CPL de Schot delivers a lesson reviewing cam and concealment in the jungle environment.

Officers of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces are currently benefiting from Basic Recruit and Senior Non Commissioned Officer courses based on international best practice and standards.

This is being provided by six New Zealand Army soldiers.

This is a two to four month engagement that will see the NZ Army instructors build on a long-standing partnership with the RFMF.

Corporal Kim De Schot says there are challenges for both the students and the instructors.

De Schot says the Fijian students are eager to learn and motivated to succeed.

For the Senior Non Commissioned Officer course, the training will culminate in a three week exercise in the Fijian jungle.
