Montreal, Quebec-- (June 14, 2013) - The Canadian Tactical Training Academy

(CTTA) (Pink Sheets: CTTG)

A delegation from the Ivory Coast spent three days at the head office of the Canadian Tactical Training Academy in Montreal, Canada to discuss two potential projects, now in the planning stages.

The delegation included Joseph Tchriffo, Director of Security and Safety with the Bolloré Group. The discussion with Mr. Tchriffo focused on training for security and security management at the Port of Abidjan, the second largest port in Africa.

After the meetings, Mr. Tchriffo said “I was very impressed to meet the experts who inspired the founding of and helped build the professional security academy (ASP) in the Ivory Coast”.

Heading the delegation was Mr. Clotcho Secongo, President of the ASP (Professional Security Academy of the Ivory Coast) which trains both public and private sector security officers, specializes in Maritime and Port Security. Mr. Secongo has worked with our team since 2000 and accompanied and introduced Mr. Tchriffo to CTTA. Mr. Secongo indicated that he was “happy to be back at my second ‘home’ at the CTTA head office in Canada to promote and explain upcoming new projects”.

Angelo Marino, Vice President of Operations of CTTA, was very pleased with the discussions and said, “It has been 13 years since we first started our work in the Ivory Coast. I am very proud to build on the success we achieved in creating the training academy in Abidjan and I am pleased with the ongoing confidence in our company by our colleagues in the Ivory Coast”.

Mr. Marino last visited the Ivory Coast in September of 2012 at the invitation of the Canadian Embassy and participated in the graduation ceremonies of 50 graduates of the ASP as part of a pilot project related to the training of private security officers and municipal police officers.
