Comprehensive Operational Planning Course at NRDC-GR

2021, July 26 - 9:06am

From the 12th till the 23rd of July 2021, NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Greece (NRDC-GR) hosted a NATO School Oberammergau Mobile Education Training Team (NSO METT) that conducted a Comprehensive Operational Planning Course (COPC) at its premises.

COPC is one of the most demanding but also crucial courses since its aim is to make the trainees capable for planning at the Operational level and in accordance with the latest NATO documentation. This capability is very important for NRDC-GR at this period due to its role as Multi-Corps Land Component Command (MC LCC); the “link” between Tactical and Operational levels. 

47 Officers attended and successfully graduated the course; not only from NRDC-GR but also from Multinational Corps Northeast (MNC NE), NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Italy (NRDC-ITA) and the Hellenic Supreme Joint War College.

On Friday the 23rd, NRDC-GR Commander, Lieutenant General (GRC A) Anastasios SPANOS fair welled the METT Senior Mentor, Major General (ESP A, ret.) Jaime INIGUEZ ANDRADE; whose presence was essential for the success of the course as the students had a unique opportunity to understand a Commander’s perspective.

During the course, all the respective COVID-19 pandemic protocols were implemented and the protective measures were followed.
