From the 11th to the 14th of September 2023, NATO SFA COE Subject Matter Experts joined the Security Force Assistance Training Needs Analysis (TNA) workshop related to the Military Contribution to Peace Support (MC2PS) discipline. It was organized in Helsinki, Finland by the Finnish Defence Forces International Centre (FINCENT) with the participation of representatives from the US Joint Centre for International Security Force Assistance (JCISFA) and representatives from US Defense and Security Cooperation University.
The workshop concluded the Design Phase of the TNA, started in Rome in May 2023, in accordance with the NATO System Approach to Training (SAT process). The result was to establish a training solution which conforms to NATO education and training requirements within the Military Contribution to Peace Support (MC2PS) discipline.
The workshop ended with the drafting of the course control document (CCD III) that sets the foundations for the delivery of a NATO certified Security Force Assistance Seminar entitled “SFA Advisor Enhancement Seminar”, with the aim to enhance interpersonal knowledge, skills, and techniques required to engage counterparts, build rapport, and gain mutual trust in order to effectively conduct advising activities across various operating environments and cultural contexts.
NATO SFA COE is fully committed to support NATO in its transformation effort by providing innovative education and training solutions.
