Finnish Defence Forces International Centre FINCENT

The Finnish Defence Forces International Centre (FINCENT) since 2001, formerly known as the UN Training Centre, was founded in 1969 as the first peacekeeping training centre in the world.

FINCENT concentrates on courses, seminars and exercises within the framework of the UN, the EU, NATO and NATO/Partnership and the AU. Demanding and challenging training can be carried out successfully using modern training equipment and the excellent terrain for exercises conducted by professional and experienced instructors.

In 2015, FINCENT will be merged with the National Defence University, but its main tasks and functions will remain unchanged.
