The United Nations Bundeswehr Training Center conducts training courses for the qualification of national and international United Nations Military Experts on Mission, i.e. the UNUnited Nations military observer

German United Nations Military Observer Course (DE UNMOC)

The United Nations have been and are deploying military observers to peace missions all over the world for several decades. Internationally certified training centers with recognized courses are required to adequately prepare the personnel required for these special missions. The DEU UNUnited Nations Trg Centre is the institution that performs this demanding task on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. Since 1993, military observers and liaison officers from all over the world have been trained in Hammelburg for United Nations missions. The course participants are intensively trained in the fields of negotiation, mediation, liaison, coordination, documentation and reporting. The future “United Nations Military Observer (UNMOUnited Nations Military Observer)” have to undergo several-day exercises in open terrain, where they must demonstrate their knowledge and skills during patrolling and other mission tasks. High-ranking visitors, e.g. the former President of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2016, have repeatedly underlined the enormous importance of this training by their attendance.

The following details all pieces of information that are relevant for future participants prior to arriving at the training centre.

United Nations Military Expert on Mission Train-the-Trainer

For the optimal preparation of the future military observers and liaison officers for their task within the framework of a peace mission, it is indispensable to provide a credible, mission-experienced team of instructors who can assess from their own experience what is important for the MEoM course participants. In an effort to meet the high standards and expectations associated with this, the DEU UNUnited Nations Trg Centre therefore invites instructors from Germany and a multitude of other nations to undergo a thorough preparatory training phase to brush up and rehearse theoretical and practical training prior to the MEoM course. Thanks to the joint training, the (up to 15) individual instructors become a coherent team. The positive team spirit results in modern and motivated teaching and learning during the subsequent MEoM course.

The following details all pieces of information that are relevant for future participants prior to arriving at the training centre.

The course participants are enabled to perform their tasks as trainers and instructors for the Military Expert on Mission Course, Module 5, i.e. the United Nations Military Expert on Mission Course (UNMEoM) at the DEU UNUnited Nations Trg Centre.
