Sixteen course participants from AUS, BEL, BIH, CZE, GRC, and POL participated in the last course at the Joint CBRN Defence Centre of Excellence in 2017.

The aim of the course was to introduce and describe Consequence Management after a CBRN Incident to NATO and Partner Nation officers and civilian equivalents. The course covered the NATO Crisis Management concept, organization, systems and procedures including Cooperation and Partnership Initiatives in CBRN Crisis and Consequence Management.

To achieve this aim, the course included theoretical briefings, discussions and syndicate work. The students appreciated the extensive knowledge and expertise of speakers from different organizations such as NATO Headquarters, the ITA Observatory on Security and CBRNe Defence (OSDIFE), the CZE Fire Rescue Service, the US Department of Energy (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), the AUT NBC-Defence School, US Defence Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Europe, the NLD Civil-Military-Interaction Command, the Dynamis Inc. USA, and finally our own Centre. The speakers shared their experience with students and were engaged in interesting discussions related to the course topic.
