Samsun Yurt Savunma (SYS) continues to provide training services abroad with its CANiK ACADEMYbrand, which was founded in order to ensure the safe, conscious and effective use of firearms andaccessories. The last stop of CANiK ACADEMY was Singapore, where CANiK brand pistols are alsoused by official institutions. In this context, CANiK ACADEMY provided tactical shooting andmaintenance training to Singapore Ministry of Interior personnel between 18-21 April. 60participants who successfully completed the intensive training program were awarded a certificate.
C. Utku Aral, General Manager of SYS made the following assessments on the subject: “With CANiKACADEMY, Türkiye’s first and leading training academy in its field, we are adding a new dimension toour country’s strong production and export activities in the defence industry. CANiK ACADEMY, whichwe have founded for the conscious and safe use of the products we sell abroad, has completedanother successful training programme by going to Singapore after Somalia, Brazil and thePhilippines with its training staff. Singapore is a country with a very high per capita income and anannual defence expenditure of over 12 billion dollars. It is known that Singapore, despite its lowpopulation, spends much more on defence than the total defence expenditures of large and crowdedcountries such as its neighbours Indonesia and Malaysia. However, they are very selective aboutimports. It’s really hard to get into the inventory of this country. As CANiK, we managed to enter theinventory of Singapore’s elite institutions by performing one of the rare defence exports from ourcountry to this country. There are very few institutions in the world that provide education in thisfield and in this context. For this, first of all, you need to be a well-known brand in the defenceindustry in global circles. While we represent the strength of our country in the defence industry withour CANiK ACADEMY brand, we aim to bring a worldwide standard to the training given in the field ofdefence.”
CANiK ACADEMY offers media consultancy services as well as training on tactical shooting, sportshooting, care and medical intervention. Having completed the trainings given to various governmentinstitutions in Turkiye, CANiK ACADEMY also provides training to users in many countries such as thePhilippines, Brazil, Somalia and Singapore. The trainers working within CANiK ACADEMY consist ofretired soldiers and law enforcement personnel with more than 15 years of field experience, andnational athletes who have degrees in international competitions in the branches of sportiveshooting.
