Last week, Flag of Canada Retirement Ceremony from BALTDEFCOL and the “Depart with Dignity” Retirement Ceremony of Colonel Jean Trudel took place.

As 🇨🇦 AMB Mr Kevin Rex said the event was bittersweet. “No pride and no joy that Canada flag retires from the College”, he said. Nevertheless, we were all there to celebrate with Col Trudel and wish him happy retirement.

In 2017, Colonel Trudel was deployed to the BALTDEFCOL for the Deputy Commandant/ Chief of Staff position. Within four years, he devoted himself completely to the development of the #College. However, not only Colonel Trudel but also his spouse Ms Claire St Maurice supported the mission of BALTDEFCOL, when she took the lead of the BALTSPOUSES.

Read more about their journey at the BALTDEFCOL: https://www.baltdefcol.org/1646

Jean, Claire - you are the family members of the BALTDEFCOL – keep in touch and come to visit! Good luck and happy retirement! 🤝

The Quality Assurance Team of the NATO ACT
conducted their on-site visit on 10th and 11th June to BALTDEFCOL. The aim of the visit was to assess the College Quality Management Standards. The on-visit was an essential step to complete the NATO institutional accreditation process.

The programme contained several discussions with subject-matter experts and engaged with relevant faculty members, staff and students.

To uphold the highest level of quality in education and to remain a relevant partner for NATO, the NATO Accreditation is deemed very important for the BALTDEFCOL in support of Alliance deterrence efforts and to maintain a high degree of attractiveness. This is a unity of effort and achievable only thanks to cohesive and coherent teamwork.
