The National Defense University (NDU) engaged 40 trainees from the Armed Police Force (APF) in a problem operation exercise in its teaching building on Jan. 2, during which the trainees coped with various "emergencies" calm and unhurried, and pulled it off successfully.
Upon the approvals of the State Council, the Central Military Commission and the general headquarters/departments of the PLA, the National Defense University started to carry out systematic training for the commanders at the ranks of corps and division from the active units of the Armed Police Force and the Public Security. To do that, it offered eight required courses including political work in the army, joint operation, duties of the Armed Police Force, emergency handling study and anti-terrorism operation research in accordance with their operational tasks and requirements. The strategic and campaign problem operation exercises such as stability maintenance and emergency handling have contributed effectively to the uplifting of the command capability of these senior and middle rank commanders.
It is learned that 200-odd senior and middle rank commanders of the Armed Police Force have received trainings in the National Defense University so far and they have become the "leading geese", so to speak, in the IT-based development of the Armed Police Force.
