SOC staff undergo pre-deployment training.

16 December 2015


Staff at the Southern Operational Centre (SOC) recently underwent a  three-day pre-deployment training session in early December in Taranto, Italy.

The training was to re-certify all deployable staff and prepare them for NATO operational missions. The training included theory and practical tests in mine awareness and Counter Improvised Explosive Devices (C-IED), battle first aid, force protection, CBRN and legal awareness. The course was delivered in English by of 10 instructors from the Italian Infantry Brigade “Pinerolo”  and was a great success for all participants. Deployable Teams are ready!
