BALTDEFCOL
Date: (11-03-2022)

The Baltic Defense College in Tartu, Estonia, welcomed for the first time a mobile training team (MTT) from CMDR COE within 7-11 March 2022. The MTT from Sofia delivered a course in a form of a module training as a part of the Joint Command and General Staff Course (JGCSC). The multinational course, bringing together many different nations each year, focuses on the operational level with a strong emphasis on Allied Joint Operations across the full spectrum of operations. 

Since 1999, the Baltic Defense College has proved to be a modern, future-oriented, attractive and competitive, English language-based international defense college with a regional focus and Euro-Atlantic scope. The College serves as a Professional Military Education institution teaching at the operational and strategic levels, applying latest educational principles, effective management and best use of intellectual and material resources, while promoting international cooperation and networking and contributing to research in security and defense policy, in order to meet the enduring defence and security needs of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

The crisis management course delivered by the CMDR COE’s team was part of the BALTDEFCOL training program for the academic year 2021-2022 with 71 students taking part in it. CMDR COE contributed to the organization and conduct of the event with three crisis management experts and one modeling and simulation specialist.

The course was organized as an interactive training comprising a theoretical part and a table top exercise during which the participants were actively working on a specific scenario, learning how to process and derive specific information in order to manage with the different tasks as a part of a crisis management staff.

The dean of the College Colonel (ret) Dr Zdzislaw Sliwa expressed his gratitude to the team and shared a positive attitude for future joint activities with the CMDR COE. The Mobile Education and Training Team received an outstanding support by AMB Shota Gvineria. At the end of the module course, the training audience appreciated highly the CMDR COE’s contribution to the educational process.
