First Joint Logistics Support Group Course is held in Prague
NATO and PfP logisticians attended the first JLSG course which was organised by the Multinational Logistics Coordination Centre based in Prague from 19 to 23 November 2012.
The major goal of the Course was to provide 92 participants from 13 nations and 16 NATO organisations with knowledge on how to improve command and coordination capabilities of logistic components during operations. This goal is closely connected with ongoing build-up of the JLSG of four Visegrad countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) and training in favour of upcoming Exercise CAPABLE LOGISTICIAN 2013 which will be held in the Slovak Republic.
“The build-up of the JLSG command structure is one of the most important Smart Defence projects and our MLCC trains and will keep training all the personnel of the command,” Colonel Miroslav Pelikan, Director of the Multinational Logistics Coordination Centre, said, and emphasized the need of JLSG to effectively support all units in the theatre.
Lectures, given by experienced speakers from NATO command structure, European Union and the NATO School, were followed by working syndicates in which the course participants had a possibility to test their knowledge.
The course was also attended by Brigadier General Salvatore Albore’, (ITA), Director of the JLSG Force Command, Heidelberg, Germany, who, in his closing remarks, expressed many thanks to MLCC in Prague for its great initiative to organise JLSC course, and its active approach to logistic issues within Visegrad's initiative countries.
