NRDC-ITA coordinates the “2nd Course for Company/Battery/Squadron Commanders”

Permanent education being consolidated at the NRDC-ITA

The "Bad Company 2017" exercise has ended at the NATO Rapid Deployable Corps in Italy (NRDC-ITA), so concluding the Tactical Planning Module of the 2nd Course for Company/ Battery/ Squadron Commanders organized by the Training Command and Application School of the Army.

80 Lieutenants and Captains from the 189th and 190th Course of the Military Academy (plus 2 Officers from the US Army) attended the Course and participated in the exercise in the role of Commanders confronting themselves with both tactical deliberate planning and hasty planning (under physical stress situation, A/N). The officers had their training on tactical activities, facing hipothetical unconventional threats.


The responsibility of guiding the junior officers in the "Bad Company 2017" exercise has been assigned to the NRDC-ITA staff for the large experience and knowledge in planning and conducting joint-combined military operations: an experience this cadre of Officers are going to benefit from as soon as posted in their units.

In view of the important educational moment provided by the course in the "permanent formation" of the Army Officer, last Wednesday a delegation of top-ranking Officers had the chance to observe the "pupils" while busy with implementing procedures and putting their knowledge into practice for the solution of a military problem - and have witnessed and assessed the results of a highly significant moment of education for the Junior Officers. 

Once again, the NRDC-ITA Command demonstrates that it can also provide a major contribution for the training activities with a very high priority for the Italian Army. This newly concluded training module, based on decision-making process and tactical planning, provided the participants with the necessary knowledge and mastery of tools and procedures to properly exercise Command and Control and analyse and understand the military problem and orders from one and two hierarchical levels up.
