Handling of weapons, training

Generally, all bearers of weapons (including crew/ helicopter crew etc.) need a training course (half a day theory, half a day day practice).

The training courses are organised by AWI and are valid for 36 months. Thereafter, the course must be repeated.

It is required that at least two persons per working group in the field have passed such a course, thus are able to share polar bear watch.
