(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Omani security personnel were among 15 participants from eight regional nations in the inaugural Combined Maritime Force (CMF) naval boarding workshop held in Manama, Bahrain, last month.The workshop provided practical and theoretical training by US-led coalition forces. It enabled officers from regional nations who carry out boarding of commercial vessels at sea to put into practice the skills and techniques learned by coalition forces over the years.The training was provided by members of the US Coast Guard (USCG), the UK's Royal Marines and senior members of CMF. A spokesperson for CMF has confirmed that Omani personnel had been among those taking part in the workshop.In a statement, Commander Hans Kuhfahl, event organiser and member of the German Navy, said that the event was a success. He said the skills learned would prove to be invaluable for those who chose to participate. ''There was good output for all concerned with a high standard of training, delivered with the support of the USCG and Royal Marines.''It will prove invaluable over the coming months when the participants put their new-found skills into practice out at sea.''The three-day workshop saw participants undertake a day of theoretical training, which included briefings by the US National Criminal Investigation Service, before beginning practical tests on days two and three.
