Belgian Generic Training (BGT) on Civilian Crisis Management

Concept

Candidates interested in working for an Civilian Crisis Management Mission or international Peace-building Mission are invited to follow our  2-week Basic Generic Training / Core Course that will be organised from 9-20 October 2017.
In collaboration with experienced trainers and expert speakers, participants will be provided with the basic knowledge and skills required for working in a field operation, independent of the specific function they will fulfill as experts in their own fields.

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

Target Group: Professionals with a relevant educational and professional background. Experts should be ready to be deployed in CCM missions for a minimum of 1 year!     The course is open mainly to Belgian participants, but depending on the number and profiles of BE candidates, a limited number of experts from other EU MS can be accepted. A maximum of 20 candidates can participate per session. Each entity engaged in the organisation of the course is responsible for the selection of their own candidates.

There is no registration fee. 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.
