CBRN EMERGENCY MEDICINE TRAIN THE TRAINER (TTT) COURSE380/440
10 Oct 2022 - 21 Oct 2022
The Science and Technology Centre in Ukraine (STCU), jointly with the LEPL Emergency Situation Coordination and Urgent Assistance Centre in Tbilisi, hosted a workshop “CBRN EMERGENCY MEDICINE TRAIN THE TRAINER (TTT) COURSE”. The workshop was held October 10-21, 2022; in the Radisson Blue Hotel, Tbilisi, Georgia, under the framework of the European Union Centres of Excellence (CoE) Project 088 entitled, “Strengthening of CBRN Medical Preparedness and Response Capabilities in SEEE countries”. The SEEE region includes the Republic of Albania, the Republic of Armenia, the Republic of Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, the Republic of Northern Macedonia, the Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, the Republic of Serbia, and Ukraine. This project is implemented by STCU and funded by the European Commission’s Foreign Policy Instrument.
This training course was designed to give delegates the knowledge and skills to work safely in a CBRN environment and as well as to train their colleagues at home. After a week of studying theory at the Radisson, the delegates then underwent a week of practical training which was conducted at the Emergency Situation Coordination and Urgent Assistance Centre in Georgia. A primary goal of the practical training is to ensure that the participants can conduct similar but shorter practical courses for their colleagues at home. In the future, trainees in each home country will include participants from various government and private agencies such as:
• First Line CBRN Emergency Medicine Responders for Pre-Hospital management of CBRN Emergency Medical Preparedness and Response Operations
• Second Line CBRN Emergency Medicine responders for Hospital management of CBRN Emergency Medical Preparedness and Response Operations
• Managers at these same institutions
• Para- medical personnel
• Medical personnel
Members of the P088 training team will work with all participants “side by side” as they set up and run their initial training courses in their own national CBRN Emergency Medicine Training Centres which will also be equipped as part of the scope of the project.
