Jordan BSC


From the 19th of September to the 19th of October, 2018, a Mobile Training Team (MTT) of seven members coming from the NATO Counter IED Centre of Excellence (C-IED CoE), Hungary, Ireland, Greece and Romania were deployed to the Kingdom Of Jordan under the umbrella of the project “Comprehensive Package for strengthening Jordanian C-IED defense capabilities” sponsored by NATO Science for Peace and Security Program (SPS). The MTT delivered for four weeks, the first iteration of an Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) Basic Search and Clearance Course &T3 to a group of 15 Jordanian military personnel composed by Officers, Non-commissioned Officers (NCOs) and enlisted personnel with different backgrounds, with the purpose of introducing the training audience to NATO concepts related to the basic search and clearance of IEDs and teaching skills to become a Train the Trainers as a part of the fight against the IED threat. During the course the attendees took theoretical and practical lessons that provided them with additional knowledge on the matter, thus improving their capability to fulfil their tasks in a demanding environment according to the challenges and problems of different clearance situations and to improve their skills as future Train the Trainers. The course was also a good framework to exchange experiences between the MTT and the attendees and to get a better understanding of each other’s procedures and techniques. The MTT enjoyed cooperating with their Jordanian comrades during those four weeks and were impressed by their level of professionalism as well as their hospitality and friendship. This positive atmosphere facilitated the MTT’s job and as a direct consequence the results of the course were exceptional.
