The Joint Force Training Centre (JFTC) has just concluded its annual internal training. The training is an integral part of the JFTC programme of work and takes place every September. It is meant mainly for the newcomers, but also serves as a refresher of key processes and procedures for all the other personnel. Although, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the number of exercises for the whole staff was limited to the minimum, JFTC executed the event successfully between 21 and 25 September.

As every NATO command, JFTC needs to constantly adapt to the ever changing requirements of the Alliance. This is why, apart from focusing on three main areas of its mission – training for current operations, training for future operations and support to NATO warfare development – JFTC is continuously optimising its capabilities. An annual internal training gathers all the information and knowledge required to keep JFTC members up-to-date and ready to perform their duties.

The event was especially important for newcomers who joined this summer. Interactions with the Centre’s key staff as well as sessions presenting JFTC’s mission, battle rhythm and most of all electronic working practice provided them with knowledge and skills necessary to smoothly fit into the Centre’s mission and life.

Lectures, workshops and exercises helped JFTC personnel improve their knowledge on staff and tasking procedures as well as on security regulations, to include first aid and a fire drill. The latter, supported by the Bydgoszcz Fire Department, focused on practical exercises on evacuation and using fire extinguishers.
