Tamil, English courses improve forcesí language skills
English and Tamil language courses offered to the combined forces and police will help improve their inter-personnel relationship and language skills, said National Cadet Corps (NCC) Director, Major General Gamini Jayasundara.
He said so addressing a ceremony to distribute certificates to 102 police and combined forces personnel who successfully completed Tamil and English language courses, at the NCC headoffice, Pamankada.
Sri Lanka was freed of terrorism due to the commitment of the combined forces and police although there were issues among them during the conflict due to language barriers, Jayasundara said.
The NCC had organized these Tamil and English Language courses for the combined forces and police in collaboration with the Official Languages Department on Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s concept.
The Defence Secretary’s aim is to develop the country through discipline. These courses help officers have good knowledge of the country’s laws. They help to create a good understanding between these personnel, Jayasundara said.
He said that as a developing nation the defence sector is vested with a great responsibility to protect peace and maintain law and order.
”All officers in the combined forces and the police must work together to fulfill the country’s development goals,” he said.
The NCC will provide another training program to the members of combined and police in the near future. Some courses are still going on at Rantambe, he noted.
