Education and Training



Pre-deployment Training
We help civilians, police and military personnel designated for operation deployment, to be fully prepared for the environment in which they will serve, including skills necessary to address natural and man-made hazards/risks. 

Our turn-key solution includes:

  • How to deal with scenarios a Canadian might face in a foreign culture, environment and country
  • Calian has the expertise to provide the full range of individual training that will comprehensively prepare personnel to effectively execute their tasks in the most demanding of operational environments

Preparation and Operational Validation Training
We help Canadian Forces, NATO, UN and African Union military headquarters personnel to prepare for mission-specific operational deployments.

Working in direct support of military training authorities, Calian routinely develops and executes training and exercise programs that effectively bring unit and formation headquarters to high-readiness status. These programs are progressive in nature and provide tangible and objective assessment of each level of collective skill required by headquarters as they move into high-readiness status.

Calian's high-readiness training and exercise programs routinely form the basis for "follow-on" mission-specific activities that fully prepare and validate headquarters for operational deployment.
