Case study #1
Côte d'Ivoire : training an infantry battalion for a UN mission
Duration : 9 months
Infantry battalion which is part of the Côte d’Ivoire Armed Forces (650 troops)
Corpguard Defense was commissioned by the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire to train the Staff and four combat companies of 1 BPP (Bataillon Pilote Projetable – Combat-ready Pilot Battalion).
A team made up of between 14 and 20 people, depending on each stage, conducted the training for each company in turn, in accordance with UN requirements in terms of procedures and expertise, to prepare for deployment as part of a peacekeeping operation.
Each company training cycle ended with a simulation as part of a 72-hour summary exercise involving tactical assessment, followed by a post-action analysis which allowed a genuine debrief to take place.
