The UWI and Caribbean Military Academy (CMA) now have a memorandum of understanding where the University will assist the Academy with programme development.

CMA, the academic institutional arm of the Jamaica Defence Force operates six centres of excellence which provide a broad range of training courses to developing military and para-military organisations across the region and around the world. CMA is seeking to be the training academy of choice for small states with defence and other military forces. Its centres of excellence include Caribbean Institute of Professional Military Education, Caribbean Military Aviation School, Caribbean Military Maritime Training Centre, Caribbean Infantry Training Centre, Caribbean Military Technical Training Institute and Caribbean Special Tactics Centre.

This MOU will serve to allow CMA's training programmes to secure international accreditation and standards. The University will be offering guidance on international standards and the Academy will provide the opportunity for The UWI to access military clients globally.
