KANNUR: As many as 592 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) recruits undergoing training at the CRPF Recruits Training Centre (RTC) at Peringome here passed out from the centre on Monday.
K.V. Madhusudhanan, Inspector General of Police of the CRPF, took salute at the passing-out parade. The recruits belonged to the 125th batch in the RTC. Assistant Commandant of the RTC Randhir Kumar Jha commanded the parade divided into 10 platoons, each commanded by special trainees.
A total of 25,772 recruits have passed out from the RTC since its inception in 1986. At present 1,250 recruits are undergoing training there. The RTC here is one of the five basic training centres for CRPF recruits in the country. Every year 1,500 recruits complete their basic training and pass out from the centre here.
During the course of the 44-week training they are put through intensive indoor and outdoor exercises by a team comprising about 400 trainers, officers at the training camp said. The curriculum includes training in using modern weapons and explosives. Recruits are familiarised with the techniques used by terrorist groups.
Intensive training in jungle warfare is also given. For this, trainees are taken to places surrounded by mountains. Ambience akin to that in the North East, Maoist pockets and Jammu and Kashmir are simulated during training.
Modern gadgets such as small arms training simulator system (SATS) had also been included as training aids.
