MNCG opened the 2021 educational year with the Functional Specialist Course
Motta di Livenza, February, 12th, 2021.
From 8th to 12th February, the Multinational CIMIC Group organized and conducted the Functional Specialist course in favour of military and civilians connected via web from different areas of the world. The didactic activity was aimed at instilling the participants with the basic notions of civil-military cooperation as well as the functions and tasks performed by the latter. The course was mainly aimed at the figures of functional specialists, i.e. specific and selected civilian and military personnel possessing particular skills in certain areas of interest for the Armed Forces (such as the civil administration, infrastructure, humanitarian assistance). The course is however open to all those who are interested in knowing the basic principles of civil-military cooperation.
Several participants will have the opportunity to put into practice the lessons learned as they will soon be introduced in the operational scenarios in which the Armed Forces are called to intervene, to cover tasks related to civil-military cooperation. They will therefore be ready to interface with international, governmental and non-governmental organizations in order to support the civil environment to achieve the mission's goals.
Since last year, the instructors of the Mario Fiore Barracks have reshaped the educational offer due to the Covid-19 pandemic, while maintaining high training standards even in e-learning mode.
The Multinational CIMIC Group is recognized, within the Atlantic Alliance, as a training unit for the CIMIC operational function and there are numerous requests for enrollment of students from NATO and non-NATO countries on the www.cimicgroup.org platform.
