AKIPRESS.COM - Ten border officers from the Afghan Border Police and ten Tajik Border Troops completed a three-week training of trainers course on July 26, the OSCE reported.
The course was organized under the Patrol Programming and Leadership project of the OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe.
The train-the-trainers course was designed for a limited number of border officers who had previously attended the basic patrol leadership course so that they could teach and transfer the gained knowledge further within their respective services and training institutions.
During the course Tajik and Afghan officers learned about the methods and techniques for developing curricula, programmes and lesson plans, conducting training sessions and conducting their own train-the-trainers course. Other topics covered by the course included public speaking skills, programme planning and the principles of active learning. The participants were also introduced to pathfinding methodologies, military topography and first-aid training as well as the preparation and delivery of practical training activities using technical equipment.
At the graduation ceremony, Vyacheslav Abramets, Border Management Adviser at the OSCE Office’s Politico-Military Department, said: “The Office is helping to build the capacity of Tajik and Afghan border officers by providing high-quality training in a number of key areas. The OSCE will continue to support agencies involved in border management through providing a platform for cooperation and discussions. "
The training was led by two local experts with considerable experience in border management and adult education.
