The Basic Course on Civilian Crisis Management (BCCCM) applies to all roles, categories and levels and thus is independent of the specific function where the expert will be deployed. BCCCM takes into account the training requirements of various international organisations, for example:
- EU Policy on Training for CSDP and EU Civilian Training Group Strategic Guidance on CSDP Civilian Training
- UN Core Pre-Deployment Training Materials (CPTM, 2017) and in the case of police STM UNPOL (2009)
- OSCE Competency Model
CMC Finland’s BCCCM also takes note of the work done and standards established in the context of e.g. the European Security and Defence College (ESDC) and the EU-funded training projects Europe’s Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi), EU Police and Civilian Services Training (EUPCST) and EU Civilian Training Initiative (EUCTI).
Basic Course on Civilian Crisis Management (BCCCM) provides participants with the basic knowledge, skills, and capabilities needed for working as an expert in the field of Civilian Crisis Management.
