The 2nd “Train the Trainers” Course Closing Ceremony was held in “General Dhagabadan Training Camp” in Mogadishu on the 16th of November. All twelve Somali National Army (SNA) trainees finished the twelve-week Course with success.

During the comprehensive activity EUTM-S personnel taught military subjects, among others leadership, motivation, human rights and law of armed conflict. The SNA trainees carried out activities in the fields of counter IED (Improvised Explosive Device) and FIBUA (Fighting in Built Up Areas) and, finally, learnt the most important and difficult skill to accomplish: how to train soldiers.

The training activity is still one of the cornerstones of the Mission’s activities and with such courses EUTM-S aims to provide the Somali Armed Forces with the knowledge to set up its own training system.
