Eighth Assistance and Protection Course for Instructors from African State Parties
The course will help participating States Parties enhance the abilities and skills of their national instructors when training first responders in how to provide protection against chemical weapons and other toxic chemicals, as well as in how to manage chemical incidents. The course will also provide an overview of the kinds of assistance the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), South Africa, and other States Parties in Africa can provide in the area of assistance and protection. The course will cover: planning and building a support team for civilian protection and defense; rescue and decontamination operations in contaminated areas; and appropriate responses and countermeasures in the event of incidents involving chemical warfare agents or toxic chemicals.
