The College of Maritime Operational Warfare (CMOW) at U.S. Naval War College is dedicated to improving the leadership capabilities of Navy commanders, as well as to help Navy staff members function cohesively in maritime operations centers.
CMOW offers a number of short-term professional development programs at our Newport campus and abroad. Geared toward intermediate and senior officers, our professional military education (PME) courses support combat readiness at the operational level of war. In addition to preparing military leaders, CMOW also offers special programs for international navies and civilians which focus on collaboration during global times of need.
This 12-week course provides international naval officers the skills needed to support the planning and execution of maritime operations and integrate with existing operational planning teams.
The Professional Military Education courses are rooted in ethics and character development. We help commanders better lead their forces and more effectively manage maritime operations.
The College of Maritime Operational Warfare aims to improve the capability of Navy commanders to lead maritime, joint, and multinational forces.
The Rochefort Group provides tailored engagement support and education for our student base across information warfare mission areas and operational level of war functions.
