The workers received training in military professional ethics, leadership, discipline, time management, physical fitness, first aid administration, among others, which are expected to help enhance operations of the company.

Speaking at the passing out parade held, at the academy on Friday, Major General W. Omane-Agyekum, Commandant of the Academy,  said the course had become important as  certain virtues like time management was gradually ‘diminishing’ in the country.

He said the sense of time management and urgency were important in business transactions, and must be encouraged for national development.

Major General W. Omane-Agyekum, cautioned the trainees not to pose as military personnel and intimidate their colleagues and other members of the public, but they should be good ambassadors of the academy.
