Rewarding Outcome of the Higher Command Crisis Response Operations Course


Date: (26-02-2015)

The Crisis Management and Disaster Response Centre of Excellence (CMDR COE) successfully conducted the pilot Higher Command Crisis Response Operations Course from 24th to 26th of February 2015.

The aim of the course was to introduce the attendees to the competences and tools, enabling successful application of solutions in response to crisis in national or international environment.

The objectives were fully covered over the course of three days which resulted in common understanding on NATO Crisis Management and Political-Military relations and armed the participants with proper tools for management of main activities connected to Political-Military Estimate at Strategic Level.

The participants list included experts with extensive experience and knowledge from the two NATO Joint Force Commands in Brunssum and Naples; U.S. EUCOM; Romanian Ministry of Internal Affairs; Bulgarian Defence Staff, Joint Forces Command and Services Command; Bulgarian Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Interior, Bulgarian Red Cross, as well as representatives from "G.S. Rakovski" National Defence College.

The voice of experience was brought to the attendees by guest-speaker Mr. David Paton with the gracious support of OAKAS Ltd. This provided added value and complemented the theoretical point of view, presented by the lecturers. Practical point of view of a current crisis was provided, which further enhanced the apprehension of the audience. Special appreciation and gratitude to Associate Professor Mila Serafimova for conducting the practical task related to Strategic Communications.

The results from the end of course test, compared to the initial test, reveals significant improvement and increase of the knowledge of the participants.

In the final survey, number of the participants demonstrated thorough interest in Disaster Response. Therefore, CMDR COE is planning to design a course corresponding to that interest.
