Haiti - Army : 500 Haitian soldiers in training from January 2019
500 young aspiring soldiers, who will be selected from nearly 4,000 candidates, will form the first Army Soldier Promotion and will begin training in January 2019, according to Enol Joseph Defense Minister. To date, the candidates of this first Promotion have already undergone the medical examinations and await the results to know if they will be allowed to pass the physical tests.

At the Gressier military base, the rehabilitation work of the dormitories (most of them air-conditioned) where they will be staying is advancing, however according to our sources it is not certain that these dwellings will be ready in January because of budgetary constraints, which could delay the start of training...

The training, scheduled to begin on 18 January, will last almost 5 months and will be carried out by Mexican soldiers, former Haitian soldiers and some civilian experts. The Mexican authorities will send doctors, agronomists and engineers to participate in this training. In addition, Haitian army officials will receive military training in Mexico to strengthen the Corps of Engineers informed the Minister of Defense, adding that the Armed Forces of Haiti (FAd'H) also benefit from cooperation with Chile, Brazil, Ecuador and Taiwan.

Recall that during the first call for candidacies (17 to 21 July 2017 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21481-haiti-flash-the-army-recruits-call-for-candidates.html ) more than 2,200 postulants of which 200 young women have registered https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21629-haiti-army-more-than-2-000-candidates-soldier-enrolled.html . Last November, during the resumption of recruitment (November 12 to 16 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-25995-haiti-flash-recruitment-of-a-class-of-soldiers.html ) nearly 1,700 new aspiring soldiers have registered.
