CSOC 23.1

The first iteration of CSOC took place in Madrid from 27 to 31 March 2023. The attendees, originating from eleven nations (BEL, CAN, ESP, GBR, GRC, NLD, TUR, HUN, CZE, POL, ROU ), started the course with the academic foundations of countering IEDs throughout the first half of the week. From the second day the group was divided into three syndicates and was tasked to solve operational problems supporting the commander’s decisions either within the planning process or during the conduct of the operations. The twenty-four students of the course graduated succesfully.
