Second International Course of Staff for the United Nations

In order to serve in an environment of interoperability through multi-mission, the School of International Missions and Integral Action (Esmai), and the Brazilian Joint Center for Peace Operations (CCOPAB) held the Second International Course of Staff for the United Nations. This course is looking for the commitment of the security of our nation.
It came with the aim of training staff officers of the National Army of Colombia to work as future members of Staff in peacekeeping missions under the framework of the United Nations. It will facilitate, in the future, the inclusion of our country in international arenas, as a leading actor, committed to peace, stability and prosperity, not only of Colombia but of the world's nations according to the peace commitment established by the UN.


To our Military Institution, this preparation given by a delegation of the Brazilian Army and France to our Colombian forces, with a total of 26 participants, is a clear opportunity to professionalize the members of the Armed Forces in peacekeeping missions. It consolidates the doctrine for peacekeeping operations, for the sake of continuous improvement of our academic exercise, particularly during peace operations, which have had seven courses and trained 189 students.
