Given the interest in every country to protect the environment, Colombian Armed Forces assumed their responsibility before the National Environmental Service and set out a strategic environmental plan. To perform the interinstitutional cooperation agreement entered into by Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje SENA, Cundinamarca regional office, designed a program focused on the formation of personnel from High Mountain Battalions, as professional technicians in handling and conservation of snowcapped mountain forests.
The training involves eight directional modules focused on instruction along three general project lines. The personnel who participates in this training course will be able to perform as Forest supervisor in Silvicultura, coordinator of environmental plans, environmental technician and as forest ranger.
The formation received shall involve 1350 hours and each battalion will have 60 participants in the course, to be directly executed in the facilities of the High Mountain Battalion. During 2008, the idea is to provide training to 461 members of the Army, including noncommissioned officers, officers and soldiers.
This program seeks to strengthen democratic security and environmental conservation, actions that are promoted by the Presidency, looking to strengthen social cohesiveness. Moreover, the plan guarantees defense of the eco-systems, protection of the environment and of the civil population; as well as the free exercise of democracy, peace and tranquility.
