The Jordanian Peace Operation Training Center (POTC)
is one of the Jordanian Armed Forces’ institutes under The Directorate
of Joint Military Training. The POTC trains and qualifies participants
from JAF, Security Departments in addition to participants from friendly
countries on various UN peace operations.
The POTC is characterized specifically with a noble humanitarian mission
that consolidates the principles of justice and supports the concept of
international peace and security.
The POTC is one of JAF’s prominent schools, so our wise leadership seeks
to make this Center a regional one through continuous support, provides
capable and professional instructors and all requirements needed to
accomplish the training process.
The POTC conducts courses that help participants carry out their tasks within international forces in the best possible way.
Similar to other international centers, the UN modern methods of training are adopted to train these courses.
At the beginning, training at The POTC focused on pre-deployment
training for Jordanian units before they are to be deployed on various
UN mission areas. After that, the training was expanded to other more
specialized training for officers. Following our worldwide operational
success, a new training strategy was developed providing course
participants with the necessary skills to work professionally and
efficiently in this new peacekeeping environment.
