During this event the Director of the  Scuola di Perfezionamento underlined the different aspects characterizing this peculiar training activity as well as the importance to set up a  network of professional and human relations affecting their whole professional life and representing the real “added value” of this Course.

This outstanding event represented a kind of handover between the previous and the current groups of trainers. Then, the leader of the XXXVIII Advanced Training Course, Carabinieri Corps Colonel t.SFP Nicolò Giordano, welcomed the new trainees, together with  the Colonel of the Slovak Republic t.SFP Marcel Pavuk, who attended the above-mentioned Course and represented the other foreign auditors who, last June,  concluded their training activity along  with  the Italian colleagues.  

At the end of this short but heartfelt welcome ceremony, the new trainees introduced themselves and posed for the group photo.  

The Advanced Training Course, having an Academic Year duration, is aimed at honing the scientific-professional expertise of Management Grade Police Officers/Officials, as well as at improving their decision-making skills by providing them with methods and techniques in the fields of law enforcement organization, development and coordination. Also this year, the Course training activity will be focused on four traditional learning areas: “law enforcement coordination and fight against organized crime and terrorism”; “international cooperation”; “social, economic and communication sciences”; “public management”.
