Joint Task Force Staff basic Course (JTFSBC)

Joint Task Force Staff Basic Course Logo

The Joint Task Force Staff Basic Course (JTFSBC) is a tailorable, doctrine-based, focused educational framework for USAF personnel and HQ elements selected to be deployed and/or employed as a JTF HQ. The objective is to enable Airmen to demonstrate the ability to execute the joint processes conducted by a JTF HQ Staff. The course addresses several educational needs that are not available in a single, “just in time” format elsewhere and prepares selected Air Force personnel to rapidly transition with their counterparts to an operation-level JTF mission and lead within the JTF HQ Staff. The curriculum is focused on processes, activities and tasks performed by JTF HQ staff with lesson materials derived from established JTF HQ Joint Mission Essential Tasks (determined by Joint Staff J7). The course is 75 hours broken into two, five-day academic periods.
