Malta was made proud once more by six officer cadets who completed an intensive training programme with the Irish Defence Forces Cadet School.
The GWU – Disciplined Forces, Security & Law Enforcement Officers Section congratulated the six men for their hard work, determination and well-earned eventual success.
‘You have made an honour for yourselves, for the FAM, but above all, for Malta’ said the GWU in a Facebook post. Located within the Military College, the Cadet School is responsible for the training and education of officer cadets for the Defence Forces
The young men who completed the intensive training were Matthew Grech, Clishe Ghirxi, Owen Agius, Luca Formosa, John Galea and Nikolai Cutajar.
Alongside their Irish colleagues, the AFM cadets kicked off their training on the 5th of October of 2020. Over the course of 18 months, they engage in numerous training which encapsulated tactical, physical and academic challenges.
All 52 cadets of the 97th Cadet Class who underwent the training have become Commissioned Officers and will now be moving into the next phase of their journey. Well done all!
