ARCP Non-Technical Survey Course – Middle East Region

The Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) and the Lebanon Mine Action Center (LMAC), in the context of the Arab Regional Cooperation Programme (ARCP), are organising a Regional NTS in Mine Action Training, that will take place from 25 March to 6 April in Lebanon. The workshop will be held in both Arabic and English.

Non-Technical Survey (NTS) is the most critical step within the land release process. The purpose of NTS is to gather evidence of contamination so that subsequent technical survey and/or clearance assets can more effectively and efficiently reduce and clear land. Poor NTS is usually overly conservative, resulting in the generation of excessively large Suspected Hazardous Areas. 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.
