Training courses

The SWISSINT Training Centre is in charge of mission-specific training of Swiss military personnel for voluntary service abroad in peacekeeping operations. To ensure target oriented training, the Training Centre has a staff that is operationally expe­rienced and proficient in several languages. The operation-specific training sequences are checked and evaluated after each course to ensure that theo­retical knowledge and practical skills for peacekeeping operations abroad are taught as effectively as possible. Some courses provide the option to study topics surrounding peace support and are also open to civilians and guests from abroad. Furthermore, a specific security-training course is offered once a year to civilian partners such as international organisations (IOs), governmental organisations (GOs) and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). The SWISSINT Training Centre is an accredited «Partnership Training and Education Centre».
