IHP Support Staff Training 2009

The 2009 IHP Support Staff Training was hosted by CMC Finland in Kuopio from 16-20 November 2009. The training aimed at providing IHP technical support staff and partners a basic awareness of the international emergency environment, the UNDAC system and the IHP support modules concept.

Participants were introduced to basic assessment and coordination methodology as well as received training in the basic technical tools which the support staff are utilising during UNDAC support missions. The training contained both classroom sessions as well as practical modules. This year's participants came from the following IHP member organisation: DEMA, DCPEP, CMC, ERB, MSB, and for the first time THW - which has observer status in the IHP - also joined the training.
