That's the view of the British High Commissioner to The Gambia Phil Sinkinson who has seen for himself how well the training has gone, despite uncomfortably high humidity and daytime temperatures of around forty degrees.
"One of the UK's major objectives throughout West Africa is conflict resolution," explained Mr Sinkinson. "And well-trained, well-disciplined Armed Forces are a prerequisite for preventing conflict in the first place.
"The Gambian soldiers are amongst the very best-trained troops in Darfur - if not the best. I am delighted with the way that the Royal Gibraltar Regiment are providing this training. They are a credit to Gibraltar."
The Gambians' infantry company has made excellent progress, as has the Force Headquarters company being instructed by Sergeants Trevor Norton and Dan Mifsud. However, for the last week, the Gambians' paramilitary police company has been preparing for the country's Independence Day celebrations and they have been unable to start their BMATT training.
On Independence Day itself, all eyes were focused on the huge parade in the capital, Banjul, where President Jammeh has been hosting various heads of state from neighbouring African countries. Independence Day is a national holiday throughout The Gambia - but not for the visiting Gibraltarians who, having no students to teach, are hard at work renovating a home for handicapped children in one of the poorer villages.
Corporal Ronny Wallace had already spent a couple of days working on his own at the school but the national holiday has allowed the rest of the BMATT team to get involved:
"In a single morning we've painted four rooms and we've dug a 60 metre trench in this rock-hard ground so that I can run a water pipe into the school," he said. "Incredibly, a boarding school for kids with learning difficulties had no running water!
"And digging this trench with just hand tools in these temperatures has been amazingly tough work," he added. "So, when we arrived this school had no running water but it will have by the time we leave."
The following day, the Force Headquarters Company continued to work their way through the complexities of their main task, including Operations Rooms and Orderly Rooms procedures:
"It's all going extremely well," said Sgt Dan Mifsud. "These guys are really keen to learn and they're very inquisitive. You can tell they've understood it from the depth of their questioning. Lots of their officers also sat in on the lectures - this morning we covered, 'The Law of Armed Conflict', 'Rules of Engagement' and 'Search Techniques'.
"We recognise that most of our subjects are classroom-based so we do those subjects first thing in the morning before it gets too hot."
Several miles from the main training centre Faraja Barracks, one hundred and forty members of the Gambian paramilitary police have turned up at their own barracks for the first day of training, having spent the previous week on Independence Day duties. There are only seats for fifty - so ninety troops sit on the floor. After an hour-long lecture from Sgt Kieron Alvarez, everyone goes outside for the practical demonstrations of Public Order training:
"It was a very hot morning to be wearing protective helmets and carrying riot shields," said Sgt Alvarez.
The value of this training is clear to the soldiers from the Royal Gibraltar Regiment, all of whom have enjoyed the unique challenge:
"Some of us have served in Afghanistan and Iraq," Lance Corporal Luke Traverso explained. "We know that it's up to us to ensure that the Gambians are as well prepared for Darfur as we were for our own deployments."
