Watch this new 5-minute feature by Forces News to find out about the inspiring work our experienced instructors have been doing at the Counter IED wing of the Humanitarian Peace Support School in Nairobi, Kenya.
The school opened in 2016, and since then over 1600 students from 15 nations have received training in safe bomb disposal from instructors such as Tony Dedman, who has half a century of experience behind him, and Glyn Hannah, who has a a 25-year career spent within Search, IEDD and Conventional Munition Disposal.
Tony talks about how important it is to enforce strict training and pass standards - a decision that safeguards lives in this dangerous field.
Over the few years that the training school has existed, techniques have improved and there have been markedly fewer casualties thanks to life-saving skills and procedures.
Forty percent of lessons are now taught by the Kenyans themselves, and by 2022 instruction will have passed entirely to the Kenyans, but ISSEE will continue to stand by them during their fight against IEDs and terrorism.
Glyn points out that their work is more than just a job - "We start off as instructors, and we leave as friends."
