The collaboration between the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) and British Military Advisory Training Team (BMATT) has produced another batch of trained NAF Regiment personnel.

Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, Director of Public Relations and Information, NAF, said in a statement issued on Tuesday, that the graduands comprise five officers and 200 airmen who graduated recently from the Regiment Training Centre (RTC), Kaduna, having successfully undergone the five-month Basic Regiment Courses for Officers and Airmen respectively.

According to Famuyiwa, “The objective of the basic courses is to impart the participants with basic regiment skills and knowledge to enable them meet the complex demands of emerging security challenges.

“BMATT handled the airfield defence and force protection aspects of the training that lasted for six weeks. Among the graduands are additional 35 members of Defence Headquarters Special Forces trained in rappelling to impart in them the basic insertion/extraction skills for special operations.

“So far, RTC has trained a total of 518 officers and men since its establishment on 20 January 2016. Earlier in the year, the RTC in collaboration with BMATT, had graduated two batches of students totalling 313 including NAF Officers, Airmen and Airwomen as well as personnel from the Nigerian Navy and Defence Headquarters. The new graduands are expected to be deployed to the North East to boost the current strength of personnel involved in the fight against the Boko Haram insurgency.”
