Erwtec Training

ERWTEC has many years experience instructing and operating in the Swedish Army and in Non Governmental Organizations (NGO).

ERWTEC constant ambition for quality in every aspect of its work means that we will tailor the training package according to International Mine Action Standards (IMAS) and CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) competency standards in any country to suit the student group, whether they have military background or are civilians.

ERWTEC offers training packages in:

  • Battle Area Clearance (BAC) the systematic and controlled clearance of hazardous areas,
  • Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) training in IMAS EOD level 1-3:
    • EOD level 1 operators shall be competent to locate, identify and destroy under appropriate supervision, single items in-situ on which they have been specifically trained,
    • EOD level 2 operators shall be competent to locate, identify, move, transport and destroy multiple items on which they have been specifically trained,
    • EOD level 3 operators shall be competent to conduct render-safe procedures and final disposal of any type of explosive ordnance with the exception of EOD level 4 specialisations,
  • Stockpile Destruction the physical destructive procedure towards a continual reduction of the stockpile of EO,
  • Demining, humanitarian demining activities which lead to the removal of mines and ERW hazards, including technical survey, mapping, clearance, marking, post-clearance documentation, community mine action liaison and the handover of cleared land,
  • Quality Assurance (QA) to confirm that management practices and operational procedures for demining are appropriate, are being applied, and will achieve the stated requirement in a safe, effective and efficient manner. Internal QA will be conducted by demining organisations themselves, but external inspections by an external monitoring body should also be conducted,
  • Mine Risk Education (MRE) activities which seek to reduce the risk of injury from mines/ERW by raising awareness of men, women, and children in accordance with their different vulnerabilities, roles and needs, and promoting behavioural change including public information dissemination, education and training.
