As part of NATO's Lessons Learned Engagement Plan for 2019, the JALLC provided a three-day Lessons Learned (LL) training course, at the QAF Officers Training institute, located on the Ahmed Bin Mohammed Military College in Doha, Qatar.
The visit was led by General Mohammed B. Al-Badr, head of the Army Training Directorate of the QAF general staff.  Attendees included officers from various branches of the QAF

Throughout the training, the participants got acquainted with the NATO Lessons Learned Capability and Process, having also a chance to familiarize with basic analysis techniques applied to Lessons Learned scenarios.

The event took place in the framework of the Istanbul Cooperation Initiative (ICI), initiated in 2004 during the NATO summit.  During the summit NATO leaders decided to launch the ICI with selected countries in the Middle East.  The ICI stands alongside NATO's Partnership for Peace and the Mediterranean Dialogue programs.
