The training session of the first batch of female civilian volunteers at the Reserve Force kicked off at the Bahrain Defence Force today.
Major-General Muneer Ahmed Al-Subaie, Royal Reserve Force Unit Commander, attended the opening of the course, held at the Isa Royal Military College, with the participation of female civilian volunteers from the relatives of the military and civilian staff and retirees of the BDF and the National Guard.
The training session aims to provide military training for the participants in order to enable them to carry out their patriotic role in serving and defending the nation, alongside their brethren from the BDF, based on the keenness of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, to advance the status of Bahraini women.
The BDF has prepared well for the training session by providing all requirements, equipping the classrooms, selecting the best trainers and offering the best study subjects that cover military sciences, theoretical materials and practical training programmes, which will ensure the graduation of well-trained and qualified female civilian reservists.
