Ahmed bin Mohammed Military College in Doha, Qatar, graduated 158 officer cadets in January 2021 in a ceremony attended by high-ranking officers from Jordan, Kuwait, Oman and Pakistan, as well as Qatar.
“Today a new generation of officers follows in the footsteps of their predecessors to form an impregnable wall for this country, a generation that can meet the political developments and regional challenges, a generation that realizes the ambitions of this country and its leaders,” said Brig. Gen. Abdulhadi Muhammad Treheeb Al-Hajiri, commander of the military college.
The graduation ceremony was held under the patronage of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Defense Affairs Dr. Khalid bin Mohamed Al Attiyah and attended by His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.
Aside from Qatari officer cadets, the 16th graduating class at Ahmed bin Mohamed Military College included young officers from Jordan, Kuwait, Mauritania, Somalia, and Rwanda. Sheikh Tamim honored eight Qatari and three Jordanian officers for excellence in fields that included computing, international relations and accounting.
The head of the Kuwaiti National Guard delegation, Maj. Gen. Faleh Shujaa Faleh, commended Ahmed bin Mohammed Military College for improving the skills of Kuwaiti military personnel. He stressed the importance of exchanging experiences with the security forces of partner countries to keep abreast of tactical, technical and logistical developments.
To fulfill the vision of then-Chief Commander of the Qatari Armed Forces Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Qatar founded the military college in 1996 to prepare cadets academically and professionally for military and police missions.
