Peacekeeping Brigade engineering personnel improving skills

8 June, 2018
The graduation ceremony of the three-week training for Level 1 specialists in detecting and neutralising explosive devices was held at the MOD Peacekeeping Brigade’s Zar Training Centre on 8 June.

The goal of the training, conducted by US specialists, was to improve the skills of the Brigade’s engineering personnel by using up-to-date equipment when detecting and neutralising explosive devices in the territory of Armenia and when carrying out international missions, as well as to train engineer instructors.

At the end of the course, the US Armed Forces European Command handed over to the Armenian Ministry of Defence a set of up-to-date technical equipment used during the training.

The training and the technical assistance are part of a US Armed Forces European Command implemented long-term programme aimed at training specialists for detecting and neutralising explosive devices in Armenia and building sufficient capacity for those purposes.
