7th Army Training Command (aka 7th ATC) was established July 1, 1976 and headquartered in Grafenwoehr, Germany. It consists of seven subordinate directorates, comprising the Grafenwoehr Training Area; the Joint Multinational Readiness Center in Hohenfels; the Joint Multinational Simulation Center in Grafenwoehr; the 7th Army Combined Arms Training Center in Vilseck; the 7th Army Noncommissioned Officer Academy in Grafenwoehr; the International Special Training Centre in Pfullendorf; and the Training Support Activity, Europe at Grafenwoehr.[1]

As of January 2006 the 7th ATC became known as the 7th Army Joint Multinational Training Command.

The JMTC serves as U.S. Army Europe's training staff, responsible for managing major training areas and serving as a focal point for all force and training modernization issues.

Specifically, the JMTC is responsible for single point management of training, including evaluation of training readiness and development of concepts and requirements. Individual training, including both skill-producing and career-enhancing courses, is also provided. Recent range upgrades give USAREUR the finest and most modern firing ranges and maneuver areas in the U.S. Army.

The responsibility to provide community support for JMTC installations belongs to U.S. Army Garrison Grafenwoehr. More than 15,000 soldiers and civilian employees and 9,500 family members make up the JMTC.
