Personnel Recovery Education & Training Center


The Joint Personnel Recovery Agency’s Personnel Recovery Training and Education Center (PRETC) was forged from the challenges identified with the recovery of isolated personnel during Operation Desert Storm. Today, PRETC supports the DoD PR mission through adaptive joint PR education and training to all levels of commanders and their staffs, through comprehensive support of the Chairman’s Exercise Program, and by providing direct operational support to Joint Operational Commands in order to meet a growing, and ever changing worldwide demand for commander and staff personnel recovery education and training.






The Joint Personnel Recovery Agency (JPRA) is a Chairman's Controlled Activity. JPRA is designated as DoD's office of primary responsibility for DoD-wide personnel recovery matters, less policy. JPRA is headquartered in Fort Belvoir, Virginia with schools located in Fredericksburg, VA and Spokane, WA.
