The 5-day pre-deployment training course is addressed to experts selected to be deployed to international missions in Georgia. The course provides the selected mission members with a preparatory orientation prior to the deployment by focusing on the following themes:

  • Georgia’s history, culture and current political situation;
  • International presence in Georgia: key actors and coordination systems;
  • Specific skills such as monitoring and reporting needed in the missions;
  • Practical matters related to living and working in Georgia.

By focusing on country-specific and function-specific issues, the course aims at equipping participants with essential knowledge and information, enabling them to become active team members and to operate smoothly in their respective area of assignment. The course provides with an opportunity to get first-hand information from Georgia and network with the future mission colleagues.
