Developing new training models along NATO and EU priorities, conducting computer assisted exercises and applying lessons learned from practical experience contribute to the strengthening the individual and team readiness for crises management. However, no matter how important CAX are for the enhancement of training in the integrated security sector, practically a unified CAX management environment in civil security area is still missing. This environment would form an organizational system comprising concepts, approaches, methodologies, tools and means for effective process implementation and their improvement.
