The first “Course for War Corespondents” for the civil journalists participating to activities in different hot beds or theaters of military operations will start Tuesday, May 18, at 09.00 hours at the 96th Engineering Battalion headquarters (So. Oltentei 219) in the presence of Sorin Encutescu, State Secretary and chief of Department for Parliament Liaison, Legislative Harmonization and Public Relations.

The Course is organized by the Public Relations Directorate from the Ministry of National Defence with the support of the General Staff. 18 journalists will attend this Course in the first series. The first module will be developed in Bucharest, between May 18 and 19, 04 and the second one will be between June 10 and 11, 04 in Predeal at a Mountain troops unit.

Practically and theoretically the themes of the Course will be focused on knowing the factors of risk in the areas the military operations are developing, different types of armament, ammunition and anti-personnel mines, NBC protection and the emergency aid. In the same time there will be presented the rules of working with media in a campaign and a session of firing with 5.45 mm automatic rifle will also be organized.

The necessity to organize this Course derives from the multiple missions the Romanian Armed Forces are implied in outside the borders and from the numberless requests of the journalists for participating to the theaters of operations and the new status of our country as NATO member.
