The Dean of the Joint and Combined Warfighting School is CAPT Bowers who will discuss JCWS. Note: If CAPT Bowhers or a JCWS rep isn’t available, the briefer could follow this script: JCWS is what has evolved from the original 5 ½ month course. Today, this 10-week course is conducted four times each year. Each JCWS course has quota for 210 U.S. personnel, 30 International Fellows, and 15 civilian interagency students.

4 Commandant Briefing: First Draft
Joint Advanced Warfighting School Joint Professional Military Education Single Phase (JPME I & II) SLC Educates military & national security professionals as experts in joint planning processes; capable of critical analysis in the application of all aspects of national power 11- month school - Grants Masters of Science in Joint Campaign Planning & Strategy (accredited) 60-70 page individually prepared thesis with oral defense Two-hour individual oral comprehensive exam 3 Seminars of Students: Service, Interagency, and Multinational mix 32 U.S. Officers, 7 Civilians, and 2 International Fellows Focus Foundations in History and Theory of War Strategic Foundations (National Security & Military Strategy) Operational Art and Campaigning (Commander’s Design) Adaptive Planning (practicum, simulation, exercises) and Decision-making Cultural Awareness and Future Warfighting Concepts Maximize Subject Matter Experts and Senior Fellows The Dean of the Joint Advanced Warfighting School is CAPT Fish who will discuss JAWS. Note: If the Dean wasn’t available, briefer would generally follow the script: Our next School is JAWS. 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’s Since 2004, 200+ Graduates 42 students currently enrolled

CJCS sponsored and authorized course Signed by General Pace on 28 Oct 2005, reaffirmed 20 Sep 2011 Purpose: “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 Services Policy: “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.”

15 AJPME Background Title 10 USC, Chapter 38, Section 666 (1986 G/N Act)
“The Secretary of Defense shall establish personnel policies emphasizing education and experience in joint matters for reserve officers not on the active-duty list. Such policies shall, to the extent practicable for reserve component, be similar to the policies [for the AC].” Congress (1999 Defense Authorization Act) “directs that a course similar in content to, but not identical to, the in- residence Joint Forces Staff College course” “periods of in residence training, as well as distance learning, present the best combination of academic rigor, cohort development, and cross- service acculturation” Funding – 2002 / Implementation Joint Qualification System – Oct 2007 15

16 AJPME Requirements To Attend: To Graduate: JPME Phase I Completed
Nominated by Service/Agency, most hold boards to select attendees USMCR, USAR, USN, AFR, and National Guard Expected to use AJPME for JQO education requirements Joint Operational experience desired Attendance & Participation Max 10% Absence during F2F Online collaboration mandatory Three Short Answer / Essay Exams Two Papers Joint Information/Position Paper Joint Research Paper: page Boards meet annually at each Component and the Services decide who attends and when? 16

17 AJPME Curriculum Flow 10-02 & OPMEP

18 Fulfills the educational requirement for JQO Level III
AJPME Student Outcome Graduates are able to lead joint planning efforts, integrate the creativity of operational art with the analytical and logical process of operational design, and be proficient with Design and the Joint Operation Planning Process (JOPP) as the application framework to develop theater strategies and operational plans in a complex global operating environment. Fulfills the educational requirement for JQO Level III 18

19 AJPME Class Schedule
New schedule offer classes only 4 times per year, as opposed to old schedule which offered classes 8 times per year. Less classes w/same amount of students equals more/better acculturation and greater efficiencies as it relates to the other JFSC schools and support.
