UNTAC prepares non-commissioned officers, warrant officers and officers at platoon level for primary infantry tasks in a UN led Peacekeeping Operation (PKO). The course primarily provides an opportunity for “boots on the ground” training including realistic and mission-like field exercises in a multinational environment.
The UNTAC team aims for a course that allows all participants to reach their full potential of understanding, how to act in a PK operations on tactical level, which includes obtaining a basic knowledge of the UN system, to experience and learn from other mission challenges, to comply with the expected values of the UN, to develop and improve hands-on skills with an emphasis being on UN PKO tactics and techniques. To reach those aims a high level of realism features in our training, which includes employing Swedish military veterans and actors as role-players. The students are encouraged to participate actively and exchange their opinions amongst the participants and instructors.
In addition a participant will experience to train with a multi-national unit; the dynamics of cultural diversity and the complexities that surround it.
UNTAC main reference is the United Nations Infantry Battalion Manual (UNIBAM).
