Coalition Forces Help Prepare Mechanics For Iraqi Community
The method of training that mechanics receive in Iraq just got a huge improvement, as the Coalition has began a new program for Iraqi mechanics. The first graduating class of Iraqi Army mechanics recently graduated from the new course at Camp Taji.
The 16 mechanics that were part of the graduation class was the result of over a month of intensive and rigorous training and instruction. The first class was taught basically how to teach other Iraqi Soldiers and mechanics, they were mechanics that were carefully chosen because they were already close to master mechanics.
By choosing mechanics that were very skilled, the members of the coalition seek to train members of the Iraqi Army mechanics that can help teach other mechanics to become mechanics, with the latest technology.
It is necessary to train Iraqi soldiers using modern techniques, the mechanics that were chosen are very skilled, but do not have experience with computers, and the latest mechanical equipment trucks and vehicles.
By training skilled mechanics in new techniques and using the latest technology, they are able to use their skills and expand on them, giving them the ability to act as instructors. They will work under the close supervision of coalition soldiers for the first few training classes, and this will enable the Iraqi mechanical situation to continue to improve, with skilled graduates being turned out every 4 to 5 months.
