JFC Naples members conduct crisis response training with Moroccan Royal Armed Forces
KENITRA, Morocco - A mobile team from Allied Joint Force Command Naples' J5 Plans and Policy Branch conducted crisis response planning training, April 16 - 22, 2016.
The training took place north of Rabat, at the College Royal de l'Enseignement Militaire Supèrieur (CREMS). The team of three introduced more than 60 officers from the Royal Armed Forces (RAF) of Morocco to the comprehensive operational planning process.
The training familiarized the officers to roles of a Joint Operations Planning Group, either as an operational level or functional-area planner, while serving within a joint operational level headquarters. Further, the officers were presented with applications of the Comprehensive Operation Planning Directive (COPD) principles.
The introduction also focused on the structure and duties of a Joint Operation Center within the NATO structure.
"We are extremely honored to receive the JFC Naples' Mobile Training Team for such committed assistance, which is an expression of the consolidated and continuous dialogue, consultation and cooperation, within the framework of the Mediterranean Dialogue, and of the integration of the Royal Armed Forces of the Kingdom of Morocco in the interoperability platforms with NATO," said Moroccan Royal Army Brigadier General Omar Elouadoudi, CREMS Director.
As a demonstration of the value of integration and interoperability with NATO partner nations, JFC Naples has increased the amount of mobile training team (MTT) engagements over the last two years with more than 30 MTT events scheduled for 2016.
