Canadian Forces Intelligence Command takes command and control of two Canadian Forces Schools
The Canadian Forces Intelligence Command (CFINTCOM) has brought the Canadian Forces School of Military Intelligence (CFSMI) and the Canadian Forces School of Meteorology (CFS Met) under its umbrella, assuming command and control of the schools from Military Personnel Command.
A Transfer of Command Authority ceremony was held 17 April, 2018 in Kingston, ON to mark the occasion and recognize this significant milestone for CFINTCOM and members of the Defence Intelligence Enterprise.
“This move will result in a better integration of skills acquisition and skills employment for the intelligence capability within the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). I am certain that the standard of excellence in training highly-skilled intelligence experts will continue in the future,” said Lieutenant-General Charles Lamarre, Commander, Military Personnel Command.
CFINTCOM now maintains full control over training content and delivery at the schools to ensure members of the intelligence community are adept in delivering effective intelligence capabilities in an ever-changing security environment.
Already, CFINTCOM is in the process of modernizing the courses offered at CFSMI, located at Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Kingston. They provide core and specialist military intelligence training to both CAF members and Department of National Defence (DND) civilian employees, graduating roughly 360 students annually.
CFS Met, which is located at 17 Wing Winnipeg, focuses on operationally-focused and scientifically-current content to train approximately 130 students annually in basic and advanced meteorology.
“As we welcome the schools to CFINTCOM, we also welcome the responsibility of advancing their training programs during a period of significant growth for the Intelligence community. It will be challenging but it also presents the opportunity to enhance our intelligence capabilities and expertise right from the beginning,” said Rear-Admiral Scott Bishop, Commander, CFINTCOM.
Each school will remain at their respective locations as lodger units.
