On 26 July 2019 the Naval and Maritime Communication Course training module for 18 Libyan trainees ended with the closing ceremony in the NATO Maritime Interdiction Operational Training Centre (NMIOTC) in Souda Bay, Crete (Greece).
The six-week module consisted of both theoretical and practical lectures, including topics as International Human Rights, Basic First Aid and Gender Policy.
Up to now the threshold of 417 Libyan Coastguard and Navy personnel trained by EUNAVFOR Med has been reached.
