The course will end with a three day computer assisted Command Post Exercise (CPX), in which the students will form a reduced Multinational Battalion Staff. During the CPX the students are practicing their gained knowledge in a fictitious Peace Support Operation. The CPX will include role played sub-units, UN-Police, Civilian police, Non Governmental Organizations and International Organization elements in order to create a realistic exercise environment.

Through operational planning the course is able to create necessary course of actions which are crucial for the successful search of illegal lethal weaponry maintaining peace and stability in fictitious area of Betaland. Once again the course has given a good “toolbox” for possible upcoming duties in a Pease Support Operations.
