Event Description

Advanced PIO (L0388)

The Advanced Public Information Officer Course provides participants the knowledge and skills to establish, manage and work within a joint information center (JIC) through multimedia lectures and individual and group activities. The
training allows participants the opportunity to apply advanced public information skills during a multi-day functional exercise (FE) designed to test the participants’ abilities to analyze, coordinate, process and create information in a fast-paced, realistic environment.
Through a tabletop exercise (TTX), participants evaluate their processes to help them generate new ideas, products, or ways of viewing challenges or situations as well as improve their processes ensuring every action has a
measurable relevance for each identified audience, including senior leadership.
