The Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) in coordination with the Directorate of Mine Action Coordination (DMAC) is organising an NTS in Mine Action Training, that will take place from the 15th to the 26th of November in Kabul.
Since Non-Technical Survey (NTS) is the most critical step within the land release process and poor NTS is usually overly conservative, resulting in the generation of excessively large Suspected Hazardous Areas. Therefore, this NTS training planned for Afghanistan aims to improve the quality of NTS by better understanding the role of NTS within the land release process and develop the core skills required to better conduct, manage and improve NTS operations in Afghanistan.
Quality NTS is the foundation for successful land release operations. This course is designed to equip students with the ability to identify, gather, record and verify evidence of contamination. The course will have a specific focus on conducting NTS in environments contaminated with IEDs.
The course will be in Dari.
The objective of this course is to provide field staff and supervisors with the necessary skills to successfully carry out effective NTS operations. The following topics will be covered:
Student Arrival in Kabul: 14.11.2020
First Day of Training: 15.11.2020
Last Day of Training and end of course dinner: 26.11.2020
Departure: by 27.11.2020
Please note that this course is exclusively for Afghanistan. Only participants nominated and agreed with DMAC will be accepted.
The GICHD is committed to gender equality, inclusivity, and providing equal opportunities. Women, and persons with disabilities are particularly encouraged to apply. If you need this information in an alternative format, please contact us and we’ll do our best to arrange it for you.
