Resident Courses

Resident Courses

Different courses / modules have been created by NMIOTC and accredited by ACT.

The offered courses are grouped to nine categories and are executed through classroom indoctrination and proceeds to the gradual practical training.

Partner Nations’ forces receive the same training as NATO forces, according to guidelines and doctrine contained in: Bi-SC Education and Individual Training Directive (E&ITD) 075-007, ATP-71 Allied Maritime Interdiction Operations, NMIOTC Lessons Learnt and Best Practices collection, always properly sanitized from a security point of view.
