Major General Claudio Angelelli, Deputy Commander of NATO Training Mission in Iraq, stressed that these significant results add to the achievement of the 133 instructors trained by the Carabinieri. This achievement seems numerically less important but proves the important purpose of the self sustainability planned for the end of 2011. These trainers, classified in T3 (Train the Trainers “Basic instructors”) and T5 (Train the Trainers, Trained by the Iraqi “the best of the T3 instructors) represent the multiplier effect of the training activity. All these training initiatives were created in a framework of flexibility and adherence, at the request of the Iraqi Federal Police, as stressed by Gendarmerie Division Head of NTM‑I, Colonel of the Carabinieri Mauro Isidori, and Chief Gendarmerie Training Unit, Lieutenant Colonel Robert Jervolino. This important contribution of training offered by the NTM‑I is only a part of the wider NATO training program for the Iraqi Security Forces. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ * T3: “Train the Trainers”, basic instructors ** T5: “Train the Trainers, Trained by the Iraqi “the best of instructors” which through further selection processes and training is recognized ability to train basic instructors, the “T3”.
