During the 3rd session of the PKBN, the trainees underwent about 40 activities in their curriculum. Marching is one of these activities, developing values in the trainees such as discipline, teamwork and strengthened their mental and physical states. The physical and tough endurance activities that were included in the programme are aimed to develop the personal qualities of the trainees to be more determined, brave and strong-willed as well as self-confident in facing various challenges.
