Finnish Defence Forces International Centre FINCENT

Finnish Defence Forces International Centre (FINCENT) since 2001; formerly the UN Training Centre, founded in 1969. NATO/PfP Training Centre since 2001 (Nowadays NATO Partnership Training and Education Centre, PTEC).

FINCENT handed over the national responsibility for crisis management operations to the Pori Brigade in January 2008. FINCENT functions were transfered to Hyrylä in Tuusula and courses in new premises started in September 2008. 

The new task enables FINCENT to concentrate purely on courses, seminars and exercises within the framework of the UN, NATO, NATO/Partnership and the EU. 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.
