Methodology

This one-week course is comprised of lectures and a syndicate exercise. Day 1 is combined with the M4-92 NATO Movement and Logistics Operational Planning Course and M4-94 NATO Logistics Course and is primarily focused on creating a baseline understanding of NATO Logistic fundamentals and the Joint Logistic Support Group (JLSG) within the strategic and operational environment. The Day 2 focus shifts to NATO movement structures, processes and doctrine, together with examination of logistic information systems tools and the role of specific NATO movement organisations including planning groups in civil emergency planning, a subject further expanded within the land, sea and air domains with a series of presentations on Day 3. A syndicate exercise is run during Day 4 in order to explore and practise movement planning fundamentals within a limited emergency relief scenario. Day 5 comprises a series of supplementary movement considerations, such as dangerous goods or lessons-learnt from a multinational perspective.
