The United States continues support to the Georgian Defence Forces in its mission to build interoperability with allied and partnered nations. This week, the Joint Training and Evaluation Center conducted the semi-annual International Observer, Coach, Trainer Course (I/OCT Course) with participants from Georgia, Sweden, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Lithuania, and the United States. The I/OCT Course fully supports NATO interoperability by increasing the number and quality of OC/Ts for multinational training exercises up to the battalion unit level.
