This five-day course is comprised of formal lectures, followed by brief moderated question-and-answer sessions with individual exercises on various TACEVAL scenarios. Syndicate exercises are comprised of simulated scenarios to focus on refining evaluator reporting processes.

Further Information

-Students from NATO nations must hold a NATO SECRET security clearance in order to serve in TACEVAL duties as an evaluator.

-Completion of this course enhances the evaluator certification process through reducing the number of required evaluations during Under Training (UT) while ensuring the standardization of evaluations, reporting, and grading procedures throughout ACO.
