The Regiment Training Centre (RTC) over the weekend graduated 4 batches of trainees comprising 209 students who successfully completed different regiment training organised by the Centre in collaboration with the British Military Advisory Training Team (BMATT).
The latest courses include Basic Regiment Officers’ Course and Basic Regiment Airmen/Airwomen Course, both of which are designed to expose participants to theoretical and practical training in Force Protection, Weapon Handling, and Marksmanship. Others are Rigger Course for Paratrooper Instructors, and Rappelling Course specifically conducted for members of the Defence Special Force. Speaking at the combined graduation ceremony, the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar urged the graduands to continue to exhibit the expertise acquired during the training and to take advantage of the wide range of opportunities offered by the NAF to continuously sharpen their skills and knowledge in order to be adequately prepared to meet any challenge. The CAS thanked the British Government for her support to Nigeria towards fighting insurgency and other internal security challenges in the country, noting that the partnership with BMATT has continued to add value to RTC, and thus expressed the desire for greater collaboration in other areas.
