ICCSS International Training Team of experts from Egypt, Jordan, Netherlands and Poland, conducted in Amman (Jordan) a Pilot Train the Trainers Course on Chemical Safety and Security. The training is an element of project on upgrading Amman CBRN Training Centre into regional centre for chemical safety and security (ChemReg), funded by France within G7 Global Partnership https://www.gpwmd.com/. The aim is to develop Jordan as regional hub for chemical safety and security. ChemReg will prepare trainers in chemical and environmental safety and security for countries in the Middle East and offer continued trainings, exercises, best practices exchanges, and capacity building, within the ICCSS led international Middle East Chemical Safety and Security Program.
15 Jordan trainees actively participated and successfully completed Part 1 of the Pilot Train the Trainers Course. They will continue training during second part of training in Poland, after which they become first degree trainers in chemical safety and security. The trainers will be able to conduct relevant training courses at the ChemReg at Amman CBRN Centre and in other international places, led by ICCSS. ChemReg will offer trainers courses within 3 streams: local Arabic stream for national and regional stakeholders; international English stream for international stakeholders, and female stream, to develop female trainers in prevention, preparedness for and response to chemical and environmental disasters. ChemReg will host, in early autumn 2021, a first pilot national train the trainers course on chemical and environmental safety and security for all relevant Jordanian government agencies and relevant industries, with an emphasis on transportation and storage of chemicals and dangerous goods.
