Representatives of the border police of six countries from the region, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, Croatia and Serbia,
attended this international course. They will participate in the implementation of the following courses, as trainers.
We are the first generation of trainers - says m.a. Slaviša Igić, a former student of 15th class of Police High School, commander of border police station in Dimitrovgrad. - During the nine days’ training, our “teachers” - trainers, Ms Nada Banjac and Ms Gordana Milić, have enabled us to introduce new methods of conducting classes. This course, as well as the previous courses in this series, gives students the opportunity to try to prepare and conduct classes and gain confidence in performance in front of the audience. It is not only interesting, but is also useful for the job I do.
