This one-week course is comprised of interactive lectures, briefings, moderated Q&A sessions, practical exercises and tests. Students must achieve at least an 80% on all exercises and tests.
The N3-17 NATO Joint Targeting Staff Course is a pre-requisite for any other JTIC course (N3-97, N3-139 & N3-140).
Students that have successfully passed N3-17 after 1 January 2015 may register for other JTIC courses through NSO Student Admin offices.
Students that have successfully passed N3-17 before 1 January 2015 must provide a valid certificate of accomplishment to NSO for approval.
Once the certificate is approved, the student will then be notified to continue the registration process with NSO Student Admin and the student will be expected to take a Bypass test online (through NSWAN/BICES) or during the next attendance of a JTIC course.
The Bypass test verifies the student obtains the foundational Targeting knowledge to be prepared for other JTIC courses. Students who do not pass the Bypass test will not receive a certificate of accomplishment for ANY JTIC courses until they successfully pass the N3-17.
