Joint Force Maritime Component Commander and Combined Force Maritime Component Commander are the third courses in a series of three Professional Military Education courses. The Navy's JFMCC/CFMCC Flag courses are executive level PME/JPME for U.S. (JFMCC) and International (CFMCC) flag and general officers. The courses are designed to prepare them for theater-level combat leadership and to give them a broad perspective of operational and strategic levels of war. The College runs two or three annually. JFMCC courses are normally held in Newport, and the CFMCC courses are conducted at the site of a regional headquarters for U.S. forces.
