Invitation to the Norwegian military skills competition 2017

The Norwegian Reserve Officers’ Association organizes every year a challenging field competition, aimed at testing field skills and motivate for further training. The competition is a long patrol mission in daylight and darkness. The competition has tasks such as knowledge of the Defence organization and missions, defense knowledge (including NATO), First Aid/Combat Casualty Care, communications, shooting, obstacle courses, crisis management, leadership and general soldier skills.


 

The teams must be self sufficient during the competition. The competition starts Friday evening, when orders are given to the team leaders, and ends Saturday evening. The competitors consist of teams from the Norwegian Armed Forces, Norwegian reserves and foreign teams.

Saturday evening, after the competition, there will be a social event and barbecue evening. Award ceremony will be on Sunday morning.

This year's competition will be held the weekend of 15th -17th of September. The location will be at just north of Trondheim, at Værnes Garrison.

Værnes Garrison is located just next to Trondheim Airport Værnes. Quarters will also be here. Transportation to / from Trondheim Airport Værnes can be arranged.

The Norwegian Reserve Officers’ Association would like to challenge YOUR nation to send one or more teams to this fascinating competition. The competition focuses on known training elements of basic military skills. Each team must consist of four people and the team leader must be an officer or sergeant.
