Through the assistance of our foreign counterparts, the Maritime Group largely benefitted the training assistance that were provided annually by foreign agencies such as US-Dept. of Justice International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program ( U.S. DOJ- ICITAP), Joint Inter-Agency Task Force-West (JIATF West), Raytheon Company and other foreign agencies. Thus, no amount of logistical superiority would ensure success without an equally professional, adept and skill work force. The Maritime Group has participated in numerous foreign training courses and seminars. A total of 150 MG personnel availed the said trainings and seminars in CY 2014, while a total of 240 in CY 2015.
