The Armoured Corps Training Centre (German: Ausbildungszentrum Panzertruppen) in Munster is one of the German Army's training centres (Zentren des Heeres) with particular responsibility for the basic and continuation training of armoured troops, including the armoured and the mechanized infantry corps of the German Army. By tradition, the centre is nicknamed the Armoured Corps School (Panzertruppenschule) whose tasks it partly subsumed on 1 October 2007.
