Defence Attachés Autumn Tour

The Defence Attachés Autumn Tour will take place from 6th to 9th September. This tour has been a tradition although in 2019 and 2020 it was canceled due to COVID-19.

Within these four days, the Defence Attachés accredited to Estonia will be introduced to various Estonian Defence Forces (EDF) South Estonian units and important partners.

After a long day in Tallinn and briefings by Mr. Kusti Salm, Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Defence, and LTG Martin Herem, Commander of the Estonian Defence Forces, the tour continued in Tartu.

Brigadier General Ilmar Tamm, the Commandant of the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL), and Colonel Vahur Karus, the Commandant of the Estonian Military Academy (EMA) together welcomed the Defence Attachés here in Riia Street premises.

In the first part of the visit, Col Karus focused on the first and the second level of Professional Military Education and Non-Commissioned Officers education. Afterward, the Defence Attachés were briefed by BG Ilmar Tamm about the College’s vision, mission and received an extensive overview of the BALTDEFCOL courses, which focus on Professional Military Education at the third and fourth level and also continuing education.

There are 23 different nations represented in the BALTDEFCOL within the Staff and Students, so that kind of meeting with the Defence Attachés is a very good opportunity to intensify existing cooperation with respective nations even more.

The Autumn Tour will continue with the briefings by the representatives of various EDF units.
