Further Information

he N3-17 NATO Joint Targeting Staff Course or any national NATO-approved joint targeting course is a pre-requisite for any other JTIC course (N3-97, N3-139 & N3-140). Students that have successfully passed N3-17 or any national NATO-approved joint targeting course have met this pre-requisite. The JTIC ByPass Test no longer exists and is not required for students with the N3-17 course prior to 2015 or NATO-approved national joint targeting courses, based on SACT’s decision of 07 Dec 2018.
Students that have completed a national NATO-approved joint targeting course and want to register for the other three JTIC courses need to submit their respective national course certificate with the Joining Report to the NSO Student Admin office. The national course certificate verifies the student has obtained the foundational Joint Targeting knowledge to be prepared for other JTIC courses.
