NATO Codification Course for Communications Systems.

Course Title: NATO Codification Course, for Communications Systems.

Course Description: The NATO Codification Course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the NATO Codification System (NCS) and its application in the defense realm, and also the commercial communications manufacturing industry.

The NATO Codification Course is based on our trainer’s experience of NATO Codification within the Space Communications Industry.

The course will cover the basic principles of NATO Codification, including item identification, classification, and cataloging, as well as the use of the NATO Supply Classification (NSC) system.

Participants will learn about the benefits and importance of codification, the roles and responsibilities of codification personnel, and the various tools and systems used in the codification process.

The course will also cover the relationship between codification and logistics, and the integration of codification into the wider defense procurement process.
