Horticulture officers undergoing in-service trg

PASIGHAT, Jan 6: The first batch of in-service horticulture officers are undergoing a six-month state-level in-service training which began at the 2 Mile training camp here in East Siang district on Monday.
EAC Dakto Riba, who inaugurated the training, said that “an in-service training is a professional training or staff development effort where professionals are trained and discuss their work methods and cases with others in their peer group to improve skills and responsibilities.”
He described such training programmes as “an opportunity for the in-service horticulture officers to learn new approaches and use modern technology and methods of cultivation.”
Riba advised the trainees to be well-prepared before implementing the knowledge they gain in their respective areas and fields “to boost the economy of the local growers and the state as a whole.”
Earlier, CHF Dean Dr BN Hazarika said “such efforts involve learning through the assistance and supervision of experienced and senior officers to impart vast and useful knowledge and skills that are directly applicable to the trainees’ workplace.
“Such training has benefits in that it is customized and encompasses real work experiences,” he added.
HDO Oter Gao informed that 25 horticulture officers from across the state will be trained in the first batch. (DIPRO)
