The NCFWC is conducted in parallel with the NATO CIMIC Staff Worker Course (NCSWC). Prior to the course, students are to attend on-line an initial ADL warm-up module (M1.2). Then, during the first residential week, Field Worker & Staff Worker students will jointly attend a common phase based on classroom lectures and syndicate work (M2.2). The third and final stage is the 2nd residential week, focused on field training experiences/lessons learned followed by a 3 days field training exercise based on a complex crisis in a failed State (M3). NCFWC is an evolution of the previous NCBC and tailored to the requirements of NATO and UN Crises Response Operations, Peace Keeping and modern operational environments. NCFWC provides students the opportunity to increase their CIMIC knowledge and practical skills through Syndicate work as well as better experience the CIMIC operator’s job at tactical level from a field perspective.
