The Forge

By The Cove December 18, 2019

The Forge is the Australian Defence Force's online hub for Joint PME. It exists to build and hone the intellectual edge of members operating within the Profession of Arms.

This innovative approach to military education is being delivered by the Australian Defence College (ADC), an institution which facilitates the professional mastery of members of the Defence organisation.

The site is structured so that it supports continuous learning in key areas of the Continuum of Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) for officers and interested national security stakeholders. The four core study areas include areas of National security policy and strategyCommand, leadership and ethicsJoint Warfare and Technology and capability.

Well worth checking out, especially if you want to rise above the tactical into the operational and strategic levels of command and explore PME from a joint and whole-of-government perspective.
