FIRST OF ITS KIND PROFESSIONAL COURSE IN ASIA


COURSE INTRODUCTION

India is the most disaster prone nation in the world. More than 50% populations in the country lives in areas which are prone to Earthquake, Floods, Cyclone, Avalanches, Drought and Tsunami.

Mountains exist in almost every country in the world and almost every war has included some type of mountain operations. This pattern will not change; therefore, You as soldiers will fight in mountainous terrain in future conflicts. Although mountain operations have not changed, several advancements in equipment and transportation have increased the soldiers’ capabilities. The helicopter now allows access to terrain that was once unreachable or could be reached only by slow methodical climbing. Inclement weather, however, may place various restrictions on the capabilities of air assets available to a commander. The unit must then possess the necessary mountaineering skills to overcome adverse terrain to reach an objective.
