Multinational CIMIC Group specialists are ready to take over the personnel of the civil-military cooperation cells in international missions
Motta di Livenza, May, 14th 2021
From 21 April to 14 May, the CIMIC Mission Specific Preparation Course, a training activity in favour of civil-military cooperation specialized personnel who are soon to be employed in operational scenarios, was held at the Mario Fiore Barracks in Motta di Livenza, headquarters of the Multinational CIMIC Group.
The aim of the course was to refine the preparation of CIMIC operators with particular reference to the technical-tactical procedures of each mission and area of operation, also in consideration of the different contexts of employment in the UN, EU, NATO and national contexts, from the Horn of Africa to Lebanon.
The course, divided into three phases, provided the specific and essential elements to be able to operate successfully in different cultural / operational contexts: lessons on the planning and conduct of CIMIC activities, on the Joint Operational Command CIMIC Platform and on the international operations mandates were the focus of the training program. The latter, in fact, was developed thanks to the lessons identified and learned by the various contingents and each lesson was held by an operator who had recently came back from international environments who performed the function of Mentor in order to guide and prepare the staff soon to be deployed.
This activity, part of the NATO educational offer, is carried out cyclically by the CIMIC Battalion operators, and allows harmonizing the hand-over/take-over of the Multinational CIMIC Group staff, also allowing a smooth transition among the transferring personnel and the incoming one.
