Peace Operations Training Centre (POTC) is organizing a Pre-deployment Training for Civilian Personnel Joining the EUAM Ukraine and EUMM Georgia. The training will, due to COVID-19 restrictions, take place virtually from 20 – 23 April 2021.

The pre-deployment training course is one of the primary tools used to generate competent, institutionally knowledgeable, and ethically aware civilian personnel capable of serving in dangerous and complex environments. This training will be mission-specific, focusing on the European Union Advisory Mission in Ukraine (EUAM) and the European Union Monitoring Mission in Georgia (EUMM), designed for police and civilians that will be potentially deployed to one of the above-mentioned missions. The training is intended to provide a shared understanding of the environment and both missions, including cross-cutting themes and priorities such as gender mainstreaming and the development of basic skills, such as map reading, monitoring – mentoring – advising and skills of a good trainer.

After successfully completing the training, the new civilian staff members will be prepared to undertake assigned responsibilities with confidence and adapt to complex mission life.
