style="text-align: justify;">CSOC 18.3
From 15-19 October 2018 the C-IED Staff Officers Course (CSOC) 18.3 was conducted in the C-IED COE in Madrid. All participants completed the course successfully. This was the first iteration in which a member of a Joint Force Command was supporting the course. The course is designed for future C-IED Staff officers on an operational headquarter and the C-IED Cells of JFCBS and JFCNP do exactly that. To have a C-IED Staff Officer from a JFC as a briefer and a C-IED SME during the practical exercise was a great support for the attendees. The students did not learn only from the presentations and exercises, but now they also had the opportunty to learn from the experience and lessons learned from people actually doing the job.
