United Nations Junior Officer Course 2010

UNJOC 2010 - Training for UN Peace Support Operations


67 officers and NCOs from 12 different nations participated in the United Nations Junior Officer Course for two weeks at the snowy facilities of SWEDINT. The aim of the course was to prepare the participants for service in any Peace Support Operations mission and particularly for current UN-operations. Since the course focuses on Peace Keeping Tactics and Techniques, most of the exercises were of practical nature with hands-on skills. For the second week the course were organized as a Multinational Unit, and the course participants were tested in a practical field exercise while deployed in the fictive conflict area of Bogaland.
