A brief overview of spring portion of NATO Civilans Predeployment Course

Based on agreement between NATO HQ Brussels and CZ TRADOC, three sessions of NATO Civilian Predeployment Course had took place this year already.

Warm-up lap of this year´s Predeployment course series is over

Since monday morning, the trainees underwent several traps based on the field training scenario. Its aim was to prepare them for situations which the students can experience (we hope that they will not) during their deployment.

The field training had a brand new face this year – the primary goal was to simulate a real Forward Operational Base and life on it. This included an overnight stay in the Cabin Camp in the MTA Březina completely turned into a FOB with 24/7 guarding. From there the course participants headed after their „mission tasks“.

Codename TDD U3 004

On Wednesday, Apr 9th, the Vyškov garrison had welcomed 39 participants of this year´s first course. After initial formalities the trainees were greeted by Vyškov Garrison leadership represented by TRADOC Director COL Zůna and TRADOC Training Dept. Head COL Klínovský. Both officials wished all the best to the course participants.

This year´s first course is in the last phase of preparations. The capacity of the course will be fully used. From 9th April till 16th April 2008 we expect 40 students from NATO member countries and we believe, that the quality of the course has slightly risen again. See you in Vyškov!
