Specialised Training Materials (STM) for United Nations Military Units (UNMU)
The UN Departments of Peacekeeping Operations and Field Support have developed a suite of training packages to prepare peacekeepers for their deployment in missions. Amongst these packages are the Specialised Training Materials for specific United Nations Military Units (UNMU).Initially, the Office of Military Affairs (OMA) developed a series of Military Unit Manuals (UNMUM) designed to provide unit and sub-unit commanders as well as peacekeeping staff and other personnel with a Reference Guide on how to prepare specific military units to undertake their tasks in United Nations peacekeeping operations. The manuals cover the areas of Aviation, Engineers, Force Headquarters Support, Logistics, Maritime Operations, Military Police, Riverine, Signals, Special Forces and Transport. The Integrated Training Service (ITS) followed up these manuals with the production of Specialised Training Materials (STMs) in collaboration with subject matter experts from Member States.The aim of these training materials is to provide troop-contributing countries with a comprehensive training package that combines the Conceptual, Legal, and Operational Frameworks for specific type of units. The STMs also mainstream relevant aspects of the Protection of Civilians into frameworks / material. The STM includes small exercises, as well as a more comprehensive scenario-based exercise, which can be run at the end of a course to strengthen participants’ understanding on how to better operate in a UN Peacekeeping environment. The training packages are designed for application in both pre-deployment and in-mission training.
