ABOUT 10 officers from the Fiji Corrections Service will this week conclude a five-day training of Trainers Module One program in Nabua.

The program is aimed at providing the officers with better skills and more effective attitudes towards leadership and training.

The officers, according to a statement issued by the corrections service last week, were hand-picked from the department for the course so they could bring back the skills they attain and conduct in-house training programs and workshops.

"This is a new area for me and I am grateful to be part of this learning venture so that I will be able to give something back to the department," explained chief corrections officer Rusiate Batiratu.

He said he felt the program would allow him to enhance his career opportunities in terms of training fellow officers.

As part of the course, they will also be given the chance to design, develop and conduct training programs and presentations as well as on-the-job training.
