AORR Resumes its support for NATO School Oberammergau after one year of pause due to Covid-19 prevention measures
Through Col. (r) Dr. Crăișor-Constantin IONIȚĂ, the Romanian Reserve Officers Association (AORR), member of the Interallied Confederation of Reserve Officers (CIOR) from NATO, succeded to resume the support given to the NATO School from Oberammergau, Germany, after a period of one year of interruption due to anti-Covid-19 measures.
The officer was invited to give lectures and to be a facilitator in the Combined Joint Operations Center Course (P3-53-A-21) between 22 – 26.03.2021. The course had 41 participants from 17 countries (15 NATO member states and 2 partners) who studied mainly the NATO organisation for crisis and operations management, the role and missions of the various operations management centers at the strategic level (CCOMC-SHAPE), operational level (CJOC -JFCNP and JFCBR, JOC-KFOR HQ) and tactical (AIRCOM-AOC, MARCOM-MOC), as well as some specific areas of work in CJOC (Join Personnel Recovery, NATO IT tools for managing operations, Joint Targeting and Legal considerations). The last part of the course was covered by an exercise coordinated by Col. (r.) Dr. Ioniță, supported by an expert from JFCNP, which was very well appreciated by the students and during which they were divided into 6 syndicates (CJOC Nucleu type), each having to develop annexes of the CJOC SOP and solve an incident / event.
Col (r) Dr. Crăișor-Constantin IONIȚĂ will also participate in the next Course iteration that will take place in November this year, if the anti-Covid-19 measures cease.
