DCI-COFRAS, the Army, Gendarmerie and Armed Forces Medical Corps branch of DCI, are pleased to welcome 21 new foreign officer trainees at the St-Cyr Coëtquidan military academy.
After the graduation of the first batch of 10 Saudi Arabian cadets in 2012, DCI will train 21 cadets from Kuwait. These trainees will attend a 5-year curriculum including 3 years at the St-Cyr military academy ending with the issue of a “Diplomacy and Strategy” Bachelor of Arts. The Kuwaiti trainees will first spend 22 months at the Brittany international language studies centre (CIEL) in order to master the French language.
“The educational training plays an essential part in structuring elite military personnel. It constitutes a central pole of DCI's activity,” declared General Patrick Tanguy, Executive Vice-President of DCI-COFRAS.”
“We are proud that the State of Kuwait entrusts us with the task of training the future elite of the Kuwaiti Armed Forces and will do our utmost to ensure total success,” he added.
