Professional Military Education Courses

The College of Maritime Operational Warfare is responsible for a series of PME courses, comprised of the Maritime Staff Operators Course (MSOC), Maritime Operational Planners Course (MOPC), the Executive Level Operational Level of War Course (ELOC), and finally the Joint Force Maritime Component Commander / Combined Force Maritime Component Commander (JFMCC/CFMCC) courses.

NWC has considerably expanded its reach in developing such expertise at the operational level of war with the establishment in 2007 of the College of Maritime Operational Warfare (CMOW).  CMOW aims to improve the capability of Navy commanders to lead maritime, joint, and multinational forces as well as improve the capability of Navy staff members to plan, execute, and assess and to function cohesively as a maritime operations center. The faculty is focused on supporting combat readiness at the operational level of war through the PME courses described  below.
