The CBRN Unit Evaluators course was conducted from 27 – 31 May 2019. Eleven participants from 5 NATO Allies attended the course: BEL (2), CZE (6), HRV (1), ITA (1) and USA (1). The aim of the course was to prepare CBRN SMEs to achieve common understanding of CBRN Defence standards for evaluation of CBRN Defence units assigned to Combined Joined Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defence Task Force (CJ CBRND TF).
To achieve this aim, during the course several speakers delivered the most up-to-date and comprehensive lessons in accordance with the Allied Doctrine Standards (AFS) Combat Readiness Evaluation (CREVAL) Vol. VII., with the focus how to prepare and conduct CREVAL for CBRN units.
The five-day course included theoretical briefings, discussions, observations from CBRN exercises and syndicate work where the students had to solve different tasks related to CREVAL unit evaluations and procedures.
On Wednesday afternoon, 29 May, the course staff organized a study trip to the IDET 2019 exhibition (International Defence and Security Technologies Fair) in Brno where students enjoyed the variety of displayed military equipment, vehicles, weapons systems, etc.
Next iteration of CBRN Unit Evaluators course is planned in 2020. Please see also our Centre’s Training Portal for additional information about further courses organized by the Joint CBRN Defence Centre of Excellence.
