Menara Wesley, Kuala Lumpur, 12th January 2011 (Saturday) - It has been a long time since the Kuala Lumpur State Council (KLSC) had any form of officers training, which is typically divided to three levels - Elementary, Basic and Advance. On this day, an Elementary Officers Training Course was held with eighteen (18) participants including three (3) instructors from Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and even Seremban. A majority of the participants were from churches and schools expressing interest to start or revive BB and also Staff Sergeants and young officers from existing companies. The course is designed for any young adult, regardless if one comes from the rank and file or not. The main objective is to make participants realise the key nature of being and officer and how The Boys' Brigade works.
