    Training Training of Allied Students

    Training Training of Allied Students



    Pakistan Army's training institutions over the years, have earned a vastly acclaimed reputation of providing quality training to own as well as allied officers. For the last five decades these training institutions have been preparing officers to perform their onerous duties toward national defence with pronounced sense of responsibility and honour.
    Pakistan Army's professional excellence, has attracted a great number of countries around the globe, which send their officers to Pakistan for military training. Be it the Pakistan Army's premier institute like, Pakistan Military Academy or basic/mid career courses of various arms and services, training of selected officers at the Command and Staff College Quetta or grooming of officers for higher rank responsibilities at National Defence University, Pakistan Army is fully equipped to impart training at any level.

    It is due to this reputation that the countries around the world send their officers for further grooming. English being the medium of instruction, makes it convenient for the allied officers. However, in case of language barriers, short language courses or courses with interpreters are organized.

    More than 650 allied students from over 55 countries attend various courses at different schools of instruction in Pakistan, annually. It is indeed, a matter of honour and pride for us that some of the graduates of these institutions are presently holding higher ranks in their respective armies, which is reflective of quality training being imparted. We also look forward to an even bigger and healthier mix so as to benefit from each other on one hand and strengthen the mutual relationship on the other.

    The courses are offered to allied countries under various programmes for which detailed information and methodology can be obtained by contacting:

    The Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) was established at Kakul in October 1947 soon after the creation of Pakistan. On 25th January 1948, “The First Pakistan Battalion” was instituted. Its companies were named after the luminaries of Muslim military history i.e, Khalid, Tariq, Qasim and Salahuddin. Two months later in March 1948, the Battalion was bestowed with Quaid-e-Azam’s patronage as Colonel-in-Chief and the most coveted claim “The Quaid-e-Azam’s Own’ While the Quaid’s failing health prevented him from visiting PMA, Khawaja Nazim-ud-din, the then, Governor General inaugurated it on behalf of the Quaid-e-Azam and presented the Quaid-e-Azam banner. Ever since, at every passing out parade, it is held aloft with splendid honour by champion company. Regimental colours presented in 1950 by Liaqat Ali Khan, the first Prime Minister of Pakistan and the National Standard in 1961 by General Muhammad Musa, the then, Commander-in-Chief of Pakistan Army, have been some of the honours showered on the Academy, which it has always jealously guarded and kept high in letter and spirit.




    The Indo-Pak War of 1965 necessitated Academy’s expansion and Second Pakistan Battalion was raised in December 1965. Its four companies were named after some renowned Muslim military leaders from the subcontinent i.e. Ghaznavi, Babur, Aurangzeb and Tipu. In early 1989, Third Pakistan Battalion was added to its fold. Its constituent companies were named after some very inspiring military generals in early Muslim history i.e. Haider, Ubaida, Saad and Hamza.

    The Pakistan Military Academy is very proud of hundreds of its graduates who gallantly fought during the Indo-Pak Wars of 1965 and 1971. Amongst them are the four recipients of Nishan-e-Haider, the highest gallantry award, three Hilal-e-Jurat, one hundred and seventy seven Sitara-e-Jurat, besides innumerable other gallantry awards. Its alumni have vindicated themselves at every moment of trial. They have immensely contributed in vast and variant roles ranging from national defence to national development and from mass relief to national reconstruction in perilous conditions.**

    PMA has come a long way since its inception in 1947. It has grown and expanded from stage to stage. Over the years, there has been colossal contribution towards improvement of the campus and enrichment of its curriculum. Presently, its facilities and curriculum full cater for all challenges and needs for the foreseeable future.
