NATO doctrine uses a monitor-assess-plan-direct model, and NATO School Oberammergau (NSO) teaches the Comprehensive Operations Planning Course (COPC (SS-54), the Combined Joint Operations Centre Course (CJOC (P3-53) and NATO Operations Assessment Course (P5-128) but there is no course to facilitate the transition from planning to execution, and lessons identified from multiple TRIDENT and STEADFAST Exercises in the last decade have also exposed these shortcomings.

This performance gap is amplified in Article V, Major Joint Operations (MJO) and MJO+ scenarios where time, space, forces, and effects need to be synchronised in order to create decision superiority and overwhelm an adversary, whilst protecting the force. The Joint Synchronisation Course (JSC) seeks to address these gaps.

SWEDINT now provides the JSC as an online/residential blended learning activity for NATO Nations and selected NATO Partner Nations of Australia, Finland, New Zealand, and Sweden and to two distinct target groups working at the Operational level and engaged in joint synchronisation activities: OF3-OF5 Practitioners and Senior OF5-OF6 personnel, including OF7 in the DCOS Ops role at JFCs; for further information of the target audience and the course methodology/objectives see the attached pdf below: 'JSC Explained'.

To apply, when a course is available, complete the then attached SWEDINT Application form; an early application is highly recommended as demand for both practitioner and senior activities are continually high.
