Courses for Teachers & Volunteers
Officer Basic Training Course (OBTC)
OBTC is an annual training course conducted by NPCC HQ in order to prepare newly appointed teacher officers for their roles and duties in the school unit. In this 2 week training course including a 3 day adventure camp at Camp Resilience on Pulau Ubin, trainees will be able to familiarise themselves with the NPCC training syllabus, thereby allowing them to discharge their duties effectively and efficiently.
Through experiential learning during the course of OBTC, trainees would be exposed to the following:
