European Union External Action

Mission staff receive final training before deployment

PDT is vital to the maintenance of a common organisational standard for all personnel and helps to develop a common organisational culture. It is linked to the duty of care, as well as ensuring the accountability and credibility of the EU, including through generic standards of behaviour and a code of conduct.

The training was held at the European Security and Defence College in Brussels.

Civilian experts, police officers and military personnel, including the future commander of EUTM CAR, all received the same training, which helps to foster a common understanding of European security and organisational matters. The diversity of the training audience perfectly reflected mission reality on the ground.
