Together with the Air Force and the Land Forces, Anti-Aircraft Training Unit 33 devises the operational doctrine and the training instructions for ground-based air defence. Operations for the protection of forces, facilities and areas are carried out in a mission-oriented mixed anti-aircraft forces set-up that comprises several systems and units with its own command staff.

Anti-Aircraft Training Unit 33 is responsible for general basic training (GBT), functional basic training  (FBT), and unit training (UT) of all-weather and visual air defence, the training of mobile and light anti-aircraft guided missile and medium calibre anti-aircraft battalions, and training in refresher courses (RC). In this way, training is provided by one source and authorities responsible for doctrine can directly integrate lessons learned from the task forces into the basic training.
