Secretary of the National Security Council Irine Imerlishvili visited Vaziani military base as well. They attended the special briefing about the exercises and visited the classes.
The objectives of the training include mission planning and procedures, helicopter operation and small unit tactics. More than 50 soldiers
participated in the exercises. The exercises are held within the first stage of the special warfare training and aims to master in small unit tactics.
The Minister of Defence highlighted importance of training of Georgian military: Georgian SOF are further developing. We are conducting large-scale and complex exercises. Our SOF must be capable to conduct a full spectrum of operations both inside and outside the country. We have shown our President a demonstrative training. The military training deserved higher appreciations.
Approximately 800 military servicemen from various units expressed willingness to undergo the course. One of the main criteria for the training was more than 2 years service in Georgian Armed Forces. The volunteers passed tests in general skills and physical preparation. Commanders’ recommendations were also taken into consideration. Only 240 soldiers met the requirements. But only 73 soldiers were selected and currently, they are undergoing the training. 90 percent of them have received combat experience in the ISAF mission in Afghanistan.
The preparation included special training in stressful and heavy weather conditions. After the successful completion of the course, military servicemen will move to the next stage of SOF training. Afterwards, they will be appointed to the relevant positions of Special Operations Forces. The same course is also planned to be held in the future as well.
