The first edition of Crisis Management and Disaster Response five day course delivered in Advanced Distributed Learning Format within 22 to 26 June 2020 from the virtual studio of the Center.
The aim of this online event was to provide the attendees with basic knowledge to NATO Crisis Management, NATO Crisis Response System, its complementary elements - NATO Crisis Management Process, Civil Emergency Planning and Operations Planning and Building Resilience through Civil Preparedness.
The Crisis Management and Disaster Response course is the Center’s overarching course giving the whole picture of the Crisis and Disaster Management processes within the International community and particular – in NATO. The interest in this course increases with each iteration.
The course participants highly appreciated the lectures of guest instructors from OSDIFE (Observatory on Security and CBRN Defense) – Mr Stefano Scaini and from the ERCC (Emergency Response Coordination Center) – Mr Petar Bonev.
All the trainees received a profound knowledge on the Crisis and Consequence Management of CBRN and IED (Improvised Explosive Devices) threats, and in addition they got the perspective on how the most powerful international organizations contribute to managing disaster response complexity all over the world.
The course was attended by representatives of different civil and military structures and institutions from Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Jordan, Poland, Spain and Ukraine.
The course objectives were achieved and complemented by detailed and productive teamwork, being a challenge for the attendees to learn how to implement the team tasks in a virtual classroom reality.
As a consequence of COVID 19 pandemic, CMDR COE has planned to develop all its courses in an advanced distributed learning format and with this course it proved to be very productive.
