Belgian Generic Training (BGT) on Civilian Crisis Management

Call:

Candidates interested in working for a Civilian Crisis Management (CCM) Mission or international peace-building mission are invited to follow our  two-week Belgian Generic Training (Core Course) that will be organised from 19 to 30 March 2018.

In collaboration with experienced trainers and expert speakers, participants will be provided with the basic knowledge and skills required to work in a field mission, regardless of the specific function they will fulfill in international peace operations.

This integratedtraining is in line with the latest EU training standards and compulsory for deployment. It regroups federal police officers, magistrates, civil servants of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and external experts.  Its objective is to get a pool of trained personnel liable for possible deployment.

Target Group: The course is open mainly to Belgian participants, but depending on the number and profiles of Belgian candidates, a limited number of experts from other EU Member States may be accepted.  Participants are professionals with a relevant educational and professional background. Experts should be prepared for deployment in a CCM mission for a minimum of one year.

The course is organized twice a year jointly by the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Egmont Institute, with the support of the Belgian Federal Police and the Ministry of Justice. The first pilot BGT took place in March 2009.
