Multinational Staff Officer Course

This Course was the first to be established in MSOC. Initially it was designed as a three-week Operational Course for staff officers. In 2004, the Operational Course was renamed the Multinational Staff Officer Course due to the increased participation of Ukrainian officers in different PSO. Many of them served as staff officers at HQ level (multinational brigade and multinational division).

The Course training purpose is to prepare students to serve as multinational staff at the brigade and higher level and thus, to improve interoperability between the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other countries in UN-led PKO and NATO-led PSO levels.

The Multinational Staff Officer Course training concept is based on 3 phases:
