The next ACO Public Affairs Web Management and Standards course will be held at
online on October 13 and October 14, 2020. Different from the normal two day face-to-face course at SHAPE, Belgium, this course will be a ONE day
online course on both days. In your registration, please indicate on which day you are available to attend or if you are available either day. The registration will be open until October 6, 16:00 CET. After closing the registration, we will address all accepted webmasters individually with further information on the course/joining instructions itself.
As all of our command websites are now upgraded using the new Web Content Management System (CMS), the course is a valuable and important learning opportunity to renew our capabilities in managing our websites. The course will cover the basics of the new CMS and also focus on our content strategy and common writing standards.
The end goal of the course is to ensure consistent publishing standards across all Allied Command Operations websites and all other websites within NATO that have joined the ACO website synchronisation initiative.
Our websites are our primary window to the outside world and must therefore be professional, consistent and adhere to ACO policy at all times. The course is hosted by e-Forum Factory Company augmented by SHAPE staff. The firm is responsible for the design and maintenance of our websites.
Be advised that it is ACO Policy for ALL of webmasters and editors to be formally trained.
