« Relying on French recognised expertise, our partnerships will develop through enhanced training capabilities in different topics. After a long period of reduction of places in military schools, France breaks this trend and will propose training for a large number of officers and non-commissioned officers from partner countries of all continents ».
The French Institute for Strategic and Operational Education (IFESO) has developed a unique set of programmes for French Armed Forces as well as countries and organizations France maintains cooperation with. These programmes make it possible to acquire and maintain joint planning and conduct of operations capability in a global crisis approach.
In addition, IFESO has a partnership with the French Command for Joint Operations (CPOIA) and the Joint Centre for Doctrine Concepts and Experiments (CICDE) in order to ensure quality and provide up-to-date education and training.
Also, IFESO provides all the Command & Control (C2) training programmes of the G5 Sahel Defence College, financed by the European Union. In this way, IFESO contributes to DCI Group’s EU/NATO development.
