Army Training Command
Located in the Saxon city of Leipzig, the German Army Training Command is responsible for the overall planning and control of leadership training and follow-on training in the German Army. That includes the Army Officer School, the Army Non-Commissioned Officer School, the Army training centres, and the branch schools.
The German Army Training Command is part of the command and control organisation of the German Army. It is responsible for training in the German Army and exercises command authority over all Army schools and training facilities. Training is thus centrally coordinated and conducted in line with the principle of “single-source training”.
At the schools and training centres, future military command personnel are trained and branch-specific, course-based post-related and individual training takes place. In addition, four central training facilities are subordinated to Army Training Command, which also provide international and interagency training for all major organisational areas of the Bundeswehr. These are the Army Warfighting Simulation Centre, the Army Combat Training Centre, the Bundeswehr United Nations Training Centre and the Air Manoeuvre Training Centre.
The special characteristics of the schools, training centres and central training facilities are reflected in the structure of Army Training Command headquarters. In addition to administrative control, two training divisions assist the commander and the deputy commander in their command and control tasks to assume responsibility for specialist training in the German Army.
