PfP Training and Education Centers

A PfP Training and Education Center (PTC) is a national training facility in a NATO Allied or Partner country, recognized by NATO as such in accordance with the terms of the NATO Concept for PfP Training Centres.  By national decision, a PTC conducts PfP-related education and training activities that are made available to all Allies and Partners and may include workshops, courses, or seminars or training of a more operational character, such as military exercises.

The PTC’s proposed education and training activities should fall within the overall scope of PfP and support its objectives; in particular, they should enhance Allies/Partner interoperability.  In addition, PfP activities at the PTC will be transparent and open to all members of the PfP and should aim to promote national and/or regional initiatives, without creating dividing lines.  Finally, in order to avoid duplication of efforts and resources, the PTC should, as far as possible, contribute and conform to a regional and functional spread of training facilities.
