This training is mostly carried out in schools and colleges by the cadets. In addition, depending upon the type of service, basic knowledge of that service is imparted to the cadets e.g gliding , powered flying for Air Wing cadets and boat pulling, sailing for Naval Wing cadets form part of institutional training. These activities comprise approximately 50% of the entire syllabus.
This is the most imp aspect of NCC Trg and hence great emphasis on institutional trg is given. State DDG's issue comprehensive instrs on organising the Institutional Trg at Gp / Unit level. Following actions are taken to improve the standard of trg:-
(a) Optimum utilization of PI Staff for Trg.
(b) Greater involvement of Offrs, WTLOs and ANOs.
Cdts are made to understand the aim and purpose of teaching drill, so that they are suitably motivated and do not take it as 'fatigue'. Emphasis is laid on correct bearing, marching, saluting and arms drill. Inter-squad competitions are organized to create interest.
Cdts generally take keen interest in wpn trg and firing. Units liaise with nearby Service and Para-Military Units to ensure that all cdts get an opportunity to fire their authorized amn. Use of firing simulators are also made to optimize trg efforts where possible.
State Dtes conduct these exams with great deliberation. No dilution on any score is acceptable.
Entry into Armed Forces.
Provisions exist for NCC 'C' Cert holders to join the Armed Forces as offrs. A great effort is taken at the Gp/Unit level to motivate, select and coach aspiring cdts to join the Armed Forces. Cdts are also given an opportunity to undergo 'Personality Development Capsules' as also SSB Coaching Courses at the OTA. Gp Cdrs ensure that their cdts are made aware of incentives for NCC 'B' & 'C' Certificate holders opting to join the Armed Forces / TA / and PMF.
