A select number of Ammunition Specialists from the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) attended a one week long Ammunition Management refresher course at the Golden West Advanced Technology Training Centre (ATTC) in Kampong Chnnang, Cambodia.
As part of the USDoS PM/WRA funded project; the students received concise lessons on Ammunition Management best practices in line with the International Ammunition Technical Guidelines (IATG). With subjects ranging from safe storage principles, to ammunition accounting, transportation and inspection of ammunition; the students are able to return back to their places of work and begin putting in place the activities that are required to allow them to store their ammunition with greater security and safety. In turn these activities will decrease the risk of an accidental explosion that would have serious humanitarian effects.
The RCAF are essential partners in providing unserviceable and aged ammunition to the Explosive Harvesting Program (EHP) which provides demolition charges through its innovative explosives supply solution that helps saves lives and cuts costs normally associated with humanitarian demining.
