The Government of Germany since the inception of the KAIPTC has provided support to build the necessary capacities in Peace Support Operations in the region. Between the months of November to December 2022, the KAIPTC run the following courses with funding support from the German Government.


First edition of Logistics In Peace Support Operations (LogPSO) Course Held

The first edition of the Logistics in Peace Support Operations (LogPSO) Course was run from 28th November – 9th December 2022 following a successful pilot of the course in 2021. The LogPSO course aims at providing participants with knowledge, skills to plan, employ, deploy and liquidate logistics support for peace support operations. Twenty-four (24) personnel from mission areas including personnel from the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) benefited from this training.


Eighth edition of the Military Observers Pre-Deployment Training held

The Military Observers Pre-Deployment Training (MilObs PDT) Course was held for the  eighth time from 14th November – 1st December 2022. The course, which has been running since 2018, aims to equip prospective Military Observers with the skill set to enable them discharge their duties and responsibilities effectively and efficiently in UN and Regional Peace Operations missions. The course exposed the twenty (20) military personnel who participated to a working proficiency of the basic military observer duties and responsibilities including patrolling, observation, investigation, verification, monitoring, negotiation and mediation amongst others.

Participants appreciated the practical nature and expertise of the facilitators as one participant shared;

“KAIPTC’s training programme on MILOBs pre- deployment course was excellent and well coordinated in the sense there were group exercises to brain storm us on what we have learned. The facilitators are experts in their lectures , they ensure everyone understand what has been taught and also demonstrated it in class as well as in the field. I appreciate all their efforts and contributions in ensuring that the course was successful.  The lessons learnt will guide me on my daily work especially on SGBV on women and children in ensuring that proper actions are taking for anyone found wanting.” ~Anonymous, MilObs PDT22



KAIPTC trains Liberian Security Personnel in Collaborative Policing

KAIPTC Police Mobile Training Team also conducted the Collaborative Policing (CPol) Course from 7th – 18th November 2022 in Liberia. The course which sought to provide the fundamental knowledge and skills needed for efficient and effective collaboration among law enforcement agencies in Liberia, brought together seventy-seven (77) personnel from the Liberia National Police, Drug Enforcement Agency, Immigration Service, Fire and Rescue Service, Maritime Authority and Executive Protection Service.

Participants of this course acknowledged that improving collaboration among their agencies projects a much better coordinated effort as they continue the fight in maintaining peace and security in Liberia.

One participant shared;

“The knowledge and skills that I have acquired from this training cannot be compared to any, and I intend to apply it by starting with my very self. Change requires a change of mindset, as of now, I see the security sectors from a holistic standpoint, different angles as it relates to collaborating policing with state actors and non-state actors, respect for the rule of law, human rights, gender equality, community policing, just to name few.” ~ Anonymous CPol22-3



KAIPTC trains over 200 Law Enforcement Personnel in Nigeria on Electoral Violence and Security ahead of the 2023 elections

Ahead of the 2023 Elections in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Electoral Violence and Security (EVS) Course was held for over 200 security personnel from the 14th – 25th November 2022.

Hosted by the Nigerian Police Force, the course provided capacity to these law enforcement agencies in the prevention, management and dealing with potential or perceived electoral violence situations that may arise in the election.  Participants expressed how beneficial the training was in discharging their duties during the election period. A participant mentioned;

“Going into the 2023 General Elections in Nigeria, the training has acquainted me with the requisite knowledge to effectively manage issues bordering on security for a free, fair, credible and all inclusive Elections. This has given me ample opportunity to pass the knowledge to my subordinates for better policing of the electoral process.” ~Anonymous, EVSC22, Nigeria
