Twelfth Basic Training in Tunisia completed

Lighting up operational areas, shifting loads, or working with cutters and splayers: all of these skills were being practiced in the twelfth Basic Training course in Tunisia, which came to an end last week. At the same time there was a Team Management Course (TMC) taking place on the issue of flooding.

Over the course of two weeks, Tunisian trainers at the civil protection training centre “Ecole Nationale de la Protection Civile” (ENPC) in Ben Arous taught the basics of disaster management to a group of some 40 volunteers from the volunteer association in Monastir. The “Office Nationale de la Protection Civile” (OPNC) trainers had attended a previous train-the-trainer course hosted by the THW local section Osnabrück in Germany to learn about the most important aspects of training volunteers. Seven THW operatives from Germany travelled to Tunisia to serve as mentors during the volunteer training.

The German Foreign Office has been assisting the THW project work in Tunisia since 2012. The THW is working closely with the ONPC and assisting the establishment and further development of volunteer-based structures in the Tunisian civil protection sector. This assistance is provided in the form of materials, vehicles and training courses.

Parallel to this Basic Training course, a TMC on the issue of flooding was held in Tunisia, as part of the EU-funded project “Increasing Preparedness Capacities Across the Mediterranean” (IPCAM). The Tunisian participants were 26 volunteers and 4 ONPC trainers. It included group sessions and lectures on issues such as reconnaissance at operation sites, operational planning and various flooding scenarios. Eight THW operatives were joined by one Belgian and one Italian colleague to conduct the special training course.
