During the first phase an introductory course on Conventional Arms Control and Confidence and Security Building Measures (further – the course) will be developed that consists of topics such as Vienna Document, Conventional Arms Control, the OSCE Code of Conduct for Politico-Military Aspect of Security and Military Information Exchange. Before initiating all four modules of the course, a pilot learning module “Introduction to the Vienna Document” will be launched to identify the functional and technical requirements to help define the format, the content and other details that need to be taken into consideration. A face-to-face seminar is also planned to be organized to bring together delegates of the pS in Vienna and discuss the course topics. To increase expertise on practical aspects of the FSC, a second phase of the project will follow upon completion of the first one.
