The King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Center (KASOTC) is an installation located in Amman, Jordan that specializes in the latest counter-terrorism, special operations and irregular warfare tactics, techniques and procedures. The base was built by a U.S. construction firm on land donated by the King of Jordan and paid for by the U.S. Defense Department Foreign Military Sales programme, part of the 2005 special appropriation. Management of the construction was undertaken by the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
By 2009, King Abdullah II of Jordan's vision for making Jordan home to an excellent International Counter Terrorism Training Center became a reality. The center is managed by experienced active and retired special forces personnel and qualified training staff.
