1. Institutional Training

    1. Institutional training conducted at colleges and schools is the mainstay of NCC training and is conducted by Associate NCC Officers and Armed Forces personnel. The syllabus comprises Common Subjects and Service Subjects in the ratio of 70:30. While the Senior Wing/Division training is for three years and has 300 periods, the Junior Wing/Division training is for two years and encompasses 240 periods of training. The training year is from 01 April to 31 March. Training schedules planned for cadets ensure that the optimum benefits of the organisation reach maximum number of cadets. Emphasis is on practical training. Case study method of instruction, wherever possible, is made to facilitate active participation and better assimilation.
    2. Institutional training includes basic military training to the cadets as part of the curriculum and prepares them to join the Armed Forces. It is conducted with the following specific purposes:-
      1. Firstly, to expose young cadets to a `regimental way of life’ which is essential to inculcate in them the values of discipline, duty, punctuality, orderliness, smartness, respect for the authorities, correct work ethos, and self- confidence.
      2. Secondly, to generate interest among the cadets by including and laying emphasis on those aspects of Institutional Training which attract young cadets into the NCC and to provide them an element of thrill and excitement.
      3. Thirdly, to inculcate Defence Services work ethos that are characterised by hard work, sincerity of purpose, honesty, ideal of selfless service, dignity of labour, secular outlook, comradeship, spirit of adventure and sportsmanship.

  2. Camp Training

    Camp training is the practical manifestation of institutional training. The basic aim of camps is to introduce the cadets to a regimented way of life and to help in developing camaraderie, team work, leadership qualities, self-confidence, self-reliance and dignity of labour in the minds of the cadets. The cadets are exposed to the excitement of camp life where they apply the theoretical knowledge that they had gained in institutional training. It is mandatory for Junior Division/ Junior Wing cadets to attend at least one camp and Senior Division/ Senior Wing cadets to attend a minimum of two camps during the period of their enrollment. NCC conducts over 1450 camps annually at an average frequency of more than 100 camps in a month. Each NCC camp is structured for approximately 400 - 600 cadets with instructional staff comprising three to four officers and 15-20 Associate NCC Officers (ANOs)/ Permanent Instructors (PI) Staff/ Whole Time Lady Officers (WTLOs)/ Girl Cadet Instructors (GCIs). More than 8 lakh cadets attend these camps each year. Republic Day Camp is the acme of NCC training and is conducted in January every year.
