The Public Affairs Officers Course 2015 has finally come to an end. During the two weeks’ course the students received theoretical training on basic maters concerning public affairs, but also used the knowledge provided, in practice during the practical training part. They participated in the exercise «NORTHERN MESSENGER», where they organised and run a Public Affairs Office, in a simulated operation environment, under a realistic scenario.
The course consisted of 34 students from different countries (Armenia, Bosnia&Herzegovina, Germany, Greece, Italy, Malta, Nigeria, Spain, FYROM, United Arab Emirates and USA), military and law enforcement personnel, civilians, professionals and students in the field of communication.
Instructors, coming from several different countries (USA, Canada, Greece and Italy), are all very knowledgeable in their field of expertise. At the same time the practical training, was supported by a team of journalists and technicians.
We should note the great success of the course this year, as it described in the student evaluation forms.
