In April 2021, JLO subject matter experts delivered a virtual United Nations Logistics Officers’ (UNLOG) Course in partnership with the Indonesian Armed Forces Peacekeeping Center (PMPP) in Sentul, Indonesia.
The course featured a blended distanced learning methodology with one Indonesian-based SME delivering in-person instruction and three SMEs providing instruction and facilitation via Zoom. Co-located in Sentul and in compliance with all Covid-19 health and safety precautions, twenty-nine participants learned the logistics staff skills necessary to operate within a UN Mission.
In line with the strategic direction from JLO's client, the Institute for Security Governance (ISG), the course was redesigned to meet the training needs of deploying logistics officers serving with a UN Force HQ or in integrated mission supports structures, an expansion of previous versions of the GPOI UNLOG which were heavily focused on national logistics planning and preparation of contingents deploying. In addition, the instructors converted existing UNLOG materials from a traditional face-to-face format to a distance learning training methodology that leveraged adult learning best practices.
Our training team worked closely with PMPP in the design and set-up of the IT infrastructure to meet the complex requirements for this combination of in-person and online training abroad.
