On behalf of the German Development Ministry THW is supporting the Iraq Government in the implementation of the INSARAG First responder Training in Iraq. The first two training sessions with 42 master trainers from both regions of Iraq happened in July and August 2019 in the THW USAR training base Wesel. In the following months the local authorities will start to build up training centers and arrange all admin and procurement work for the next part of the project:  The trainers from THW will do another ToT in March 2020 in Erbil (Northern Iraq) and support the Iraqi trainer colleagues in their first own local training as supervisors in April 2020 in Northern Iraq.
