In the last 15 years, Militaries around the world have been increasingly deployed in actual large scale operations. Both equipment and personnel have been extensively pressed to maintain such a pace for this lengthy periods. For equipment, budgets are planned and projects are in place to try and handle the shortcomings..
For staff/personnel, the solution is not so easy
- Maintenance, Logistics and Administration activities are outsourced to industry or International agencies (i.e. UN
- and NATO Agencies.)
- For security/guard/VIP-escort, it is either contracted out to civilian companies or specialized federal police units have been deployed into operations and taking up the specialized task that used to be done by military units.
- Specialized training has also been outsourced more and more. This is due to the cream of the training staffs, actually being placed into operational units, that are deployed and/or burnout from continuous deployment of this staff. This leaves no (or very little) trained experts to train the next rotation. In addition, the vacuum of training staff, is also impacting the inclusion of latest techniques, equipment and lessons learned, from being integrated into the new training. This is more severely felt in the
- advanced tactical training capabilities, of the..
Armed forces, where there is no experienced staff left.
- Everything these days comes down to budgets and essential activities. Developing an perienced tactical instructor takes about 15 years of service and extensive training. At rough timate per instructor: 15 years x (55k euro yearly salary plus 55k euro training & equipment) = 1.6M euro investment + a 110k euro maintenance cost to
- maintain those training capabilities.
- Experience in using the right tool for the right job. Trainers tend to use the equipment that is available to them. They also have few occasions to experiment using different techniques with different gear. Their experience and added advantages are a must in ensuring of having the best tools for the right job.
- Limited to national operational standards and techniques.Lessons learned and new techniques happen in operations. Those that remain in a training role have limited contact to learn from operational and international experience.
II. The solution:
Experienced international training teams that have no maintenance costs or investment in training. These teams bring there international experience in latest techniques, equipment and environments. They can evaluate troops techniques and operational procedures and identify the flaws and weaknesses.They can provide and tailor the training to correct those weaknesses.
The specific training can be budgeted on a fixed yearly amount. No maintenance of training staff that are exposed to limited growth and experience. The vast international experience:
- ensure better equipment used for the right job.
- better techniques adapted for the environment
- independent POV on correction and improvements of routine habits/flaws that exist in unit operational procedures
- most important: ensuring that the lessons learned in one nation/environment are not learned, the hard way, by the other nations/environments. (save lives)
