In many ways, JAWS is the opposite of JCWS. Small number of students (41 in the current class); long duration (11 ½ months); and instead of producing graduates an understanding of joint planning capable of serving in on a joint planning team, JAWS graduates are intended to fill critical positions leading Campaign Planning Cells at the various COCOMs and on the Joint Staff. The JAWS educational experience in intense. Students earn a Master’s Degree in Joint Campaign Planning and Strategy; each student does an extensive amount of reading and research; prepares and defends a thesis; individually writes a comprehensive planning directive and as part of a group develops an entire campaign plan .The curriculum is focused on the areas shown on the slide.Other Key Points:- Only Joint Advance Planning School- Key provider of joint/multinational/interagency planners- Graduates sought by CCDR’sSince 2004, 200+ Graduates42 students currently enrolled

11CJSCI 1805.01A Enlisted Professional Military Education Policy (EPMEP) CJCS sponsored and authorized courseSigned by General Pace on 28 Oct 2005, reaffirmed 20 Sep 2011Purpose: “Circulates the policies, procedures, objectives, and responsibilities for enlisted professional military education (EPME) and enlisted joint professional military education (EJPME).”Applicability: Joint Staff, National Defense University (NDU), and the Military ServicesPolicy: “Our overarching goal is to educate and train the right person for the right task at the right time. We can not wait until an individual is placed into a leadership position before providing the proper education and training. This is especially true today; the War on Terrorism requires [NCOs] from all Services to work in the joint environment more often than they have ever before. It is imperative that we expand “jointness” to all appropriate levels in our Armed Forces.”
