Anadolu Agency's 14th war journalism program begins


Anadolu Agency’s 14th war journalism training program began on Monday in the capital Ankara under the supervision of the agency’s news academy.

Anadolu Agency’s News Academy will train correspondents in collaboration with the Turkish Police Academy, the disaster management agency, the Turkish Armed Forces, and the Undersecretariat of Public Order and Security.

The certificate program is taking place at the Turkish Police Academy in Anittepe.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Director of the Anadolu Agency's News Academy Hayri Cetinkus said the program aims at preparing correspondents to face dangers that may arise while reporting under emergency situations such as war, natural disaster and mass riots.

Anadolu Agency does not send any correspondent to a war zone without having this training, Cetinkus added.

The agency’s correspondents from different regions and three journalists from Syria are attending the training.

The program includes trainings such as journalism under pressure, personal security, the laws of war, first aid, advanced driving techniques, water survival techniques, chemical and biological attacks and media management in hostile environments.

The program will continue until May 3. The successful participants will be awarded internationally-recognized certificates.
