SOC staff undergo refresher training with Italian army

06 February 2017

Staff from NSPA’s Southern Operational Centre recently attended Pre-Deployment Refresher Training delivered by the Italian Army “Pinerolo” Brigade trainers in early February.

The training covered five topics: combat first aid, Counter - Improvised Explosive Device and mine awareness, chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense, legal awareness, and health & safety. The instructors relied upon real-life experience as well as theory and the training incorporated the use of many training aids.

The great cooperation with the Italian Army Brigade will ensure future operational success for SOC staff and ensure the team remains deployable worldwide in support of NATO approved operations.
