In June, 2013, the Public Affairs Regional Centre (PARC) became the twenty sixth Partnership Education and Training Centre (PTEC) by meeting the criteria of the NATO concept for PTECs. PARC is the only PTEC which is specialized in training and education in the area of public affairs.
Upon obtaining the status of NATO PTEC, the training offered in PARC, in accordance with the NATO PTEC concept, became available to all NATO and PfP countries, the Mediterranean Dialogue countries and the Istanbul Initiative, as well as the rest of the partner countries. In the training catalogue for 2014, PARC offers two basic Public Affairs courses to the NATO PCM menu, available to all abovementioned countries.
In order to maintain the regional cooperation, apart from these courses, other workshops, courses and seminars have been planned in the field of public affairs, communication skills, media training and crisis communications as well as training and education of media trainers. In 2014, the process of NATO accreditation of certain courses in the centre is to commence.
