Education & Training

We provide two in-house courses and one in distance form yearly. The first one is NATO Computer Assisted Exercise Specialist Certification Course. The course aim is to create a pool of experts that are used to support NRF qualification exercises, like Juncture / Trident Series. The second one is NATO M&S Basic Course and provides the audience with the consistent information about M&S assets, procedures, technologies and military use. NATO ADL M&S Cadet Course is an introduction into M&S domain in distance learning form  that is required to attend prior NATO M&S Basic Course.    

We organize two main events yearly. NATO CAX Forum is focused on technical items and operating procedures related to simulation - based exercises and training support, in order to promote the exchange of information and best practices among the Staffs of NATO and National simulation/training centers. Modelling and Simulation for Autonomous Systems Workshop is an Inter-domain and Interdisciplinary exchange between M&S and Robotics that scout the use of M&S to integrate Systems with Autonomous Capabilities in Operational Scenarios and to support Coalition Interoperability.


The NATO M&S COE is dedicated to the promotion of M&S in support of operational requirements, training and interoperability. The Centre will act as a catalyst for transformation through the involvement of NATO, governments, academia, industry, operational and training entities, by improving the networking of NATO and nationally owned M&S systems, the cooperation between Nations and organisations through the sharing of M&S information and developments and serving as an international source of expertise for transformation in the related domain.
