SOC #46 Commissioning Parade

At the commissioning parade, 15 ensigns were elevated to the rank of Second Lieutenant. thirteen were drawn from the GDF, and three from the Belize Defence.

The Standard Officer’s Course (SOC) provides a solid foundation for the subsequent professional development of all cadets entering GDF. It is consequently only an introduction to the officer training and development systems of all military and para military services in Guyana and the Caribbean, and must be supplemented by the appropriate specialist and technical training of the relevant services.

The syllabus of the course includes an intense programme of military skills and tactics, rigorous physical fitness, team activities designed to promote stamina and group spirit, leadership and command methods, management techniques, military law and national policy.
