Apart from the directly recruited officers, some officers are appointed by transfer of service or by promotion from the guarding staff. Though they are familiar with working in prisons, they need to receive the necessary training required for an officer-cadre staff. This 3-months in-service course is designed to provide such officers with necessary skills set, knowledge and exposure required for them to deliver duties in the capacity of an officer.Refresher Course
A refresher course of one month duration is being organized at regular intervals for serving prison officers. It has been envisaged that the Refresher Course for serving officers will provide opportunities for them to exchange experience with their peers and mutually learning from each other. The courses will also provide a forum for serving officers to keep abreast of the latest advances in various subjects. The purpose of refresher training is to ensure that skills among prison staff remain sharp and that previous learnings are retained and kept current.Computer Course
Computer courses of varying durations (10 days/6 days etc.) are conducted at the academy. The computer course consists of both theory and practical components related to computer applications. This course is especially for the officers who will be handling computers while on duty.
