For the Security of the Homelands

Established in 1999 by the three Baltic states—Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia—the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL) is a NATO accredited education and training facility, providing courses (levels 3 and 4) to officers and security-related civilian personnel from the Baltic states, their allies and partners.

BALTDEFCOL is continental Europe's only English-language professional military education (PME) institution.
