SALW Basics – Recognizing SALW and Ammunition_Trainee

Release Date



  • English


Along with the other modules that comprise the series SALW Basics, this module is intended to provide a basic fundamental understanding of the issue of SALW for trainees who have had little or no previous exposure to the subject. 
Trainees who need a more detailed knowledge of SALW types and their components (e.g. participants in preparation for SALW collection and destruction programs) should read the TRESA Module Recognizing SALW and Ammunition (RSA05), which covers this topic in greater depth. We recommend that you also study the SALW Basics-Definitions (SB-D05) module to familiarize yourself with the working definition for SALW used in all other TRESA modules, and to ensure that all trainees are using the same terminology.
