05 Oct EUTM Mali provides teaching skills to the instructors of the Malian Armed Forces NCO Military Academy (ESO)
The Ecole de Sous-Officiers (ESO) Instructor course in Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT) concluded on the 29th September 2017 at Koulikoro Training Center (KTC). The course took place over a four week period and covered the full spectrum of MOUT tactics, techniques and procedures. The primary objective of the instructor course was to develop the necessary skills required to operate as a MOUT Instructor within the MaAF. In order to achieve this EUTM instructors focused on imparting the methodologies and pedagogical practices required to succeed in today’s urban classroom. Students were tested on both the delivery of their lessons and also in a final General Test which assessed overall knowledge of both MOUT and the necessary skillset of today’s military instructor. The students performed to a high standard throughout the program with eleven personnel achieving the instructor level qualification. This once again highlighted the positive and professional learning environment that exists between MaAF and EUTM Mali.
