Domestic JTF Commander Training Course (JCTC) Handbook   [open pdf - 9MB]

"Preparing Guardsmen to become effective Joint Task Force Commanders (CJTFs) is a critical first step in securing the United States from attack through an active layered defense and responding to a wide range of challenging incidents. Initially, the National Guard Bureau (NGB) designed this course to provide potential CJTFs the knowledge and ability to plan and employ National Guard (NG) Joint Task Forces (JTFs) for homeland defense (HD) and defense support of civil authorities (DSCA). The course has become a partnership between NGB and USNORTHCOM. Specifically, the NG JTF Commander Course is designed to: 1) Develop a cadre of trained and ready leaders, able to successfully execute JTF Command Authority 2) Prepare potential CJTFs for large scale, no-notice homeland security (HS) incidents (e.g., biological attack), as well as pre-planned events 3) Prepare future joint leaders who are able to operate effectively in interagency, intergovernmental, and nongovernmental environments 4) Develop future joint leaders who can prepare staffs to accomplish joint and interagency tasks that meet the needs of the Governor and/or Combatant Commander (CCDR) "
